Brian Butler and Jaime Salazar are exhibiting work at Swampspace on Friday. Brian recently worked with Spilt Milk Projects for the Look Alive Fest. Jaime’s worked with me in the past on different projects, including a photo shoot for Teepee (Miami, FL) and photographing Chan Marshall (Cat Power). Both guys are solid folks and deserve all of the positive energy this show will afford them. Not to be missed!

The Newsstand was always closed when I visited NYC. Finally got to see it on my last trip up there. Very cool place. Spilt Milk Projects would love to collaborate with them in the near future. Stay warm dudes.
4AD welcome Merchandise [x]
Couldn’t think of a better Florida band for 4AD. We had the pleasure of working with Merchandise for Art Basel 2012. Here’s hoping they come back soon.
On December 19th of last year, Ric Leichtung announced via Twitter that Maria Minerva’s performance at 285 Kent that night…
Seeing as how I’ve always felt at home in NYC’s music scene, I’m ringing in the new year at a show celebrating the end of one of the city’s best DIY venues, 285 Kent. Wolf Eyes is playing with a “special guest.” My guess, and it’s as good as any, is that it’s Black Dice. Their Chimes in Black Water series is classic.
Anyone else from Miami going? Let me know: email@example.com.
Thanks for all of the support in 2013. Look Alive Fest is off to a great start. Here’s hoping Miami gets weirder, and the rest of the country pays attention. See you soon.
