But once you get AWOL on the floor at a roller derby bout in Yonkers, all pleasantries are abandoned. She is likely to knock you onto your tailbone or to fly around you half a dozen times like you’re standing stationary. On this video AWOL received perfect blocking and one teammate was kind enough to smash an opposing player to the ground near the end of the jam.
The ladies are skating this Saturday, June 15 at EJ Murray Memorial in Yonkers, NY.
Melissa and I have traveled around the world and I’ve had a chance to shoot live music in Argentina, Iceland, and Ecuador. But this video features something a bit closer to home. The band is The Narrowbacks from Pearl River, New York. You can find more information about them at www.Narrowbacks.com. The band was playing at D&D’s Restaurant & Pub in New City, NY. D&D’s has long been a local favorite and regular acts are brought in on rotation.
The Narrowbacks will be playing this weekend on Sunday, June 9th so check out their website for more details.
Since World Winder just turned two we decided to feature a video about Hvar Island, the final place that we lived during fourteen months on the travel trail. Now that we are settling back into life in New York it is easy to forget some of the memories we created on the road with our fledgling website.
Today is World Winder’s second birthday so how about some funky music. The first time that I saw Dominga Petrona jamming on the streets in Buenos Aires I didn’t have my video camera. Melissa and I were seven months into our9 month journey through South America. Dominga Petrona had secured their usual corner spot in a bustling section of the Microcentro. I was on a grocery run for a meal that Melissa was concocting in our apartment in the San Telmo district but I still had to linger for a few songs. We were living as writers in Argentina and I was happy to meet another street band in this music-opolis.
This video contains footage from the next time I saw Dominga Petrona on the same corner. Our travel buddies Julie and Tim joined us in Buenos Aires for a musical themed weekof travel and sidetrips from Argentina‘s autonomous capital city. At the time of this vlog post the band is rocking on the streets of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. Follow this hard working traveling band.
