Live Music – Kvelertak @ Webster Hall

The last time I caught Kvelertak, it was in a small, hot, packed room at the Studio at Webster Hall.  This time, they were at Webster Hall again, but in the much larger, much less jam-packed grand ballroom of Webster Hall – still making people go mad with their crazy black-rock-and-punk-roll Norwegian metal…


Live Music – High on Fire @ Webster Hall

No one can deny the fact that Matt Pike is a heavy metal legend.  The dude is practically the Lemmy of metal (where as Motorhead is more hard rock and roll than metal), even if over the years, he’s gotten a bit of a gut, a bit more grey hair, and a bit raspier of a voice, his […]


Live Music – Crown the Empire @ Gramercy Theatre

Crown the Empire is one of the more popular metalcore bands around, getting pretty big, pretty fast.  Mainly, because girls like them.  But dudes do too; and while they have some catchy tunes, they also have great stage presence for taking photos of…


Live Music – I See Stars @ Gramercy Theatre

Electronic and hardcore?  How the heck does a band mix those?  Well, I See Stars does, and manages to do it pretty well, even if the stage lightning is all over the place…


Live Music – Get Scared @ Gramercy Theatre

Third on the bill of the Started From the Bottom Now We Here tour is the groovy rockers Get Scared, putting on a fun show to see and even more so to photograph…


Live Music – The Word Alive @ Gramercy Theatre

The last band of the night, co-headlining the “Started from the Bottom Now We Here Tour“, was The Word Alive.  I’ve shot them before, and had a bit of trouble then, but was ready for their crazy stage antics this time…


Live Music – Attila @ Gramercy Theatre

Attila came through New York City recently for their About That Life tour, and I was there to shoot them; in all their rapcore, deathcore, Suck My Fuck –core glory…


Live Music – Upon A Burning Body @ Gramercy Theatre

Everything is more brutal when its from Texas.  Well, at least Upon A Burning Body is.  The group of 5 well dressed gentleman, who melt your face off with some heavy deathcore riffings and rocking, passed through Gramercy Theatre in NYC recently as the main support for Attila…


Live Music – We Came As Romans @ Irving Plaza

After shooting them just a few month ago during Warped Tour, I had another crack at We Came As Romans during their Halloween show at Irving Plaza in New York City for the Tracing Back Roots tour.  After feeling like I didn’t get many good shoots, how did round two turn out?…


Live Music – Silverstein @ Irving Plaza

No, that’s not actor Brian Cranston as Walter White that you’re looking at; it’s actually guitarist Josh Bradford of Silverstein, who with his goatee, looks eerily similar to the great Heisenberg himself.  For their Halloween performance at Irving Plaza recently, Silverstein all dressed up as Breaking Bad characters, and it was AWESOME…


Live Music – Senses Fail @ The Emporium

Post-hardcore band Senses Fail traveled deep in to eastern Long Island recently for a show, not to far from their New Jersey homes.  While typically a club, The Emporium has live music, sometimes…


Live Music – Stray from the Path @ Revolution

Hardcore.  Home town show.  350 capacity venue.  SOLD.  OUT.  Excuse me for being excited, but these are guys that grew up where I did, and are now selling out shows.  Stray From The Path for the 3rd time this year…
