BOT Year In Review: Café Con Leche’s Favorite Photos 2010

4:15 am by


This was my first year with BOT. After an awesome show at the end of March, HashBrowns invited me to write a review and post a couple of the photos I took that night. I was already telling everyone that came close to me about the show, so I decided to write it out and share it with everybody else who cared to read it. That was my first step as Café Con Leche, and from there, it’s just gotten better.

I took a lot of pictures this year – probably somewhere near the one hundred and fifty thousand range, give or take a few. Because of that, I came up with several that I’ve grown a bit more attached to than others. Over the next few weeks, the BOT staff will be posting a host of year-end lists and reviews, so I thought I’d start it all off with a healthy look at the past year in photos. I’ve been fortunate enough to photograph some amazing bands, and the results are a grandiose caché of visual evidence.

Shilpa Ray – “Good Time Girl”

4:31 am by

Somehow, the main artist profiled in this excellent Grinderman road diary isn’t Nick Cave – it’s Shilpa Ray. Reading about all of the praise showered on her by Nick Cave and others led me to seek out her music, and it certainly merits the acclaim. Shilpa has been playing the harmonium since the age of 6 and was born with a voice that can overpower even the most raucous output from her squeezebox. Check out some of her solo stuff on teh Youtubes, then stream a performance over at Daytrotter by her band: Shilpa Ray and the Happy Hookers. They are set to perform at Fitzgerald’s on April 20th with Acid Mothers Temple, see you there.
