HOT Rewind

L, O, & M and lsg

I have had a complete block lately when it comes to writing this blog.  So much has gone on over the last 3 weeks…including Super Storm Sandy, a nor’easter, oh!  And we have re-elected our President!  I think I’ll just go with pictures and photo galleries and hope I can get my act together for next week.

LONESOME, ON’RY & MEAN…I had the…pleasure? of being in the same room with all of them at a social occasion at Mr. Lonesome’s house.  Exactly what you’d expect if you’ve read their blog – except in 3D.  Join the group and follow the madness!

BURLESQUE, BURLESQUE, BURLESQUE!  At Café 9 in New Haven for Halloween (Cheers to Lipgloss Crisis!) and at Bon Appetite in Northampton for Spanksgiving (You rock, Hors D’oeuvres!)  Here are the pictures.  PS…Spanksgiving is NOT for the faint of heart!

HOT local video of the week…Mandrake Mechanism

http://www.facebook.com/MandrakeMechanism

Mandrake Mechanism is a fun band.  And they cross multiple genres in their style.  I’ve had the good fortune of seeing them perform multiple times and hanging out with them for kicks.  The uber personality of this band shines through in this video.  It’s a brand new release for them from their new album, “Monetary Artforms”.

Lisa Sanchez Gonzalez – lsg Original

Lover of music and the visual arts, Lisa Sanchez Gonzalez is the insanity behind lsg original photography. lsg specializes in artist and performer photography. She’s had the honor of photographing national bands such as Weezer, Snoop Dogg, A Simple Plan, Paramore, Whitesnake, Wye Oak, and The Antlers along with countless local bands and performers.

Hailing from Hartford, CT, Lisa is a life- long music connoisseur. Growing up, her mother exposed her to everything from The Stones to Simon and Garfunkel to Earth, Wind, and Fire to Loretta Lynn…and everything in between. No genre was left unexplored in her vinyl collection. She saw her first concert at 14…Rod Stewart at the (then called) Hartford Civic Center. Thirty years later, it’s still her favorite pastime.

Lisa has two kids (grown!) and a day job. Her loves of music and photography have melded into a second career. And her love of CT keeps her promoting and pushing for local artists and performers. Lisa spends the greater part of her free time seeing and shooting live bands, performers, and artists and art work…and purchasing vinyl!
