Electric Zoo 2012

There’s a lot of confetti at Electric Zoo 2012.  Lots and lots of confetti and happy people.  Photos will be in the Aquarian Weekly!  The shot below is during David Guetta’s set from Friday.  I like photographing him at the EBM festivals.  He sets his DJ table higher up (so you can actually see him) […]

Trespass America Tour @ Prudential Center (Aug. 18, 2012)

There’s something really great about a good metal show.  The energy, the music, the awesome fashion; it creates this frenetic and crazy awesome atmosphere.  You can check out the rest of the Trespass America photos at the Aquarian Weekly – print edition.

Black Cursive @ Tierney’s (Montclair, NJ)

Black Cursive is the band my little bro plays bass in.  The vocalist is pretty awesome and Tierney’s is always a fun place to grab a beer. https://www.facebook.com/blackCursive

Otakon 2012 – Aya Hirano & VIXX

You can view the rest of the Aya Hirano photos at purple SKY. I always think the Sunday concert gets shafted as far as attendees (lots of people go home Sunday morning), but Aya Hirano’s show was a packed event.  Though she hasn’t released any music and has recently been dogged by scandal, she sounded […]

Tenacious D @ Hammerstein Ballroom (June 28, 2012)

True to form, Tenacious D put on a kick ass show that managed to make a relatively large venue seem fairly intimate.  I didn’t even notice the giant penis rising up in the background until halfway through the show.  It was pretty impressive up close. You can see the rest of the photos in the […]

Berryz Kobo @ Anime Next

Berryz Kobo performed a concert at Anime Next this past weekend and were surprisingly entertaining.  I was hoping for at least one costume change and maybe something more interesting in terms of lighting or stage setup, but overall they played a good set for the limited space they had.  Their fans are quite devoted as […]

Still Reckless Tour @ Starland Ballroom (March 27, 2012)

A very packed Starland Ballroom with five metal bands?  Pretty awesome and waves of crowdsurfing!  The photos are in band order – The Amity Affliction, I See Stars, Motionless in White, Trivium, and Asking Alexandria. Shot this at 3200ISO with the Canon 5DMIII + 24-105F4.

L’arc~en~Ciel @ MSG NYC (5D Mark III/blackberry)

I was supposed to road test the Canon 5D Mark III at the L’arc~en~Ciel show at MSG last night, but ran into a miscommunication wall regarding my photo pass.  There’s nothing more enjoyable than lugging 15 lbs of gear around for a few hours and then being told 5 minutes before the show that the […]
