ChristinaNoel Reaves (Founder, Creative Director, Choreographer) and Aeric Meredith-Goujon (Visualizer, Creative Consultant, Photographer/Videographer) of ChristinaNoel and the Creature.
Christina: “Every time we do Hoover Dam, it makes us create really unique things that we wouldn’t have created if we didn’t have the Hoover Dam Show. We end up using that work in other settings in our larger works, and we end up creating these really fun things. It seems to constantly be something that germinates really fresh ideas and excitement in us. The crowd is always open to experimental work and it’s also a party, I love it.”
Aeric: “Because theres a higher than average quotient of musicians in the crowd we can make good use of that and enlist them to help with improvs like providing a soundtrack, for instance.”
Neighborhoods of Residence: Christina – Crown Heights. Aeric – Boreum Hill.
Location of Shoot: In front of Crown Heights mural on Bergen between Classon and Grand. Mural by Mike Perry.
ChristinaNoel and the Creature will be headlining the Hoover Dam Collective presents “FallOut” in Prospect Heights on Saturday, September 27th. More info here.

Alex Mackinnon – Bandleader, The Whistleblowers
“The band is called the Whistleblowers. It’s inspired by my need to try to change all the fucked up things in this world in some small way. Some of my favorite artists are John Lennon, Fela Kuti, Rage Against The Machine – people that have spoken up for what they believe is right. Thats what led me to form this band.”
“We’re doing a very open set. I’m using the amazing musicians I have – basically I want to give them the freedom to express themselves in the maximum way by leaving a lot of room for them to improvise and for us to interact. This one is going to be a little bit of a departure; I’m busting out my computer and using some electronics, so I’m excited to see how that works.”
“I’m always excited to do a Hoover Dam show but this one is going to be a lot of fun especially because the space is really beautiful and I always like doing shows that are in my neighborhood!”
Neighborhood of residence: Crown Heights
Location of Shoot: Outside Calabar Imports on Franklin Avenue.
Alex’s band The Whistleblowers will be playing at The Hoover Dam Collective presents “FallOut” in Prospect Heights on Saturday, September 27th. More info here.

Nat Osborn: Bandleader, Songwriter/Singer and Keyboard Player in the Nat Osborn Band
“[Our music is] hard to describe but it’s somewhere between Stevie Wonder, Rufus Wainwright and Radiohead. Three piece horn section, solid rhythm section and some adventurous pop songs”
Relaxing in front of Little Zelda
“I’ve played in a ton of clubs over the past year but these kinds of shows are my favorite. There’s always a wild energy in the air because it’s more DIY and the crowd is filled with dancers, artists, musicians and people looking to have a memorable night.”
Nat is so amazingly photogenic!
Location of Shoot: Little Zelda, the most adorable coffee shop on Franklin Ave.
