New Yorkers are truly spoiled. I grew up in a small town in Kentucky, where Applebee’s, Wal-Mart and an off-hours parking garage were the hottest spots to hit on Friday night. And you know Good Shepherd Church was LIT on Sundays. My how moving to the Big Apple has expanded my options! In addition to […]
Now I know you’re still trudging through that 4th of July hangover, but it’s summertime in Brooklyn, and THE SHOW MUST GO ON!
I’ve heard quite a few friends say that they are “boycotting” Fourth of July this year. That orange-faced assclown will have most of us second guessing our lackluster patriotism as we drink shitty domestic beer and dine on nitrate-laced meats this weekend. At least the “holiday” falls on a boring old Tuesday this time around […]
Did you know that today is the 2017 Summer Solstice? That means it’s totally acceptable to push those late night boundaries to the next level. It’s what the sun would want, after all. Now that the summer season is officially underway, it’s time to start amping up your party schedule, and the weekend’s upcoming NYC […]
I hope you’ve got your AC running, because this week is HOT! It’s hot outside. It’s hot in your poorly ventilated, ancient apartment building.

For the first time in a month, I actually get to spend a weekend at home, and oh what a wonderful weekend it is to be here in NYC! No doubt all you rock lovers will be spending the next four days in McCarren Park soaking up the sweet sights and sounds of Northside Festival. […]
Intimate crowds. Squeaky clean port-a-potties. Cheap craft beer. Minimal security checkpoints. Underground headliners. Functional pirate ships. If these concepts are unfamiliar to you, it’s because you’ve been wasting time at the wrong music festivals.
Just coming off Elements Arts & Music Festival, I’m now officially primed for the sweet ass summer that lies ahead. After spending three magical days in Lakewood, PA with the BangOn!NYC crew, I’ve been reminded of what a wonderful part of the world in which we choose to party. Not only do we have amazing […]
Memorial Day Weekend is on the horizon. That means parties, parties and more parties. Thankfully, Brooklyn is offering some consolation prizes for those of us who can’t pack up and head out to multi-day blowouts like BangOn!NYC‘s inaugural Elements Music & Arts Festival in Lakewood, PA. (And for those of you who are going: SEE YOU THERE!)
Donald Trump just released classified intelligence to Russia. So what if doomsday is right around the corner? It’s not going to stop us from having a good time before everything is blown to smithereens! Okay, that was morbid. But seriously, if it weren’t for all of these amazing shows to keep me distracted, I might […]
