Sideshow Promo Images by Syd London

The inimitable Syd London took some photographs of Cheryl B. and me to use for Sideshow promotion. We shot in the East Village, right around the Phoenix bar where Sideshow is held, on 13th & Avenue A. Some of the shots near the end are actually right in front of the Phoenix, that dark red brick wall with the wrought iron bars on the windows, kind of gothic-looking. And Kristen makes an appearance at the end, as she is the semi-official Sideshow Hostess.

These shots were taken the same night as the last Sideshow, the butch/femme themed Pride show on June 9th, which Syd also photographed for Time Out New York, and which are now up on the TONY blog. They’re gorgeous, check ’em out!

Syd put a whole bunch of the best shots up on Flickr, shown here in a slideshow.

We haven’t finished choosing the images for our official promotional images yet. I’d love some help in picking out the best ones—Which are your favorites?

    The photos of you and Kristen are sweet.

    as for the ones for the show i like #P1850127, P1850179, P1850223 and P1850201 but that's just me.

  2. Fantastic shots! Kristen with the sunglasses and the pink vespa has got to be the cutest picture ever. Adorable.

    I really like #1850201. The lighting and color is beautiful and sexy plus you both look great.

    Love the shots with the red door in the back. Simple, bold colors are great attention grabbers on posters and things. The red wall of the Phoenix is also a nice backdrop.

    I love any of the pics with the red brick wall background. Awesome.

  6. I really like 1850174, 1850201 and 1850214.

    And I’m kind of coveting Kristen’s dress. And that pink bike. <3
