ONLY THE "HAVES" CAN IGNORE CLASS WAR




I'm still plugging away through photos from the past month, but in the meantime check out this three person exhibition I have work in and an end-of-summer-party-to-end-all-summer-parties hosted by Chief Mag.

Heist Gallery is proud to present REVERB.

REVERB is an exhibition about the persistence of an experience that reminds us how unmistakably alive we are. Like the absorption of sound by surrounding walls that trap the echo of its source, these photographs capture the result of experience so vivid and real that it becomes an infinite reverb. Reverb amplifies the raw spirit of a good punk song, defining its essential point, turning noise into a justification of its effect. The photographers presented in this exhibition achieve exactly this effect in their depicted images, capturing life as they live it in the impending now that has no before and whose after doesn't matter.

REVERB opens on September 11th from 6-8pm, and will be on view till October 5, 2008.

MP3:

After watching Rage Against The Machine perform in the crowd acapella at the RNC, I was reminded how much I appreciate Mr. Rocha. I'm embarrassed to admit that in high school I wouldn't let myself be a fan because the band was popular with the "Jocks" (mortal enemies of Punks, after all). Well I'm getting a second chance, as Mr. Rocha has a new band, One Day As A Lion. I was skeptical, but it's pretty good, like Rage with an update. One song reminds me of newer Parts & Labor, another seems to have hints of Death From Above 1979 (both amazing bands, so that speaks well in my mind).

• One Day As A Lion - Last Letter

A band's place in myspace.

  1. "only the haves can ignore..." isn't that a contradiction considering you graduated from Pratt?
