I was up til 7 am working on last night’s RiverRocks show with Austra and tUnE-yArDs, and I’m hoping tonight will not be the same.  Surprisingly I had enough energy to cover The Radio Dept. and Asobi Seksu today at the South Street Seaport.

Asobe Seksu.  What can I say?  I love photographing Yuki Chikudate and her constant hair whipping.  Her bone structure with strands of hair strewn across her sharp cheekbones made for some sensuous images.  Her lilting vocals mixed with James Hanna’s intense guitar work was the perfect opening for tonight’s showcase.

I am so glad I had the chance to catch Sweden’s The Radio Dept.  They kind of remind me of one of my two all-time favorite bands, Oxford’s Ride.  Johan Duncanson vocals were soft and dreamy, at times a smidge off key, making their songs imperfectly beautiful.  Yes, the shoe gazing was prevalent as well.  The Swedish three piece put on an amazing show for an extremely packed Seaport, but sadly without an encore.

The time is now 5:15 AM.  Two days in a row of all-nighters without the help of caffeine.  It’s now time to get some rest.

Good night…Or shall I say good morning???
