Photos of the Dame Dash DIY Hideout Under 100
Somewhere downstairs Erykah Badu is covering Pavement. All photos of Under 100 by Rebecca Smeyne.
Brief recap, from yesterday: Under 100, the city's newest and potentially only Manhattan-based DIY showspace, just happens to be located in the basement of one Damon Dash, former Jay-Z partner and Roc-A-Fella mogul turned local indie-rock cheerleader. Confused? Here is promoter Greg Finch's thorough and not un-hilarious explanation. Photos of the subterranean concert space have been circulating for a few weeks now. But until last Thursday, when SOTC photographer and Rebecca Smeyne tagged along to a show in the building with the local power three-piece These Are Powers, nobody had been given free reign over the whole building. Who knew Dame rocked with Big Buck Hunter?
What? You've never seen a photo of Devin the Dude with These Are Powers and promoter Ariel Panero before?
These Are Powers, lost in the matrix
All World Star, all the time, apparently.
