Toxic land isn’t funny. G train shuttle buses aren’t funny. Old Polish men drunk in McGolrick park first thing in the morning aren’t funny (except when they’re hilarious). BUT! Eugene Mirman and Todd Barry are definitely funny. Tonight they’re appearing at What’s So Funny About Greenpoint?, a comedy show benefitting the Greenpoint Business Alliance. The […]

The junkies in Williamsburg will have to wait longer, or maybe clean up their act and get a job. Okay, the job part might be crazy, it is Williamsburg. The NYPD announced today they have shut down the drug-ring which investigators claim ran the North Williamsburg heroin game. After a four month long sting officers […]
Brooklyn’s Mon Khmer recently released their dreamy Birthplace, an EP which fuses a multitude of influences from jazz, to classical, to country, and they’ve become the soundtrack to many a night in my cold apartment– lights dimmed, hot tea in hand. The title track and first single, “Birthplace” builds off of a tribal beat indigenous […]

Sam Mickens brought his new performance piece titled “Kayfabe: Game of Death” to Death by Audio last Saturday and Sunday. Below is a recording of Saturday’s premiere. .
In the frustrating yet delightful new comedy, Morning Glory, the most important relationships are underdeveloped, romantic relationships aren’t developed at all, intelligence is treated as an irritating quirk, every storyline is wrapped up in a dialogue-free montage during the movie’s final moments, and Rachel McAdams is absolutely charming. She’s Becky Fuller, a clumsy, perky go-getter […]
You guys have all figured out that I may have a bit of a girl crush on Williamsburg-by-Copenhagen’s Oh Land by now. This little love affair started when we booked her to play our Northside Festival showcase, after which we played NYC Taper’s recordings over and over. But now, with an EP floating around, props […]
