From The Archives: K.Flay and Colin Munroe at Glasslands, 7/13/12

Here are some shots of K.Flay and Colin Munroe at Glasslands back in July. It was such a good time that blood was gushing out of my face for no reason before they even started playing. Full album here.

If you haven’t already, cop K.Flay’s Eyes Shut and Colin Munroe’s Unsung Hero. K.Flay plays tonight at Cameo Gallery.

Portraits: Is Tropical on the East River Waterfront

These are a bit old, but I wanted to post them somewhere. I met the lovely boys of Is Tropical back in May, before their show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, and took a few mostly-candid snaps nearby at the East River ferry dock. This isn’t quite the great unmasking or anything, but more of their faces than we used to see.

“I don’t know if it’s still the same, but 20 years ago, when I was 14, America was the big thing. It was the country you loved and the country you wanted to go to, and you had the flag in your room and everything.”

Feature: Can You Tell Me How To Get To SXSW? (American Songwriter)

For up-and-coming musicians, playing at SXSW is the best opportunity to showcase their talents and impress the right people in the industry. However, since performances are typically unpaid, it takes a toll on the finances of artists whose careers have yet to fully launch. For those from other countries, the additional costs of traveling and acquiring American work visas are an extra burden.

From the archives: MGMT at the Guggenheim, November 2011

I took these pictures last year when MGMT did a couple of special presentations to accompany the Maurizio Cattelan: All exhibit at the Guggenheim, which consisted of a 45-minute vibe-out session with no discrete songs and a lot of spaceship noises. (It was awesome.) These photos ended up not getting published, but I was reminded that I had them when I was interviewing Yuksek yesterday, and I figured it’s about time I did something besides just let them languish on Flickr.
