Despite hailing from rainy Seattle, Telekinesis brought some summery pop jams to The Echo.
Photos and words by Scott Sheff Telekinesis, the ongoing project led by the multi-instrumental talent of Seattle-native Michael Benjamin Learner, returned to The Echo for a night of indie power-pop rock, a couple of jokes and “the best front row ever.” With the drum kit set front-and-center, singer/songwriter/musician Lerner engaged fans with a lively performance behind drums, demonstrating an incredible talent and ability to keep the beat and simultaneously sing lead vocals. In addition to being a master of the drums, Lerner showcased his prowess at guitar as well, stepping out from behind the drums to [...]
Filed under: News , News Today, Oh Boy! Kevork Djansezian, Getty The good news is, the 55th Annual Grammy Awards may have scored their second-largest audience since 1993. The bad news is, the ratings were way down from last year, with 30% fewer people watching. The jury's still out on whether this is because the winners were all too predictable, or because viewers would rather watch Lena Dunham in the new episode of "Girls" [...]
Did You Hear? :: Miley Cyrus took to Twitter on Wednesday (January 2), defending Justin Bieber and calling for "some changes" to paparazzi behavior and laws following the death of a pap who was tailing what was thought to be a car driven by Bieber . "Paparazzi acting like fools makes it impossible for anyone to make safe choices." Sing it, sister. [ oceanUP ] :: It turns out the photographer was, in fact, following Bieber's white Ferrari. It's just that [...]
Score one for the good guys! Prosecutors did not file charges against Justin Bieber following a photographer's claim that the superstar kicked and punched him. On May 27 , Bieber had a run-in with a paparazzo after departing a theater with then-girlfriend Selena Gomez . The pap claimed Biebs assaulted him, but "investigators found no visible injuries, video or photographs to confirm the allegations by the photographer," according to the Associated Press . In addition, several witnesses denied seeing Bieber kick the man, and in fact only [...]
We already saw the photo of Kanye West grabbing a female photographer's camera after she asked him and Kim Kardashian about Kim's ex Reggie Bush . Based on that one photo, it didn't seem like anything but a run-of-the-mill paparazzi run-in. Now there's video of the encounter which confirms that. The clip was taken from the camera which Yeezy grabbed (and which the pap in question probably exchanged for a decent chunk of change). The photog can be heard asking, "Did you know Reggie is here having dinner?...Did you [...]
Ron Galella , America’s most famous paparazzi photographer, likes to say he owes his career to the U.S. Air Force. After studying art in high school, Galella was working with ceramics after graduation when the Korean War broke out in June 1950. Rather than being drafted for combat, he decided to enlist for an arts-related position in the Air Force. Though he’d never studied it before, Galella discovered photography to be the closest discipline to fine art. After the war, he pursued the medium academically, studying photojournalism at the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles, which [...]
Then, there are people like Icelandic singer Bjork, who you’d rather not meet in a well-lit international airport. No, she hasn’t throttled another member of the paparazzi as she’s done a couple times in the past. From what I’ve read, the beatdowns (one in Thailand in '96, the other in New Zealand a few years ago) were justifiable, but every time I think of them or come across their mention, the mental picture that comes to my mind is alternately comical and frightening. Personally, I find Bjork to be one of the more fascinating humans of [...]
Lady Gaga did not seem pleased with the warm welcome awaiting her when she arrived at Los Angeles' LAX airport on Monday (July 9). Dressed in her typical travel attire — a black bra, underwear, pantyhose and a leather jacket — the "Glitter And Grease" siren greeted the hoards of paparazzi by flashing the middle finger as she exited to her waiting ride. At least she was doing so with perfectly manicured nails. Check out the controversial pop star as she attempts to avoid the flashing cameras. Then tell [...]
In Praise of VICE: Japan’s Suicide Forest, Illegally Crossing the Border, and Stalking the Paparazzi
Justin Bieber - Fame A movie date turned into drama for Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez today (May 27). According to a report by Gossip Center , the couple were exiting Calabasas Commons theaters, when they were greeted by a swarm of snap happy paparazzi. One pap reportedly got "too close" to the Biebz and Gomez in his rush for photos, angering Bieber. While details are unclear, a source at the scene tells Gossip Center that an altercation between a heated Bieber and the pap ensued, resulting in the police being [...]
Smash Palace "Do It Again" The Paparazzi is the musical pseudonym of songwriter and rock auteur Erik Paparazzi, who has spent the better part of the past decade as a sideman with Cat Power's Dirty Delta Blues. His new record Rococo, recorded back in 2004, will finally see a release on March 16 thanks to Serious Business. Expect a lush and dreamy ride that harnesses the best moves of several purveyors of lost classics and lost weekends: Brian Wilson, Harry Nilsson, and Todd Rundgren.
Yet again , a nice new indiepop number from Faråker .
Lindsay Lohan just can't catch a break! The former superstar is being sued by a paparazzo who’s claiming that he was injured when he was struck by a car Lohan was in while she left a Hollywood night club. The paparazzo, Grigor Balyan , says he was hit by the car Lindsay’s assistant was driving on January 10, 2010. Balyan’s lawyer, Neil Steiner , says his client was treated for orthopedic and neurologic injuries and that all he wants is “reasonable compensation.” But it looks like [...]
I'm sure it's just a coincidence, and given the rising tensions between "News" International and the Guardian Media Group the long-lens pap snap of a Guardian columnist on Gordon's pages this morning isn't some sort of attempt at revenge. I'm sure Gordon thinks he's just invading the privacy of Konnie Huq, and the fact that Charlie Brooker is also violated at the same time is just - what would the phrase be? - collateral asshattery. -- Visit No Rock & Roll Fun to comment, complain and kvetch
