COACHELLA: DAY 1

by Scott Iasillo Coachella is amongst us folks, and in my 4th year at the Indio, California festival I felt it was necessary to witness all three days of music and art (mainly because they only sold 3-day passes). With that said, here’s a breakdown of the artists I caught on day 1,  including the likes [...]

EMPIRE STATE OF MIND

by chris carpenter Alright.  Somebody has to talk about this.  I’m down.  If you happen to live in or around New York City, there’s an unavoidable force majeure with every passing car.  “IN NEWW YOOoooorkkkk.”  The frequency hits you full blast as the car is by your side, and drowns out as it zooms by.  [...]
