Brian Fallon / Ryan Bingham / Paul Cauthen – Terminal 5 – New York, NY – 9/26/16

The final touring leg in support of Brian Fallon’s debut album Painkillers happened in the Fall of 2016 with support from Ryan Bingham and Paul Cauthen.  If the New York show was any inclination of the tour, the night was spent with storytelling, sing-a-longs, and deep cuts.  Even though Terminal 5 is a fairly large venue, each… Read More Brian Fallon / Ryan Bingham / Paul Cauthen – Terminal 5 – New York, NY – 9/26/16

Preservation Hall Jazz Band – Highline Ballroom – New York, NY – 4/25/17

New Orleans came to New York and for that we are forever grateful.  The city of New Orleans is a magical, cultural, musical, and mysterious place.  Nothing can replicate it, sorry Popeyes.  However, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band can tour with it, well the music at least, and make you feel like you are down… Read More Preservation Hall Jazz Band – Highline Ballroom – New York, NY – 4/25/17

Me First & The Gimme Gimmes / Masked Intruder / PEARS – Webster Hall – New York, NY – 4/23/17

Me First & The Gimme Gimmes finished their East Coast run in the great state of New York at Webster Hall.  PEARS, who I personally believe that if Henry Rollins and Iggy Pop formed a band this would be it, opened the show with what could possibly be the best live show I’ve seen in… Read More Me First & The Gimme Gimmes / Masked Intruder / PEARS – Webster Hall – New York, NY – 4/23/17

John The Gun – The Bitter End – New York, NY – 4/21/17

After the Rehasher show, I headed over to the Bitter End to catch John The Gun once again.  It’s been quite some time since I photographed this band, and a few things have changed.  For one they are now a four piece, which only makes them stronger musically and performance-wise.  Another change is new songs.… Read More John The Gun – The Bitter End – New York, NY – 4/21/17

Rehasher / We Are The Union / MakeWar – Mercury Lounge – New York, NY – 4/21/17

Once and awhile, when Less Than Jake take a short breather, Roger Lima explores his other band Rehasher.  For those that don’t know who Rehasher is, think the punk songs of Less Than Jake, i.e. no horns or upstroke guitars, blended with bands like Lagwagon and Descendents.  Quite honestly the best mix you can have.… Read More Rehasher / We Are The Union / MakeWar – Mercury Lounge – New York, NY – 4/21/17

Austin Plaine – Rockwood Music Hall – New York, NY – 1/30/17

After seeing Austin Plaine in 2015 at Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ with Brian Fallon, click HERE for photos, I became a big fan of his work and his outlook on life.  Any time he came through either New Jersey or Pennsylvania I tried my hardest to go out to the show.  I am writing this as a… Read More Austin Plaine – Rockwood Music Hall – New York, NY – 1/30/17
