Sugartime at the Parkside Lounge

Sugartime at the Parkside Lounge

It was so nice to see Sugartime playing to a full house. This is the way they should be seen, in a small dark club like the Parkside Lounge packed with fans. They sounded better than ever, too!

Gandalf Murphy & The Slambovian Circus of Dreams

Went up to Hamilton, NY to visit one of my oldest and best friends, Meredith. Got a chance to see Gandalf Murphy play at the Barge Coffee Company. The occasion was the manager Susan's birthday. A wonderful time was had by all. I was actually behind the counter when I took most of these, so the quality isn't exactly good. Gandalf Murphy however was incredible.

Happy birthday Susan!

Eamon Hamilton at Galapagos - March 1, 2008

Saturday morning...I'm getting ready to shoot a gallery opening in the afternoon...I'm starting to get stressed about money. I'm checking my email, and see an item from a Maryanne Ventrice, a friend of mine, saying that she's won a place on the guest list plus one to see Eamon Hamilton of Brakes Brakes Brakes and British Sea Power do a solo acoustic show at Galapagos, and does anyone want to go. I'm thinking...I'm going to be tired, I'm pretty broke...blah blah blah. I'll just go home and pass out after the gallery gig. Then I say, the hell with it, I haven't seen Maryanne in months, and really missed shooting gigs with her. So I ended up making it up to Williamsburg and having a wonderful time.

And needless to say, Eamon gave a wonderful show. He seemed a bit nervous at first, but after each song he seemed more and more comfortable.

Thank you Maryanne!!!!
