If you’re a Madonna fan and live in New York, you must head over to Milk Studios to see an exhibit of amazing photos of the Material Girl circa 1983 taken by photographer Richard Corman.  The pictures capture a young Madonna in and around New York prior to her status as a global phenomenon.

As you see in these photos, even pre-stardom, Madonna had the “it factor” oozing out of her pores.

Most of these pictures have never been seen before and occasionally, I recognized a photo or two from what have become iconic photo sessions with Madonna.

Stephen Hindman of the Golden Filter and G.

On June 26, 2010 at the launch party for the Creators Project at Milk Studios in New York, I met the electronic duo The Golden Filter.  They have made many of my favorite remixes including “We Are The People” by Empire of the Sun, “New in Town” by Little Boots, “Lay It Down” by Peter Bjorn and John and their solo album “Voluspa,” which was released earlier this year, is pretty awesome as well.  They were doing a DJ set which I also enjoyed and as the Golden Filter took turns mixing, I met both Stephen Hindman and Penelope Trappes, and they were both really cool.  Thanks so much and looking forward to lots more great music!

On June 26, 2010 at the launch party for the Creators Project at Milk Studios in New York, I met Alan Palomo aka Neon Indian.  Neon Indian’s “Psychic Chasms” made a lot of critics best albums of 2009 list and it features the song “I Should Have Taken Acid With You,” which in my opinion is one of the best song titles of all time.  Neon Indian was super cool and I thank him for the great music and for being super cool!

Luke Jenner of The Rapture and G

On June 26, 2010 at the loading dock of Milk Studios in New York, the Rapture played a 40 minute set for the launch party for The Creators Project. It was my first exposure to their music and I loved what they heard.  The dance/punk band played “House of Jealous Lovers” and “Get Yourself Into It,” but did not play any tracks from their rumored 2010 summer release.  After they finished their awesome set, I met lead singer Luke Jenner of The Rapture and he was totally cool.  Thanks Luke.  You’ve turned me into a fan and I am looking forward to your next release.

An Encounter with Die Antwoord

Yo-Landi Vi$$er of Die Antwoord and G.

Moments after South African satirical rap group Die Antwoord made their New York debut, I met the band.  They played the Creators Project Launch party at New York’s Milk Studios and unfortunately, I was unable to attend the performance as I was off seeing Interpol in a different section of the building.  Die Antwoord is Afrikaans for “the answer.”  The answer to the question “how cool are they to fans” is “very cool.”  As you can see from the above photo, Yo-Landi Vi$$er of the group was amazingly cool and as you will see below, Watkin Tudor Jones aka Ninja was also extremely nice.

You might be wondering why Ninja was making this strange face in the photo?  I had taken the initial photo and he didn’t realize my camera had two flashes, so he moved and the first photo came out blurry.  When I explained that to him, he was truly horrified (as you can see in his expression) and he quickly corrected the situation.

I emplore you to check out Die Antwoord’s music because for lack of a better term, it’s totally rad!

Thanks again to Yo-Landi Vi$$er and Ninja for rockin’ and for being totally cool!
