Leonard Cohen Ticket Giveaway

leonardcohen.jpgLeonard Cohen recently announced that he’s extending his 2009 world tour and will be returning this fall to play 15 more U.S. dates. He’ll be in New York City at MSG on October 23rd, and tickets will go on sale August 10. Fans will tell you that seeing the acclaimed singer/songwriter/poet perform is an unforgettable experience – but it also takes a toll on your wallet (tickets usually cost about $100 or more a piece).
Fortunately, AEG Live and FREEwilliamsburg are giving away a pair of the highly coveted tickets to one of our lucky Twitter followers (if you aren’t part of our crew yet, follow @freedubya here). Just send us a tweet or a RT with the hashtag #FreedubyaLC. We’ll randomly select a winner a week from today, on August 7. Good luck!

Jona Bechtolt of YACHT just tweeted that they need some audience members for a Pitchfork TV shoot at 6 in Brooklyn. Interested? Email him for the location.
Yacht’s new album See Mystery Lights just dropped on Tuesday (review), so we imagine this is for that.

Brooklyn kiddos collectively filmed, cut and produced a film about smaller Brooklyn kiddos:

In New York City’s changing Lower East Side, a group of older Puerto Rican women are brought together with a group of inner city youths to create an original play from the stories of their lives. Over a twenty-week period, the participants confront stereotypes and examine their own histories, exploring themes of immigration, relationships, coming of age and growing older. Woven together, their stories take on new meaning, first as they are spoken across generations, and later when they are performed in a sold-out show.

I am impressed 12 filmmakers with 12 visions can come together to produce one film and am ready to have my heart melt all over the place by the finished product. Last showing during the Latino Film Festival is tomorrow and tickets are here.

"I Got That Mother of Pearl Oyster Fork, Fo' Sure"


Simian Mobile Disco, you make me wanna stop being producitve and have a dance party on my bed. As if the video and Chris Keating’s (of Yeasayer fame) lyrics weren’t enough to get you moving, there’s always the reeeeeeeeemix. Yeah, that’s right I’m Funk Master Flex-ing it.
The new album, Temporary Pleasure, drops on August 18th and you should be excited. With special contributions from The Gossip’s magnetic Beth Ditto and Hot Chip’s fellow dance master Alexis Taylor, there’s a simple way to make your Pleasure a little more permanent– just press repeat.
Download “Audacity of Huge” (Naum Gabo Remix) here (you’re just a right click away) and get the fever.
