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.

“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!

Theo Boguszewski, Founder of the Hoover Dam Collective


“I think the the HDC is a great example of young people coming together to create their own opportunities in a difficult and often isolating city. I love that the HDC is centered around community- we give artists the opportunity to network and form relationships with other artists.”
