David McDermott and Peter McGough outside The Back Room, NYC, Nov 2014
Mike Haar (@mikewillcutyou) hosts a monthly DJ night at The Back Room, and this one was extra special because David McDermott was visiting from Ireland and dropped by with his longtime artistic partner Peter McGough. If you aren't familiar with the legendary duo you must look up McDermott and McGough! Their history, philosophy, and work are fascinating. And if that wasn't enough excitement, my friend and I am Dandy book subject Barima Owusu-Nyantekyi was visiting from London. What a great meeting of worlds! I hope you enjoy my documentation of the evening.
