The screenplay for The Housemaid, a new thriller from South Korea, must have had audience reactions written in the margins. Because the narrative should be familiar to all of us, we react not because we don’t expect the film’s more violent and erotic moments, but because cues are being given to us. While watching the […]

Joan of Arc are a band unstuck in time. Not because of Tim Kinsella’s Suicidal Tendencies t-shirt, or Bobby Burg’s trucker hat, or the stack of cassette tapes on the merch table of all their old recordings. But, despite having been a band for the past 15 or so years, they have still not succumbed […]
You all remember the awesome Stadiums & Shrines — our partners in crime for the FREEwilliamsburg CMJ Showcase blowout at Glasslands this past summer. Well, the awesome music blog has partnered up with Neon Musical Insight to throw another perfect night of music, booze and dancing at Cameo Gallery tomorrow night! Luckily for all of […]

Ever go to a sweet show at Shea Stadium but (for some reason or other) the night seems a little hazy or forgetty in your memory? Or maybe you just want a copy of the performance on tape? Or you want to check out some bands you’ve heard buzz about on the internet? Well now […]
Are you trembling, Councilmember Eric Ulrich? Transportation Alternatives has asked its supporters to send you angry faxes, a result of your “draconian” bike bill wherein we have to wear license plates like scarlet letters on our bicycles. It’s kind of an asshole proposal on your end, bicyclists say, and for that, you’re about to get […]
Score one for cash-strapped zen-seekers: Yoga to the People celebrates the grand opening of the studio’s first Brooklyn location this weekend – and in doing so, it’s giving more expensive hot yoga practices off the Bedford stop a serious run for their money. Located on North 11th between Roebling and Driggs, the latest Yoga to […]
Nick Thorburn of Unicorns + Honus Honus of Man Man + Joe Plummer of Modest Mouse + George Michael Bluth. Already this equation is getting pretty out of control awesome. But then when you throw in them covering “Bad Man” by the Oblivians the math just gets wrecked. Who cares about math anyway?
