Since 2004, the blog BrooklynVegan has documented the music scene in New York (and beyond) in news updates, reviews and slide shows. On Thursday 16, concert photos originally featured on the site will be showcased in a larger format, and in high resolution, in “480 Pixels: An Exhibit of BrooklynVegan’s Music Photography.” The exhibit opens at 92YTribeca
with a performance by New Jersey punk trio Screaming Females. Curated by photographer and BV contributor Chris La Putt, the show displays the work of more than 20 shutterbugs, capturing musicians including the Decemberists
, Grace Jones, St. Vincent
. We asked a selection of the featured photographers to share the stories behind some of their most compelling images.
See it now! “480 Pixels: An Exhibit of BrooklynVegan’s Music Photography,” 92YTribeca, 200 Hudson St at Canal St (212-601-1000, 92ytribeca.org). Thu 16–Sept 6; free. Opening-night event: Thu 16 at 9pm; $12.
