After many years of listening to them, I finally got to see (and photograph) Chromatics for the first time on Monday evening at Brooklyn Steel. Their music was everything that I had hoped it would be: moody, dreamy, shimmering, beautiful. ✨ You can see my full set of photos on BrooklynVegan.com: bit.ly/ChromaticsBK1.

Holly Herndon debuted the live performance of her new album PROTO on Thursday at Pioneer Works in Brooklyn as part of the Red Bull Music Festival. It was quite stirring to hear her experimental music with the chorus of voices coming together over driving beats. You can view the full gallery of my photos on BrooklynVegan.com: bit.ly/ProtoRBMF.

Last night, I caught Tunde Olaniran, who opened for My Brightest Diamond at Rough Trade. I knew virtually nothing about Tunde beforehand, and I thoroughly enjoyed his performance. It hit all the right buttons. Felt like an amalgamation of everything I’ve been listening to lately, but in a unique way. Check him out!

I loved watching Shara Nova aka My Brightest Diamond peel away layers of her sequined boxer outfit as she bared her emotions to us tonight at Rough Trade. Her recent music has really grown on me and it was wonderful to see her live again. 💍🥊 (📷 for @weallwantsomeone) [UPDATE: full set is at bit.ly/MBDatRT] at Rough Trade NYC

Exquisite doesn’t even begin to describe Sunday night’s concert by FKA twigs at the Park Avenue Armory for the Red Bull Music Festival. She gave her all in a performance that combined strength, beauty, agility, innovation, sexiness...I had chills for almost two hours straight. I could swear, she even flexed some legit kung fu moves on us. We also got A$AP Rocky, who dropped in to do “Fukk Sleep” with her. I suspected I would love this show; I’m so happy I finally got to witness Twigs and her artistry in person. at Park Avenue Armory

Tierra Whack made her headlining debut in New York City on Friday night as part of the 2019 Red Bull Music Festival. She mentioned how cool it was to be performing in the Rainbow Room on the 65th floor of Rockefeller Center, like we were in the sky, which proved to be an apt comment as she swiftly navigated her way through sharp verses like a fighter pilot hitting her targets with precision, while zipping through the air. 🌈 (📷 for @weallwantsomeone) at Rainbow Room

Legendary Mavis Staples turns 80 this year and she started the celebration last night in grand fashion. She and an all-star lineup of friends played to a sold out Apollo Theater, where she first performed in 1956 with the Staple Singers. What a vibrant soul! I had an incredible time capturing some moments with my camera, and you can view the full set here: bit.ly/MavisApollo. (📷 for @brooklynvegan) at Apollo Theater

Night 4 out of 7 of Morrissey on Broadway. He may be reaching sexagenarian status in two weeks, but the man’s still got it. Now, do I try to find a ticket for Wednesday? 🤔 at Lunt-Fontanne Theatre

Sunday service with The Reverend Al Green at Radio City Music Hall was every bit as uplifting as I imagined it would be. Crossed a huge one off my concert bucket list tonight. His opener, The War and Treaty, a husband and wife duo, were also very entertaining. Love and Happiness, indeed. at Radio City Music Hall
