Some of you may know that I'm involved with the East River Music Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to putting together free shows at an awesome venue and showcasing (generally) local acts (read mission statement here).
Here are pictures for the season opener today:
Soiled Mattress and the Springs, which I previously saw/shot at a WBAR concert (see here).
Audience participation during Lucky Dragons, who took part in this year's Whitney Biennial and who curated today's show. You wave rocks over this thing, and it has a theremin deal going on.
Animental, a pretty rad band from Brooklyn.
Lexie Mountain Boys, who are four ladies.
John Wiese also played a set, which I caught just enough to get a sense of what he's about (noise) but not quite enough to get my camera all ready. David Horvitz opened.
