Amanda Lepore and G

Amanda Lepore is a fashion icon!  The transsexual icon has appeared in countless music videos, including her own, and is a popular subject of photographer David LaChapelle.  Moments after I met LaChapelle at an afterparty for his new exhibit, I met the fabulous Amanda Lepore.  Amanda was hosting her new weekly party Carnival on the top floor of New York’s Bowlmor Lanes.  If you haven’t been yet, you must go!  Under a circus tent – literally – there are performers, popcorn, prizes, cocktails, dancing and people dressed to the 9s, gay style!  It’s a blast!  The photo was taken by nightlife promoter, fashion designer, artist and hottie Joey Israel (more to come on his really great art coming soon – stay tuned).  Thanks Joey and thanks Amanda!  I had a wonderful time!

Shit! by Francesco Masci

If you are in the New York area and you want to see something fun and exciting, today is your lucky day!  gallery nine5 located at 24 Spring Street has some really cool and unique art on display right now.  The gallery boasts a mixed media presentation of coolness from neon installation to photography and collage, with a specialization in Aboriginal painting.  As you can see above, Franceso Masci’s work entitled “Shit!” is anything but!  Vivid colors, social commentary and stunning visual imagery are prevalent themes in his paintings.  Before I show you two more of my favorite works (but there are dozens of others that are just as cool), I’d like to thank Rebecca Speer at gallery nine5 for taking the time to speak with me and giving me background information about these artists who are taking the art world by storm.  This current exhibit runs through June 9, 2010, so don’t miss your chance to see these great works!

Scissor Sisters at the Bowery Ballroom (Night 1)

Jake Shears of the Scissor Sisters.

Words cannot express how much I love the Scissor Sisters.  Their live shows are guaranteed to make you get sweaty, shake your money maker and admire the gorgeousness of Jake Shears, Ana Matronic, Baby Daddy and of course, Del Marquis.  On March 17, 2010 at New York’s Bowery Ballroom, the Sisters made their 2010 live debut performing a handful of tracks from their upcoming 3rd album (which will be released in July).  The star-studded crowd featured Alan Cumming, Lou Reed (of the Velvet Underground), Amanda Lepore and Sandra Bernhard, who guested on stage during the song “Tits on the Radio.” If there’s enough interest, I’ll post videos I took of the new tracks.  I captured the first verse and chorus of each song, but the soundsystem at the venue was VERY loud, so the audio might not be so great.  If you are dying to know what the new tracks sounded like, all of them were fast and are sure to be club hits as soon as their new album is unleashed this summer.  In addition to playing hits like “I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’,” “Laura,” and their infamous disco cover of Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb,” the band played new tracks such as “Running Out,” “Night Life,” “Harder,” “Whole New Way,” “Any Which Way,” “Night Work,” “Something Like This,” “Numb” and “Invisible Lights.”  See a LOT more pictures of the band, Sandra Bernhard, Lou Reed, Amanda Lepore and the set list after the jump.
