Captured live: Seasick Mama @ Union Pool

I caught Seasick Mama’s set at Union Pool on 10/18/2012 during the CMJ showcase. What a great front woman! I was definitely entertained. She sings really good, her band is on point, and I’m sure being really hot doesn’t hurt either. Next time she comes to NYC you should definitely try to catch her set you won’t be disappointed. Enjoy!

Captured live: Backwords interview/live @ Public Assembly

Late night during music festivals everyone starts getting a little sauced/intoxicated. This is where the fun begins. When you add music to the mix and a bunch of pretty hipsters you got yourself a great recipe for a classic Brooklyn night! In this clip I interview Tim Pioppo of Backwords at Public Assembly. Then go into some live footage from their set. Catch them tonight at Legions. Enjoy!

Captured live: The Suzan live @ Public Assembly(Extended)

I don’t even know where to start with these ladies. The Suzan are so good that I couldn’t possibly cut after the first song. The transition was perfection so I just kept it moving. Saori, Rie, Ikue, NICO and Fool Gold I love you all. Please continue to kick tons of ass. Enjoy! Let me know what you think.

Captured live: Maquina Supervium live @ Shea Stadium

I was invited by the gentlemen of Quiet Loudly to come check out their set over at Shea Stadium this Friday. I got there a little late. I believe I may have missed the first band. Sorry Libel, don’t worry I’ll catch up to you in the near future I promise. The first band I saw was Maquina Supervium. From the beginning I got gut punched by Nikkie fucking killing it on the drums. Me and Max(Lead singer of Quiet Loudly) didn’t even say anything to eachother. It was one of those moments where you make eye contact and just nod your head in approval like, “hell yea they’re fucking shit up!” The entire night was packed with beautiful music. So pretty. A night filled with roses and shit to the ears. I really enjoyed them. Check this clip out I shot. Rad stuff. Enjoy!

Captured live: Quiet Loudly @ Shea Stadium

I went over to Shea Stadium for the first time on Friday. I really enjoyed it. I’d love to own something along the lines of Shea. It’s like a big loft with a huge stage and a bunch of rooms. Reminds me of the Live at the Loft show. My buddies from Quiet Loudly invited me over for an intimate set. I’m use to seeing them on some huge stage with a bunch of people and I can barely move to capture anything. This place was big enough that a decent amount of people could relax in comfort and I could have some fun shooting. This clip is long overdue. Glad I finally got a really cool one of you dudes. Enjoy!

Oxymorrons live @ Afro Punk Festival

This is the first time I’ve ever seen or heard of the Oxymorrons. They were definitely one of my favorite acts of the whole fest. I’m kind of confused why I never came across them because they’re real dope. They had the crowd going crazy. I’m going to try to get my hands on some tracks. Until then I’ll just watch this on repeat. Enjoy!

Captured live: Reggie Watts @ Afro Punk Festival

Caught a quick clip of Reggie Watts during my Afropunk Festival adventures. He pretty much beat boxes, records, then loops it. Then sings, records, loops it. He continues the process until he has a fresh beat. Then he raps over top of it. I need some rest and relaxation in the field after seeing a few sets before this. So while we were on the lawn doing our hippy thing I captured this. I’m pretty far away from the stage so the quality isn’t the greatest but it’s enough for you to embrace the vibe. Enjoy!
