Live Music – The Maine @ Warped Tour 2014

The very last band that I shot at this year’s Vans Warped Tour 2014 was the alternative rock band, The Maine.  With the sun quickly setting, I wanted to get one last band in before the light disappeared over Jones Beach…


Live Music – Four Year Strong @ Warped Tour 2014

Even with their normal drummer away at a wedding, punk rockers Four Year Strong stormed Vans Warped Tour at Camden, New Jersey for a mosh heavy set…


Live Music – The Menzingers @ Webster Hall

Right at the start of their Rented World tour, punk rock band The Menzingers filled up Webster Hall in New York City, and essentially brought back old school moshing and punk crowd sing-alongs and crowd surfing, and I was there for it…


Live Music – Stick to Your Guns @ 89 North

Its been about half a year since I last saw the boys in Stick to Your Guns, and I was about due to catch them again.  Headlining the 2nd day of the Today’s Mixtape Festival at 89 North in  Patchogue, NY, I once again had the chance to catch them tearing things up and taking names in the name of hardcore music…


Live Music – Modern Baseball @ The Paramount

Opening up for Bayside, I caught pop punk band Modern Baseball right as they hit the stage at The Paramount…


Live Music – Bayside @ The Paramount

A hometown, sold out show (the last band I shot for the year 2013!) for the punk/alternative rockers Bayside gave way to a wild time at The Paramount recently…


Live Music – Man Overboard @ The Paramount

So sorry it’s over… so sorrrrry its overrrr… wait; that’s the Blink 182 song, not the band, Man Overboard.   Playing at The Paramount and opening for Bayside, I caught these pop-punkers a few days before the new year…


Live Music – NK @ The Paramount

When Christmas lights and projection overlays meet, it creates some interesting lighting looks: such as what could be found here for NK, a new post hardcore experimental (honestly, I can’t think of an actual genre for them) band, composed of the drummer from The Dillinger Escape Plan, and former members of Envy On the Coast…


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 – Reel Big Fish – Warped Tour 2013

After a day of shooting mainly heavy and brutal hardcore and metalcore bands, I decided to mix things up a bit and shoot a sweet ska punk band who have been on Warped Tour many, many times in the past, Reel Big Fish…


Live Music – Alkaline Trio @ Best Buy Theater

Three guys with a heart with a skull in the center as their logo happen to be one of the most loved punk bands this day and age.  Alkaline Trio is their name, and rockin’ out at a sold out New York City show is what they did…


Live Music – Bayside @ Best Buy Theater

Bayside is a band that hails from Queens, and with hundreds of screaming girls of all ages singing along with their pop punk tunes, it was clear they were at home at The Best Buy Theater in New York City…


Live Music – Off With Their Heads @ Best Buy Theater

“Oh man, you’re shooting Off With Their Heads?  I’m jealous, I love those guys”, my friend Nick said to me.  “Why is that?” I asked.  Nick replied, “because they’re just a bunch of fat, beer drinking dudes that rock out and sing about drinking beer and being fat, I love it!”  And really, isn’t that […]


Live Music – Kvelertak @ The Studio Webster Hall

For Norwegian punk/hardcore/metal band Kvelertak (pronounced Kuh-vell-er-tack), sometimes playing on a stage just isn’t as enjoyable as playing on a bar or while a dozen hands lifting you up…


Live Music – Every Time I Die @ Irving Plaza

Every Time I Die has EASILY been one of the most challenging  but absolutely enjoyable bands that I’ve had the pleasure of shooting so far. They played a to a sold-out crowd at Irving Plaza, and no one in the band stood still for less than a second…
