Summer Snapshots

While I try to get work done it’s hard to write a new post, so I thought I’d put up some photos from the summer.

I accompanied Eric to Red Hook for his record mastering session, it was pouring most of the day but the sun came out for a little while when I saw these clever bucket planters

We played a couple shows with the Schoemer Formation this summer, another one coming up next Friday Sept 25 at Low Beat in Albany!

This had to be the smallest carnival ever – I love our little town

Hard to get a good shot when your hands are shaking in the presence of greatness

The picnic table at the back of our house, I spend a lot of time here in the summer

We filled the back room with a load of people and instruments – for Several Shades Of Green

Waiting for the train

Mundane but romantic meeting the train

I have to admit we only used it one time this summer!

It’s nice being “the country house” for my daughter and her boyfriend to escape to

Ian Hunter & The Rant Band in Hudson

The man and his band played around the corner so we had to go. It’s always a thrill, yes we got to get up and sing “All The Young Dudes”!

Drink & draw on Avenue A

I went into the coffee bar by my brother’s place and they were setting up for a little drawing session. I didn’t have the right materials but I wanted a glass of $5 rose and it was fun drawing with a bunch of 20-something girls

Old post office on 14th Street

I’m always hearing how things are changing but it really struck me this time – the post office between Ave A & First was famously miserable, crowded and long lines to wait in – I know I left there in tears of rage a couple of times. Still, it made me sad to see it gone.

Wes Stace invited us to play with a wacky assortment of characters – it was a good night in the city.

To wait for a train back home I sat up in Greeley Square and thought some things about the city had changed for the better – places to sit in midtown, a cheap empanada stand, a clean public toilet – in midtown…weird

Those long shadows, it’s almost over
