Ashley Brooke Roberts, Comedian and Host Extraordinaire.
“I came into [doing Hoover Dam Shows] peripherally, back when shows were in this giant warehouse in Northern Greenpoint that you had to walk to for 20 minutes and I remember being like “ah, the kids are doing it for themselves!” I was really into the whole DIY spirit of the event and also that everyone was really supportive of all of the weird voices that came out.”
“It has always been fun. It’s never not been fun, which is hard to say about a lot of shows that I do. I usually leave feeling inspired.”
Neighborhood of Residence: Bushwick!
Location of Shoot: Corner of Franklin Ave and Sterling Place.
Ashley Brooke Roberts will be hosting Hoover Dam Collective presents “FallOut” in Prospect Heights on Saturday, September 27th. More information 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.
