At Fourth Wall in Boston, JURNE and MWM opened their show entitled ALGORHYTHMS, a project the two writers have been working on for quite some time and definitely a ambitious project with the amount of work showcased. Jeff Griecci, the man behind the highly anticipated [...]

After the ‘Friends with Benefits’ show at the Distillery, I headed over to the House of Blues to photograph DJ Sigma and RUSKO. This was the 3rd time in the last year I have had the opportunity to photograph RUSKO and he really is a crowd pleaser. These photos do very little justice to the [...]
On Friday night I had the pleasure of photographing Phutureprimative and Shpongle at the House of Blues in Boston.

They were kind enough to give me a pass for the show last night with Savoy in Worcester at the Palladium. Rusko will be playing tonight (2/10) in Amherst at [...]
