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

Killing Joke @ 9:30pm? Give me a fucking break. What? Everyone has to be home in bed by midnight or some shit? That's a ridiculously early start time for a middle of the week show. Make it 10pm at the EARLIEST. Big deal if it started at 11. Figure they're over by 12:30am and you get home by 2am at the latest, lose a few hours of sleep before getting up at 6-8am for work. Too bad the Boston show was the day before not the day after.

Airlines are a fucking unfunny joke nowadays. They should pay every passenger a dollar for every minute past a half-hour after the arrival time e.g. if you depart at 3pm Central Time, your flight is supposed to arrive by 6:30pm Eastern Time, and it arrives at 11pm ET (4.5 hours late), you are paid $240 ($1 a minute x 240 minutes for 7-11pm.) Time is money!

Sorry about the weather delay Alex. Won’t help you feel any better but at least you’re alive to see them again. Unsafe air travel is very uncool. We care about you making it home OK. Hope you can catch them at another venue. Very bummed to hear this.


Ugh, this is the sort of thing I could easily see happening to me. So f'in frustrating. Sorry, that really sucks. I also agree with "X"'s comment- 9:30 headliner?!? WTF? I remember bands headlining at the Ritz going on midnight or 1am in the 80s. Ridiculous.


bummer, so sorry to hear.
