NIK TURNER’S HAWKWIND, KILLER MOON AND PLASTIC CRIMEWAVE SYNDICATE

Here are some pics from a psyched-out nutzoid show that happened at Reggies a couple weeks back.  First, Plastic Crimewave Syndicate  bashed through some spaced out punk jams, then Killer Moon oozed some droney, tripped out tunes, and then Nik Turner’s Hawkwind  hit the stage. I love the Hawkwind of the yesteryears and heard that there were currently two versions of this legendary band touring and fighting over who gets to be called Hawkwind so who knew if this would be any good.  Man!  This thing floored me.  Nik’s band was composed of some dudes from a bunch of classic British punk bands and they totally ripped through a ton of Hawkwind’s Space Ritual era songs.  It was so unbelievably good, it cruised along for at least an hour and a half, and I was really sad that it ended.  I can’t wait to see David Brock’s Hawkwind in March!

KATIE AND MARIO

Katie and Mario got hitched at a Hubbard St. design studio that was converted into a spacious party ground for one steamy night in August.  We took a stroll around the hood, snapped some shots and headed back up to the party where a handful of their closest friends were loosening up in preparation for this couples unification.  Katie and Mario pledged their devotion to each other in an ultra-sweet and short ceremony and out came the grub that Get off the Couch Catering deliciously provided (Mario’s grandad also supplied some excellent baklava!).  Right after dinner, a man with an ice cream cart appeared and everybody sugared up for what was to become a hot ‘n sweaty summer rager.   This party was a blast!

KATE AND DAVID’S WEDDING

Kate and David were married on a warm and sunny Saturday evening in the hidden gardens of Honky Tonk BBQ. The ladies popped some champagne and prettied up while the dudes kozzied some cold beers and suited up. It was now that time! Guests and family mopped up the joyful tears that streamed from their eyes as Kate elegantly walked down the aisle. Vows and looks of love were exchanged under the ceremonial Chuppah and it was time to break the glass. There was no glass within reach so David bolted past the congregation and vanished for a few suspenseful seconds. He quickly emerged with a plastic tumbler and shouted “Plastic’s okay, right?” Nobody seemed to mind so under the foot of David went the plastic cup. Mazel Tov indeed! After the ceremony,  a few signature  cocktails were served and on came  an incredible spread of Honky Tonk’s finest meats and sides.  After dinner the couple was welcomed and toasted into their new marriage.  Then they sauntered and swayed their way around the lawn as they danced for the first time as a married couple.  Rebecca, from Toast and Jam,  laid out the hits and got everyone on the dance floor…I mean lawn.   The drinks flowed and out came the sparklers.  Guests danced, laughed, played with fire and wrestled furniture.  I dragged Kate and David out in front for a few more quick photos before the party ended.  This was such a fun party at a really unique spot with some awesome folks.  Thanks for asking me to shoot!

A few of my homies stopped by on Halloween.  They all had pretty damn good costumes so I rolled down the seamless backdrop, turned on a couple lights and stuck those costumed people in front of the immortalization machine.

Chris Hefner (the fellow pictured below),  is in the pre-production phase of his new feature film, The Poisoner.  We built this  paper…..well… plywood, really… moon and set it up as a sort of photo booth at The Everleigh Social Club during a fundraising event for the film’s budget.  Check out a more robust selection of the photos here:  http://rkarlic-moon.tumblr.com/
