Antlers make great “mope rock” in the words of Dan. They put on a rather intense show this weekend at Bowery Ballroom.

From the lightning fast quick trip to Cambodia for the nuptials of Brooks and Clara Parker.

Were there trips to nasty open air meat markets? Yes.
Did we celebrate the wedding at dawn at a stunningly beautiiful ancient temple? Yes.
Was it a trip to remember for a lifetime? Absolutely.
Could we afford it? Hell no.
Did it matter? Not a chance.

We love you Brooks and Clara.

Two days later and I’m now putting up pics from Open House New York this Sunday. Exhausting day and there was a wedding to shoot following but brief report and pics below!

The day began at City Hall where Manhattan historian Michael Miscione ;ed a bike tour of the city, from the lower end up through Central Park and then down the east side. Why City Hall? Because that’s where a portrait of the bike’s subject, Andrew H. Green is hanging. It was a rare treat to go inside one of the city’s more closed buildings.

The event space 632 Hudson is jaw-dropping in it’s intricacy and detail. Formerly a sausage factory, the building was bought by it’s current owner 18 years ago. ¬†Prior to that it had been a general store and residence. ¬†Now it hosts events, weddings, functions, bar mitzvahs. Fun fact: It also housed the second New York cast of MTV’s The Real World.

The biggest highlight though was saved for last: a guided tour of the northern section of the High Line, scheduled to open to the public in some time, but not for a while. Seeing the overgrown train tracks, dividing the west side railyards and the West Side Highway, was a very rare view of the city. We had to leave early to get ready for the wedding unfortunately but I look forward to finding a way back there at some point.

Upper East Sider Marnie Stern brought her album release party to Park Slope’s Rock Shop last night. The new small venue allowed her and her bandmates to get intimate with the crowd. Real intimate. And she rocked. Pics below.

(btw – opener Little Scream was a fantastic surprise. She looks like a young Susan Sarandon, has a flute player on stage with her and carries a raw energy about her that’s completely infectious.)

Better late than never… pics from the Superchunk show at Music Hall of Williamsburg Sunday night. They rocked. Their new album is out now.

Hearing the strains of any of the 12 tracks from Guns n Roses epic masterpiece “Appetite for Destruction” stirs the heart of every kid who grew up in the 80s. And when Slash brought his band to Terminal 5 last night, hearing them play Night Train, Rocket Queen, and Civil War (among some recent songs), all those wonderful feelings came rushing back. Who could rock like Guns n Roses back in the day? That’s right, no one. Opening was the unfortunately named, but enjoyable nonetheless TAB The Band.

Pics below. Enjoy.

Gorgeously engaged couple (and my co-worker) Christina and Rob celebrated their eventual marriage with a fun-filled photo extravaganza at Coney Island this Labor Day. Among the many wonderments we took advantage of: bumper cars, (un)safe rides and a diversion to the boardwalk where a seagull mistook Christina for a toilet.

Marina Diamandis, aka Marina and the Diamonds, played last night at Webster Hall. Their sound and crowd are much like the similarly named and outrageous Florence and the Machine. Big voiced and personalitied frontwoman, overwhelmingly enthusiastic audience, melodic sing-along choruses. Good times.

Jessy and Emily celebrated their love for each other this weekend with a ceremony set against the stunning backdrop of the Rocky Mountains, in Foothills Community Park, Boulder, CO. The interfaith, same-sex ceremony included a glass stepping, a ring exchange, a bbq, a mysterious stuffed bear, a cupcake mountain, and a hint of rain.
