Terminal 5, NYC, 11.1.11 – This was a show I had marked on my calendar for quite a while.   I couldn’t wait to shoot Evanescence and check out the new line-up live.  A lot of old Evanescence fans constantly say how the new line-up isn’t Evanescence an that the new band is just not as […]

Irving Plaza, NYC, 10.26.11 – The first time I saw, or even heard of, G Love was back when he opened for Blues Traveler at Roseland in either 1994-1995, and I was hooked.  There’s nothing showy about G Love.  They are the perfect “chilling out” music, like sitting by the pool on a hot Saturday […]

Hammerstein Ballroom, NYC, 8.10.11 – They say alcohol has all types of victims.  Band of Horses was scheduled to open a long series of dates for Kings of Leon this summer, until Caleb’s love for the bottle put an end to that.   But Band of Horses refused to play victim.  Instead they scrambled to put […]

Terminal 5, NYC, 5/19/2011 – 3 weeks and about 80 miles apart I shot School of Seven Bells for the second time as an opener. A few weeks ago I covered them as they opened for Interpol at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park and just 3 weeks later, the music remained the same but […]


Photos: Rise Against with Bad Religion at Terminal 5

The Kills at Terminal 5 on April 29

Terminal 5, NYC, April 28, 2011 – The duo of Allsion Mosshart and Jamie Hince may give a first impression as being a bit unassuming; that’s until they take the stage. Backed by a drum machine and a stage presence you are only born with, you just can’t help feel a bit dirty at the […]


My Chemical Romance at Terminal 5, NYC

My neighbors 5 minutes to the south could have swung by and saved me the toll money; instead I hopped in my trusty Honda and weathered the 10 mile trip to Terminal 5 to shoot My Chemical Romance.  Being accused of softening up a bit with their most recent album, I was interested to see […]


Neon Trees opening for My Chemical Romance at Terminal 5, NYC

  I will say I knew not much about the Neon Trees besides their current radio hit.  This is one reason I love being a music photographer; bands like this surprise me.  One of the great stage shows of the year, Tyler Glenn is the epitome of a rock front man. Plagued with heavy back-lighting […]


The Architects opening for My Chemical Romance at Terminal 5, NYC

For what little I knew about Neon Trees, I knew much less about The Architects.  How good could the opener to the opener really be?  I sometimes skip the first band in a 3 band line-up but was glad I decided to get there in time for their set.  Another great live band and I […]
