Master UK beat architect Gold Panda [ 金大熊猫 ] came out ON HIS BIRTHDAY Monday night to send into blissful oblivion those in attendence at Glasslands. And I dare say, it was one of the tightest, mostly perfectly-crafted sets I’ve seen. Ever. All Essex-accent and smiles after the show, Freewilly caught up ‘Derwin Panda’ and […]
We’re not entirely sure what’s going on here, but it does revisit the matter in a new light.
Hard to argue with that. If you get the chance to slip away from Labyrinth come get some of this at 4 Berry St next to McCarren.
In case you missed them on Gov. Island with Neon Indian (playing an invite-only[?] show tonight at The [email protected] Hall), Prefuse 73, and DOM; or their late show at Glasslands with The Samps… Then check out LA’s Nite Jewel TONIGHT at a free in-store at Other Music. 15 East 4th St, 8PM.

Chicago-based Maps & Atlases played a superb set at Mercury Lounge last night, with Cults and Laura Stevenson & The Cans opening (all will be together again at The Knitting Factory show tonight).

Tonight, if there are still tickets left, put down the styrofoam cups and head across from McCarren to the Animation Block Party at the Automotive High School, where starting at […]
The summer personified comes in the form of a FREE Seaport Music show tonight featuring Free Energy and Ms. Fuzzy Buzzy herself, Best Coast. – If the lightning storm doesn’t get too close, at least it looks like the rain has gone away today (and will probably come again another day, ie. all Sunday) so […]
While the Brooklyn hipster may be ever-associated with swilling the cheaper version of this medallion-winning brew, Pabst Brewing Co. (under new management) has begun selling a “fancy-pants” beer in China called 1844, which sells for 300 yuan ($45 US) per 720ml bottle. Pabst Brewmaster-Asia Alan Kornhauser claims the beer is aimed at China’s “Nouveau riche,” […]
SATURDAY 88 and Sunny has probably already brought half the ‘burg down to Coney Island for Siren Fest to see Surfer Blood and Harlem and many others. And that’s not a bad choice to be sure. But here are a few others in case you don’t feel like putting a stickpin in your peppermint tie […]
