Sarah Blacker at the 2013 New England Americana Festival in Harvard Square

Back in September, dozens of bands got together to perform at the 2013 New England Americana Festival in Harvard Square. It was a superb two days of music. I filmed many of the outdoor performances. First up is Sarah Blacker performing “Shiver” from her new album Precious Little Things.

Photos: OldJack on the main stage at 33rd Annual Oktoberfest in Harvard Square

There are few things more awesome than making your way through Harvard Yard while hearing the old soul rock and roll sounds of OldJack hitting you from from Harvard Square. The band performed on the main stage at this year’s 33rd Annual Oktoberfest in Harvard Square.

Silver Performance Artist Statue in Harvard Square

I shot this photo in Harvard Square on Saturday of Epiphany, a performance artist who painted and dressed herself in silver. She moved whenever someone contributed money. She was a lot more interactive than most statue performance artists. To see the rest of the photos, check out the album on Flickr.

Today’s Photo: Flathead Without Potato

I haven’t been writing a lot of words on sooz.com lately — busy with client work and some other projects including Exploit Boston!. I’m going to start updating the site most days with a photo when the wordy entries don’t happen. You can always read my micro-tidbits over at twitter.com/sooz.

When I first moved to Boston, Flathead and his little dog Potato were regulars in Harvard Square. This was back in 1994-1998(ish) before the square started to transform into more of a mall. Remember The Tasty Diner and Wursthaus? Flathead (aka Ned) was back in town in September and October this year and it was a blast of fun nostalgia to run into him as I was walking back to Harvard Square after a late Tuesday night enjoying the music of Session Americana with friends at the Lizard Lounge. I stopped to say hi to Flathead and ask if I could take a few photos and noticed that Potato wasn’t there — he had died a few years ago.

Photos and video at HONK! Fest and Oktoberfest in Harvard Square

I’ve got three videos and a bunch of photos on Exploit Boston! from Sunday’s HONK! Fest and Oktoberfest in Harvard Square. They were expecting 100,000 people — not sure if there were that many but definitely a lot. Lots of people. And dogs. And street bands. Mostly just a lot of happy people enjoying a beautiful Fall day.

Here’s a 70 second clip of Titubanda from Rome performing at HONK! Fest. The full video is at Exploit Boston!.
