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 know it wasn't at the Bandshell, but I saw Sun Ra and Sonic Youth share a bill in Central Park, at the dawn of the '90s, I think. (EV Grieve says it was July 4, 1992. So there.) I met two of my guitar heroes, Arto Lindsay and Robert Quine, the same weekend. It was the New Yorkiest of New York trips.

(I met Lindsay backstage at the gig; I met Quine in a guitar store in the Village. When my buddy and I approached him, he was typically wry but apparently flattered: "Hey, you guys know who I am? Nobody knows who the fuck I am!")

I was at that show too, and you can see some video of it on this post:

Great post!
The Heat was sort of an off-shoot of the Planets (Tally) & I think the drummer (Jeff) may have been in the Dots.
Saw lotsa good stuff at the bandshell--Konk, Mitch Ryder, Scott Morgan band, Kraut, etc., and my High School's (A & D) field day was there every year--meet up at the fountain!
