DMV Record Pull – first night.

The Future - DMV Record Pull
Harmony Music - DMV Record Pull   Jimmy Jones / KW Griff - DMV Record Pull

DJ Excel, DJ Booman and Bmore Original helped organize what I hope becomes a regular event, a record pull at Club Reality in Baltimore City. Labels, artists, DJs, Producers, and media from DC/MD/Va got together and talked, met each other, networked, performed, and had a dialogue. A cool event and very chill, low-stress, very little drama. Follow the record pull on facebook, or check out the new website.

Portrait Session : Rogue.


A couple of weeks ago I did a portrait session for Bmore Original recording artist Rogue. It was a lot of fun, I haven’t been shooting as many promo shots or portraits lately since I have been going to so many shows… it’s something I need to start doing more of again. Pictured are a few shots from the session.

balmer odds & ends.

been shooting a lot lately… here are a few shots i like:

i haven’t seen this band – one of my favorite bands – since… 2000? 2001? I saw them on tour on in name and blood in new orleans. they played with zeke who was (i think) a stoner-y rock band that incorporated clog dancing into their set. even though the dudes in mcd tried unsuccessfully to pick up my then-girlfriend in front of me, they were still awesome. i don’t know how much longer this reunion tour lasts, but go see them if you get a chance.

while benny was spinning, DJ Excel from bmore original brought it to my attention just how many baltimore club & hip-hop artists were in the room… so we origanized a quick group shot. from L to R: booman, chris brooks, scottie b, dj excel, rogue, cullen stalin, jimmy jones, derek from unruly, emmy, kw griff

on that same tip, here is a shot from a week earlier of scottie b and dan deacon, two of baltimore’s most influential artists:

i shot these for Vincent Black Shadow’s upcoming album Baltamont, which is now cancelled since they broke up. look them up if you haven’t hard them, they were a really good noisy punk/rock band.
