EL TEN ELEVEN IN NYC

by chuck bell Get ready to drop whatever you’re doing this Wednesday through Friday, because the best band you’ve never heard of are playing three dates in the NYC area.  El Ten Eleven, the two-man, instrumental post-rock group from Los Angeles, have gone unnoticed for too long.  What they lack in manpower, they more than [...]

QC MIXTAPE VOL. 42 (APR 19 – 25)

by bmac Pop Out Player I think winter finally gave up. Not only did we get a duo of sunny 90 degree days this weekend, but it looks like it’s going to stay nice and warm for the foreseeable future. Time to bust out the shades, shed the layers and make some festival plans for [...]

THE QC LIVE GUIDE: APRIL 22-28

by neil roberts Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about getting out. Getting out of New York, getting out of the life I’ve created for myself and starting a brand new one. Going on a trip for a long time by myself to re-imagine this life my mind thinks it’s living. Every morning I’ve started [...]

FRIDAY RAP FIX

by frances Like clockwork I start craving rap when the weekend rolls around. Sometimes the only cure for exhaustion is bass and poetry.

RATATAT LIVE IN PARIS

MP3 OF THE DAY: WEDNESDAY 7/2

by christos Ever since the amazing Ratatat remix of bjork’s masterpiece “wonderlust,” I have fallen back in love with them. What I like about this song is it doesn’t seem to sound like Ratatat at all – I mean don’t get me wrong, the basic vibe is there, but it’s always exciting to see a [...]

RATATAT – NEW BROOKLYN DATE ANNOUNCED

by kristen b Summer is upon us cityfolk. This is that time of year where I purge my ipod of all that depressing, I-want-to-hibernate-for-weeks crap, and load it up with all that is fun and loud.There’s nothing quite like strolling around Brooklyn neighborhoods in the summer dodging bikes and kids screaming for Mister Softee, gawking [...]
