Noteworthy Photography

  • Burning Flags Press
    The website of Glen E. Friedman. Renowned for both his work with musicians like Fugazi, Minor Threat, Public Enemy, the Beastie Boys, Slayer (and many, many more) as well as his groundbreaking documentation of the burgeoning skateboard phenomenon in the late `70's, Glen has been privvy to (and has summarily captured on film) some of the coolest stuff ever. He's also an incredibly insightful and nice guy to boot.
  • SoHo Blues - Photography by Allan Tannenbaum
    Allan Tannenbaum is a local photographer who has been everywhere and shot everything, from members of Blondie hanging out at the Mudd Club through the collapsing towers of the World Trade Center on September 11th. You could spend hours on this site, and I have.
  • Robert Otter Photographs
    Amazing vintage photographs of New York City, specifically my own neighborhood, Greenwich Village.
  • oboylephoto
    Just some intensely cool photographs of abandoned places.
  • Rikki Ercoli's Legends of Punk
    Much like Glen E. Friedman (see above), Rikki Ercoli has managed to catch some amazing bands in their manic element.
  • Lost & Found Film
    A fascinating website devoted to undeveloped film found in vintage camers. A curious mixture of interesting and spooky.
  • Pinhole Photography by Veronica Saddler
    NYC landmarks shot through a pinhole lens. Neat-o.
  • Eugene Merinov
    Compelling shots of Punk, Post-Punk and New Wave band performing live in various long-lost venues in a pre-sanitized New York City. Great stuff!
  • Edward Colver

I was really tempted to go to the Specials show... But, you know, like you, my last journey there was for that Stooges gig. I vowed never to go back... Anyway, glad to hear they were still kicking it. Why no opening band?


We went to the Specials show and had the same experience....we waited, and waited, and waited. No announcements. No nothing. The recorded reggae/ska kept playing and playing, the obnoxious DJ's voice getting louder and louder. I had tissue in my ears and the guy's voice still literally hurt.

We packed it in about 9:30 after two hours of waiting, even though when we complained at the box office to an incredibly assholian bearded dork we were informed that the show would start in five minutes. Too late. Evening ruined. Major disappointment.

I don't remember having such a bad experience at the Stooges show, but I guess you're right. Terminal 5 blows. When it first opened, we liked it, but the Highline is such a better place in all respects....wish they booked better acts overall at the HL.


"He's like the Eeyore of Ska" is my favorite ska-related quote ever. I will walk around thinking about this, intermittently obviously, all day.

thank you.


Ah, Ras Trent. Bad-a-ding-ding-ding-ding wHOAAAAAAA.
