Bass Tales: Ife of Sweetie @ Black Betty 8/27/08

A friend of mine recently mentioned that I rarely write about anything personal in this blog. Well, this is pretty personal — I am playing bass for a show tonight at Black Betty in Williamsburg.

I am writing about this at the last minute because I am nervous about my first show in NYC and don’t need the additional pressure.

I will write about my experience later. It will either be really funny or really sad. Maybe both.

Ife is the other half of Sweetie, a band who’s EP release party show I reviewed back in June. Ife’s grandmother is artist Elizabeth Catlett.

Summer Fun: Ebony Bones & The Last McCarren Park Pool Party

Besides shooting Voltaire and other interviews at Dances of Vice II, I spent part of this past Sunday at the last McCarren Park Pool party. This was my first summer to experience the pool party concert series, so I am glad I was able to go to at least two of the shows.

I found this clip on Flickr that was shot from the audience during British artist Ebony Bones‘ performance:

– by Flickr user hell yes!

While at the pool party, I was able to get a brief interview with Ebony Bones prior to and after her set. Her music is so sick, you can’t help but move your body. I am looking forward to her album dropping soon!

Props to Bryan (Kaos Blac) for telling me about her. He always seems to know about hot artists from all corners of the globe.
