BitGrid was my 2nd chip show in a three week tour. Luckily, my jet lag from shooting Overflow in Vancouver was helpful in keeping me alert until 5am when the show ended. I was really excited to see some of the artists I’ve met in the past 10 years as they came through NYC for local shows and festivals. I always considered myself extremely lucky to live in the city and have access to a number of international musicians. Stepping into the venue, I felt a tremendous amount of love and admiration as I was greeted warmly by strangers who were familiar with my work. I was extremely flattered and humbled by this and felt welcomed and at home. These strangers quickly felt like long time friends and it set the tone for a night that was incredibly nostalgic of previous festivals. Connecting with the European scene has been something I’ve wanted to do for a long time and I felt very honored to be invited to Belgium to document the night.

The venue was larger than I had expected with professional lighting. Huge LED panels were set up at the front of the stage that mirrored the visuals being projected behind the artists creating an effect of the musicians floating in space in a sea of pixels. The bar to the right of the stage kept the beer flowing as the bartenders seemed to truly enjoy the show. Before the show started, video games were set up outside the theater for fans to entertain themselves. It was a long night, with the first of 10 sets starting at 10pm. Maybe it was my jet lag but it didn’t feel like there was a dull moment.

I’m writing this as I’m crossing the Atlantic back home to NYC and I’m already missing this night and the energy. Europe- I will be back but for now…

This was my first trip to Canada and if you’ve never been there before everything you’ve heard about it is an understatement. The scenery is gorgeous, the people are friendly and the coffee is amazing. The way of life seems to be more thoughtful and peaceful and the people I met were quirky yet genuine. It was starting to rain when I arrived at the venue, Vancouver Art and Leisure. The room was mostly an open floor with a small stage at one end a bar along the wall with an open box of donuts from the local donut shop, Cartems. Sofas were placed around the edges of the room inviting anyone to take a break and relax while still enjoying the show. The ceiling had a solar sytem of disco balls ready to sprinkle light around the space and party. The room buzzed with energy as sound check had started and everyone was working together to troubleshoot the typical diy set up. Pretty soon the pieces of the puzzle fell into place and the lights dimmed revealing a neon light stage with the visual art projected on the back wall just above the stage. The open mic performers (Doomczar, Jewel Maiden, Matthew Graves) kicked off the night with one of the most curated open mics I’ve ever seen setting the tone for the rest of the night. The main show lineup included two artists that I’ve never seen before, Fastbom and Hitori Tori as well as two artists who I’ve had the pleasure of shooting in the past, bryface and Boaconstructor. The two visualists, BASE64 and Partlyhuman were also new to me making the night especially memorable. As much as I was fighting jet lag- I also didn’t want the night to end I’m truly excited to see how the Vancouver chip scene develops in the future.
