WKND SHOUT OUT: KAP BAMBINO @ WEBSTER

by wichita stait While one of our favorite acts Sleigh Bells also played this show, they’ve gotten enough press to carry them through X-mas so I wanna focus my props on Kap Bambino for a moment. After a quick sampling of their myspace tracks and a few potent remixes from the blogosphere, I went in [...]

FISTFUL OF DOLLARS

by marisa brown Times are tough, we all know that. Still, that doesn’t mean you should sit alone on your couch every day staring at a wall and thinking of ways to turn your old socks into installation art (limit that to Thursdays only). And also, well, let’s be honest here: we already get a [...]

NINE INCH NAILS WAVE GOODBYE @ WEBSTER HALL

by marc evan | pics courtesy of marc evan’s iphone After just over 20 years of Nine Inch Nails, Trent Reznor has decided its time to retire. Tonight I witnessed… no, fuck it… I was a part of one of the greatest concert experiences of my life.  Nine Inch Nails performing at Webster Hall.  One [...]

CUT OFF YOUR HANDS & RA RA RIOT @ WEBSTER

by brittany bartley Saturday night’s show at Webster was very…youthful.  Doors opened at a bright and early 6pm, most likely to start things off with a bang and get all the kids back home before curfew.  I found myself surrounded on all sides by bright blue squares of light and fast little fingers texting messages [...]

LYKKE LI @ WEBSTER HALL

by felipe Despite an aching body and a tired mind, I got my gumption up to see Swedish pop star Lykke Li perform at Webster Hall last night. With only one full length album and a tiny bundle of EP’s under her belt, her live show remained a mystery. I wasn’t sure if I was [...]

BOWERY DOUBLE HEADER + ALTERNATIVES

Animal Collective will wrap up the second show of their NYC back-to-back tonight and the venue will host the Regina Spektor/Ra Ra Riot benefit for Planned Parenthood on Thursday. Since [...]

KAKI KING + MOUNTAIN GOATS THIS WEEKEND

by misky I used to pay rent for a room in Kaki King‘s old apartment at the Mckibbon Lofts in Bushwick. She was in Europe touring so it was me, a dangerously quiet tattoo artist, an effeminate actor dude prone to emotional outbursts, a tall Jewish graduate student guy who looked like Weird Al, and [...]

MGMT AND JUSTICE @ WEBSTER HALL

There were people all over 11th Street scalping, buying, teenage girls scouring for a chance to see the beautiful boys of MGMT. I was a little nervous walking into the concert last night that this band would be all hype and no [...]
