The Return of “Views from Rock Falcon with The Hold Steady”

File under better late than never – the remaining videos from my “Views from Rock Falcon” series documenting the recording of The Hold Steady’s sixth LP “Teeth Dreams” have been resurrected from some record company vault in Manhattan or somewhere. Here is the first new one to be posted and it is the band describing the album amongst some “behind the scenes” footage I shot in Nashville TN.

The Secret Storm

Wrapped up Day 2 of the Lauren Hoffman / The Secret Storm video shoot at IX Art Park by bringing in some lovely and talented people. Without giving away too much of the premise, fire-eating and breathing by Opal with burlesque performance by Deepa de Jour from Richmond VA. The album is still in the mixing process with a late Spring / early Summer release date to be determined.

The Replacements

Last weekend I was fortunate enough to be granted permission to shoot the The Replacements / Hold Steady / Deer Tick show in New York City at the Forest Hills Tennis Stadium. Although I got some good close-up shots from inside the security barrier at the front of the stage, the photo below is one of my favorites from the night just because of the sheer scale of it. The entire set of 33 photos can be found by clicking on my Flickr link.
