HOLLANDS: SING THE TALES YOU HAVE FORGOT

by joel chaffee When Hollands took the stage on Saturday night at Pete’s Candy Store in Williamsburg, a five-member crew seemed appropriate. What with the band’s two 2009 EP releases of a tight rhythm section, occasional strings (or synths) and bandleader John-Paul Norpoth’s power-chord/wicked lead guitar and sugary but wary vocals, five members seemed sufficient. [...]

BK VENUE REVIEW: DON PEDRO

by amy davis Don Pedro makes no apologies for being unlike your typical mod Williamsburg haunts. Gritty and loving it, this Brooklyn music venue/eatery fully embraces the well-worn characteristics that keep it hovering that thin line between the adjectives frequently describing it as rustic and downright dive-bar chic. No, no, no, this Old New York venue [...]

WILLIAMSBURG DESIGNER SOIREE TODAY

by sherm I was still shopping at The Gap until I met Jillian Lanier, the designer and maker of her own, off the wall, clothing line Thrills.

DEFIANCE, OHIO @ DEATH BY AUDIO

by john cole I never expected it to have been this crowded of a show. I obviously didn’t know what to expect. I was happy to see that the classiest beer in the place was a tall boy of Budweiser, while the rest of the commoners fashioned cans of P.B.R. and some oddly named beer [...]

CELEBRATION @ GLASSLANDS

by chris carpenter & neil roberts CC: I beefed up my hipster resume last night as I added “go to a Celebration/Fashion show at Glasslands under the influence of a class D substance.”  The event was the culmination of Williamsburg Fashion Weekend, with fashion shows by King Gurvy, SDN, Sodafine, and Treehouse dominating the first [...]

PASSION PIT @ GLASSLANDS

by eliza Ah, the Passion! Last night at Glasslands in Williamsburg was the much anticipated Passion Pit show. Who would have thought this would be one of the most coveted events on a Friday night in Brooklyn. It was sold out, and the list was tight. Luckily, QC had the hookup, and I was able [...]

WINE IS THICKER THAN BLOOD

by holy joe Combine cello bass lines, wild drums, rhythmic piano, and emotive vocals and you get a band that’s more underrated than a kiss on the cheek. Wine Is Thicker Than Blood has been playing the small show circuit around L.E.S. and Williamsburg attracting a base audience through impressive live sets. Their sound gives [...]
