Jacquelyn Gallo, a performer/dancer in the rock band Juggernut (a costumed crew that includes female blood-wrestling and a "dancing nutsuck" -- in fact, that's their logo) has curated HOTSHOTS, a photography show "focusing on the theatrics and spectacle of live performance: six photographers journey where no lens is safe to bring you all the blood, guts and glitter of live rock 'n' roll."  PAPERMAG's resident action shooter Rebecca Smeyne will have about 10 prints on display, as will Tod Seelie, contributor to Spin and VICE's Noisey, Harriet Roberts of Brooklyn Vegan, Walter Wlodarczyk, Colin Michael Simmons, and Rosalie Knox.

The exhibit, at Dixon Place, is in conjunction with The Talking Band's rock musical, The Peripherals, premiering the following day. The opening reception will feature performances by the Jennifer Blowdryer Band and DJs Moonshine Shorey (Juggernut) and Sean Hanratty (NY Times music blogger and Santos Party House dude).  

HOTSHOTS Opening Reception, Wednesday, May 2nd, 9- 11 pm. The Gallery at Dixon Pl, 161A Chrystie St.  Show runs until June 2nd.
