Busy busy with work, but here are some photos I’ve recently taken on my trips to San Francisco, Sacramento and Austin. I’ve also started a new project: a photo a day for 365 days. You check it out here.


Noah and the Whale

I had the pleasure of checking out Anni Rossi, Ferraby Lionheart and Noah and the Whale at The Bowery on May 1st.  Prior to the performance, I had only heard of Noah and the Whale. Boy, what a well-matched lineup.

Armed with only her viola and a drummer, this girl gave a solid performance. Her voice and unpolished style reminds me a lot of Regina Spektor, often breaking off into instrumental tangents.

I was the only one yelling when Ferraby Lionheart revealed that he was currently residing in Nashville. It sure has knocked the LA out of him.  There definitely was a twang in the folk.

Frankly, everything about Noah and the Whale reeked of Wes Anderson. From their giveaway band name, down to the very fact that you could close your eyes to every song and play it to a scene from “The Darjeeling Unlimited”. If you do a little research online, you’ll find out that the auteur director is in fact a big influence on this band. I guess if you like Wes’ movies, then chances are, you’ll love their music.

I flew back to Nashville this past weekend for Vanderbilt’s annual Rites of Spring concert. The programming board did a great job with the lineup the four years I was in town (artists included Spoon, Clap Your Hands, and The Avett Brothers). However, this year, the first year that I am NOT at Vandy, they come out with NERD, Santigold, Okkervil River, TI, Q-Tip, and THE FLAMING LIPS! Students get in for $20 for both nights. What a great deal. What a great party! Check out some of the photos that I snapped in Nashville!

The second annual World Pillow Fight Day in New York took place on Wall Street today. Pretty epic. Cops were definitely huge party poopers. It’s one thing to keep citizens safe, another thing to be just plain mean. A fellow pillowfighter was trying to explain why the pillow fight was taking place on Wall Street this year. People just want to have fun, but also protest against the Wall Street bailouts. The cop simply responded, “Today is not the day for change”.

A while ago, my old classmate from high school invited me to one of his sets. I took the opportunity to take some low light photography with the 50mm f/1.4 that I rented. Good thing! I was literally shooting in the dark, but still managed some shots. Check their music out. Head over to flickr for the rest of my set.

Taken at the National Aquarium at Baltimore, which won the “Best Over Priced Destination for Families” in 2006. I didn’t think so. I can still use my student discount until I’m 40.
