SteamShipKillers CD Release Party

Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys released a new CD, SteamShipKillers (BandCamp link) Friday night. Jaggery, who had just recently released a Double-Single, opened. Two of my favorite Boston-based bands in one place? Bliss.





There’s more in the full gallery, including one with a mostly naked girl. Bet that got your attention, eh?

I keep shooting these guys because they and their live shows are Made of Utter Awesome; they’re on a mini-tour in the northeastern US as I type. Dates are on the front page of their website!

Boston Underground Film Festival Opening!

Last night there was a stellar line up at TT the Bear’s for the Boston Underground Film Festival Tokyo Steampunk opening party: Owl Watcher, Jaggery, Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys, and HUMANWINE.

There are a total of forty one pictures in the full gallery. You should look through it, you’ll feel good! I present you with a few highlights:



If you’re one one of the musicians that I photographed I will happily give you un-watermarked, full-resolution images and rights to use them. Please let me know if you’re interested!

The Armory – 2010/03/11

There was a delightful night of eclectic music on Thursday at The Armory Cafe. Performing was The Boston Typewriter Orchestra:


Animal Hospital:


And last, but certainly not least, Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys:


There are a couple more in the gallery.

Post-processing these was slightly challenging – it felt like there was twenty million different lights in each shot, each with a different and weird color temperatures. I could have made different choices but ultimately I decided to try and make sure everyone’s skin tones looked vaguely natural; getting that wrong was more jarring, in my opinion, than any other option.

Kim, Kayla, and ENSMB!

Friday night I had the pleasure of attending a kick-ass show at Lily Pad in Inman Square – Kayla Oberlin opened for Kim Boekbinder, who was also joined by Emperor Norton’s Stationary Marching Band!

I’m not going to play music critic aside from saying it was awesome and you should listen to their music and buy their stuff; instead I’ll show you the pictures I took:

There’s even a couple more in the gallery.

Go to their shows! Buy their music!
