"Never Again" Photo Show in conjunction with Fest 2013
CBGB's may be gone, but it is certainly not forgotten. This October, in conjunction with Gotham Imaging and CBGB Fest 2013, The Wooster Street Social Club Gallery will be hosting a photography showcase that celebrates the places, people, and artists surrounding the New York music culture that has been lost in today's atmosphere of "progress". Featuring over 20+ active professional music photographers, this show will be the lexicon of the New York music scene, documenting the moments that can never be re-created, and continuing the tradition championed by music-photographers of the past-- creating new legacies of moments that might otherwise be overlooked.
The venue, the capacious Wooster Street Social Club, a 4000+ sq foot event space, art gallery, television set to TLC's hit tv show, NY INK, and tattoo studio is the perfect place to showcase the exhibition featuring New York's underground music scene in the form of iconic photography, due to its focus on merging art, culture, media, and entertainment.
The show will feature intimate and unique moments captured by Ryan Muir (SPIN, XXL, NPR, The Fader), Rebecca Smeyne (Village Voice, Paper Mag, SPIN, MTV Hive,) Guy Eppel (NME, Uncut UK), Chris La Putt (BrooklynVegan PDN), Gabi Porter, Jen Maler, Amanda Hatfield, Ebru Yildiz (Pitchfork, NPR), David Andrako (SPIN, Q Magazine), Kyle Dean Reinford (Billboard), Loren Wohl (MTV Hive, RCRDLBL), Jacob Blickenstaff (Mother Jones) Roger Kisby (The Fader), Jackie Roman (SPIN) Abbey Braden (‘Sup Mag), Kathryn Yu (Pitchfork, SPIN), Greg Cristman (Brooklynvegan, Invisible Oranges), Jessica Lehrman (The Source, Rolling Stone), Tod Seelie, Griffin Lotz (Rolling Stone), Sacha Lecca (Rolling Stone), Ernest Estime, Chad Kamenshine (The Artistree, SPIN), Dana (distortion) Yavin- (BrooklynVegan, Rolling Stone, SPIN), Jason Bergman.
The show will open on October 9th, the way only a New York show could- to a sidewalk party, from 7-10pm, complete with one of the city's finest food truck, a DJ in house, and of course, drinks. The Wooster Street Social Club will be open for business and the studio's talented artists will be tattooing, while the Club's Weekly Wooster event, Nail Pop, hosted by Lady Gaga's manicurist, Aya Fukada (NQ- Nail Queen) will be in full swing.
The exhibit will run from October 9th through November 1st. Given the edgy venue, talented artists, and the unforgettable subject, it is sure to be a show to remember.
