Rock the Bells NY Concert Review

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

We hit up Rock the Bells this past weekend in NY, so what’s the report? This year’s edition of the Bells was a homage to the hip hop classic albums by Snoop Dogg, Wu-Tang, Tribe Called Quest, KRS-1, Slick Rick, Rakim, & Lauryn Hill. The lineup was certainly epic so after a late night we packed up the MINI Clubman and headed out of Montreal early Saturday morning. McD’s breakfast, a Rock the Bells iPod playlist, and 6 hours later we arrived at the Big Apple and headed straight for Pier 11 for the ferry ride to Governor’s Island. The crowds were already building when we reached the gate and Rakim was already on stage running the tail end of his classic ‘Paid in Full album’ with KRS-1 up next to do ‘Criminal Minded’. Both these albums were a little before my time so even though I knew them well a much needed siesta was more in the cards to be ready for my personal highlights….

EP + iPhone 4 in NYC

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

EP was in NYC this past weekend for Rock the Bells. The original plan was a quick getaway but we quickly slipped into the city’s abyss and stayed an extra night. Monday we stuck around the West Village and left the Canon 5D at the hotel instead packing our iPhone 4 with the amazing Hipstamatic app. Hipstamatic is like having a Lomo camera on your iPhone. With all the filters/lenses available, it allows you be creative with the simplest objects letting your concentrate on composition rather than technicals. Some of the choice shots after the jump…

Throwback Thursdays: Rock the Bells 2010

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

The Electric Pixel crew is road trippin’ this coming weekend to attend NYC’s must-see summer event, Rock the Bells. This year the greats will be performing albums they released in 1993. The 90’s was definitely the golden age of hip-hop and all the artists in Saturday’s lineup definitely contributed the memories. The icing on the cake though is definitely going to be the reemergence of Miss Lauryn Hill. We’ll have a full report on Monday
