L.A. band Local Natives joined New Jersey band Titus Andronicus at last night’s (Thursday, October 21st) Spin Magazine/Ray-Ban event.  Below are pics from the downtown party at an old firehouse.

TITUS ANDRONICUS

I came across this photographer’s website and I’m both extremely jealous of his career, but also ready to become his assistant.  Where do I sign up?

Willsher has captured some of the hottest indie and mainstream acts out there – from candid moments to the more stylized settings – and I’m pretty floored.  He’s done editorial work for NME, Spin, and Nylon, and is inspired by the UK rock scene (including David Bowie).  He’s got a very creative eye and will likely make any audiophile envious of the scenes he’s captured.

Check out the brilliance over at his site: http://www.andywillsher.com/

Last night, Spin Magazine and Canon teamed up to host an amazing event at Hiro Ballroom in NYC’s Chelsea area.  I had a chance to attend and witness the brilliance of Girl Talk.

During his 90 minute set, Girl Talk (aka DJ Gregg Gillis) attacked the turntables and mashed the craziest classic and contemporary songs to create brilliant dance tracks…it’s the stuff the Jackson 5 would have never thought could be done to their hits.

Open bar, killer DJ, outstanding venue.   Here are my pics from the debauchery.
