More pics for you guys. I have to say its been challenging fun trying to find photo sense Here’s to art of all forms and their commonalities
Here are a couple more scenic edits from my last session at Rockaway Beach!
Center of summer 2010, it’s a Village Voice event with an open bar of cranberry and vodka. A DJ and live performance still to come. Boldly styled scenesters and college folk highly afloat and cameras snapping. I am in Greenwich Village, NYC. Me and my gf are at the (Le) Poisson Rouge for the first time and having a nice time. A few weeks later we had to come back to a very similar situation for the first of the Si*se’ shows we’ve been to. Welcome.
(Le) Poisson Rouge is a multimedia artistic locale that can fully seat 250 and 750 fully standing dancers. Established by musicians, its innovative stage, sound, lighting and video system is a joy for the senses. ‘The venue’s mission is to revive the symbiotic relationship between art and revelry; to establish a creative asylum for both artists and audiences.
Its Summer 2012, we have returned to the Rouge, taking advantage of the happy hour, we get ready to dance. Monica Lionheart ‘electro-acoustic singer with band’ just realized her set and Si*se’ will soon play. The former is a quintet who’s mix of electronica, soul…is a bona fide cocktail of tunes. Reading their interview in issue #101 of Urban Latino magazine that I received at their Copacabana show I see how simply inspired, talented and modest they are. ‘This Love’ ‘The Chain’ a Pink Floyd cover and ‘Go’ in which the video was filmed at the Hiro Ballroom are live joy rides.
It’s a thrill to see Si*se’ as a fan and musician. For more than ten years and four albums, their growing in number, house party type of shows are a charming escape. If you’re looking for a good time with a date or friends, the band’s danceable jewels create an earthy vibe and the place to be. Add Si*se’ on Facebook and be on alert for the next local show they play.

Picture this, spend the afternoon with your girlfriend and a couple of friends on the surf and sand of Long Beach, NY. Beers, mimosa and waves to burn. When the time arrives, hop into the ride of your friend, grab a grand coffee from Starbucks and sit tight, you are on your way to play a rock and roll show. You’re awakened by a cell call by your friend, one of the head employees of Tattoo Shot Lounge and singer of GAS NYC, Jonny Kooklyn.
The Conversation went as follows…
Jonny Kooklyn: ‘Unfortunately the first band has cancelled and you’re on at eight sharp!’ Carlos the Chords: ‘No prob, Jon I’ll be there ’Tattoo Shot Lounge‘ and ready to go.
Being a performer you learn after a while that you have to adapt to change logically and efficiently. Waking up just as I arrived, check in with the door rep and up the heavily postered and stickered stairs. Pass the tattoo parlor and place my bodyboard bag, guitar and gear opposite the stage and prepare for the show and a helluva nite. Still picturing it?
Located in the heart of Coney Island on 1205 Surf Avenue, Brooklyn, NY the Tattoo Shot Lounge is the epicenter for rock and roll music entertainment in the area. Plenty of mosh, wallflower and seating space. A full bar with signature cocktails and specials all night. A Dj cooking up rock and metal tunes continually between sets. Bands have a back line consisting of mesa cabinets, Carvin 8 x 10 rig with head, full Yamaha drum kit with all hardware, including cymbals and hi hats. Annnnnd with its tattoo parlor and artist who is locally and nationally recognized, inking all night how rock and roll is it!!!!
There is a reason why Jonny Kooklyn is hustling from door to door of this venue doing business every weekend…he books the best independent bands within and beyond our state. GAS NYC, Connies ‘California, rock and roll/punk’, Shango ’local BK metal’, Sabbra Cadabra ’excellent Black Sabbath cover,’ Thrash Inc ‘early Metallica cover,’ Dj Alex Kayne and my own outfit ‘Transcend the Core‘ were booked on this night. Making it the most mind busting local show I’ve seen all year. I mean watch the videos and see how interestingly amazing the bands sound.
The best day of my summer…surf, sun and slew of fantastic, fast and passionate bands. Pictuuuure that!!!
Thank you Jonny for the booking, Derek Soto of Sinestra Studios for filming video and taking pictures, Connies for the shirt and cd, Miguel for the ride home and the ripping bands that played, holy moly, I’m still buzzing!
Cheers to summer surf, rock and roll and Coney Island.
