Kendrick Lamar, YC the Cynic, Nitty Scott MC, Jah-C & the Antidote @ Southpaw – 6.17.11

Took a week to finally get around to these flicks, but they’re finally here! So much to say about this show, but I want to keep it short and sweet… we’ll see how this goes… First of all, I walked into this show not having heard any of Kendrick Lamar‘s music. Although a lot of … Continue reading

Random Axe, Black Moon, Skyzoo, Da Beatminerz @ Southpaw – 6.22.11

What can I say – it was a Duck Down kind of night over at Southpaw last night… third night at Southpaw in seven days and the crowd in attendance was not letting up. Packed yet again! This time, it was for Sean Price, Guilty Simpson and Black Milk (aka Random Axe) in their first … Continue reading

J*Davey, Elevator Fight, Jasmine Solano & Shyvonne @ Southpaw – 6.21.11

Yesterday afternoon, I got a phone call from Jah-C telling me that he really needed me to be at Southpaw last night. “We just confirmed that somebody really big is coming to the show, but you can’t tell anybody!” No problem – I can keep a secret… Besides, I was already happy with the caliber … Continue reading

Wordspit & Machine Gun Kelly @ Gramercy Theater – 5.22.11

OK, so I wasn’t going to shoot at this show, but thanks to my partner in crime NattyNight’s insistence, I shot performances by Wordspit & Machine Gun Kelly last night at Gramercy Theater. Shouts to Jasmine Solano, D.A. the Future and Hollywood Holt for rounding out the show! Wordspit: Twitter | www.wordspitwashere.com Machine Gun Kelly: Twitter … Continue reading

Pharoahe Monch & Jean Grae @ Brooklyn Bowl – 5.10.11

Tuesday night, the masses descended upon Williamsburg to Brooklyn Bowl to bask in the aura of some of hip hop’s finest artists (OK, I was feeling myself a little with that intro…) Pharoahe Monch and Jean Grae were the headliners; unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make it in time to catch the opening acts, such … Continue reading

One big party… Body Language, Melo-X, Nyle vs The Naysayers, Rebel Tec & Recess put on a fantastic show last night at Southpaw! Just a few shots – I might post a few more later…

Bad Rabbits @ The Knitting Factory – 2.22.11

OK, so this photo of Bad Rabbits (pictured with Cody B. Ware & Dirty Souf Yankee) is from last year, but my camera is currently in ICU (coincidentally, it broke at the last Bad Rabbits show I attended in Providence, RI). Anyway, if you weren’t at last night’s show at The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, … Continue reading

Jesse Boykins III & Emily King @ 92Y Tribeca – 2.4.11

I haven’t seen Jesse Boykins III nor Emily King perform in AGES, so it was a special treat to check out their show last Friday at 92Y Tribeca. Nothing but good music and an intimate vibe…much needed after a hectic week! Jesse Boykins III: www.jbiiimusic.com | @jb3music Emily King: www.emilykingmusic.com | @emilykingmusic

Rise of the Underground @ Le Poisson Rouge – 2.3.11

Wow. I don’t know what to say about this show, or what words to use to describe what happened on the stage at Le Poisson Rouge. All I can say is that (MISS!) Kimberly Nichole, Sophia Urista, Jaiden (The Cure), Rahbi and (MR!) Charles Perry brought down the house…a packed house, I might add. When … Continue reading
