And so I went to go see my friends band, Funk Monk, play at Nublu last night. Nublu is this really cool club in the East Village where Brazilian Girls, Kudu, Forro in the Dark, Love Trio, Wax Poetics, Nublu Orchestra conducted by Butch Morris, The Real Live Show, ElodieO, Karina and a host of other bands and musicians have played at. They are an artists collective. And it seems as if I have been going to this place every so often over the years to listen to their music. And this excursion to listen to my friends band presented yet another great opportunity for me to get my camera out of the closet and play with it once again, as it seems as if the only purpose that it serves these days is to collect dust. And I set the alarm clock to stay awake for when they started playing, as club hour in this town seems to start at midnight, when most people are going to sleep, I think. And so I took photos and videos of the band in my latest experiment with this camera. One can see by the photo above and by the Funk Monk at NUBLU Video on my YouTube page, that these are the results. And Welf's really cool electric synthesizer sounds on his horn rocked that night. Nublu Rocks. Long Live The Lower East Side.
