Exploring the Sights, the Sounds and the Stories of Charlottesville in the Modern Rock Era
Opening Friday April 5th, the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society is proud to present this unprecedented new exhibit showcasing the musicians, the music, the bands, the venues and the many unforgettable moments from the “golden age” of the live music scene in Charlottesville, Virginia, from the 1960s to the 2000s.
This historic exhibit was curated by Rich Tarbell and Coy Barefoot, and was inspired by Rich’s 2018 book of collected oral histories and photography, Regarding Charlottesville Music. The exhibit is a project of the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society, and was made possible thanks to a generous donation by Hunter Smith and the Champion Brewing Company of Charlottesville. The exhibit will be on display in City Space on the Downtown Mall through April 2019, after which it will be on long-term display at a new location to be announced later.
My new Wussy video shot with Brian Wimer debuted on Friday via the A.V. Club and it was quickly picked up by Paste Magazine as well. The video was shot in December in Croaker, Virginia near Williamsburg. Smithsonian Magazine recently ran an interesting feature article on the secret location. Here is our “cast and crew” photo and the video follows below:
I directed and edited this video with Brian Wimer. It is the title track from the new Sally Rose Band album “Gotta Be Gold” and we dusted an entire room with gold foil, glitter and confetti and sprinkled in some go-go dancers.
Last month I shot and recorded a video of Tim Barry playing “Solid Gone” off his new album “Lost & Rootless”. The piece was shot in the shed behind his house and the significance of the location is simply, that is where the album was actually recorded last winter. Also, here are some photos I took of Tim in concert playing earlier this week in Baltimore with his current tour mates Two Cow Garage opening the shows.
Last night I shot phase one of a video for a song on Lauren Hoffman’s new album to be released in early 2015. The song is called “Dragon” and yes, there will be fire as well as some other sexy surprises. Here is a quick shot of the band in front of the set we built for the shoot at IX Art Park.
I was flattered and thrilled when the good folks from one of my absolute favorite bands, Cincinnati’s finest, Wussy asked me to do a video for their new album “Attica!”. Today it is the first video released for that impeccable record which can be ordered via their label – Shake It Records.
This video was put together from the footage Brian WImer and I shot while spending a week on the road with Sons of Bill on their “Virginia Calling” tour. An Amoeba Films project that Brian directed and I edited. Ben Haslap contributed some additional footage from D.C. The song is the closing track on their album “Sirens”.
