Builders and the Butchers

Builders and the Butchers are one of my favorite bands to see live. I first saw them perform more than five years ago in Boston, when they were touring with the Dresden Dolls. Between the double drummers and captivating singer, I was an instant fan. I recently caught them opening  at Cafe Du Nord. The singer played so hard he broke a guitar string. The set was too short, but I was happy to capture some photos.

I finally recovered from our group photo show at the food truck park the other weekend. The day was long, but an incredible experience. I sold out of small square prints. Plus – HUGE PLUS – I sold my first framed print to a non-friend. A huge milestone!  I am following up on some other business opportunities that arose from the show. The event was such a success we are already hard at work planning the next one. The future is exciting.

As for my exhibit, I dug through my archives and curated a series entitled “gear p0rn.” I’ve  always been fascinated by DJ hands; the flick of a fader, the twirl of a knob, the mood of the dance floor at the will of  twists and presses. Mixers and turntables and CD-J’s are some of the instruments of choice for these nightlife heroes, conjuring beats in the midnight hours and beyond.
