It’s been a little bit over a week since Gothamist and DNAinfo were shut down by their unscrupulous owner, Joe Ricketts. Founders Jen Chung and Jake Dobkin have been conspicuously quiet about the abrupt closure, other than issuing a thank you email to their readers, which was widely criticized by fans of the sites. They were […]
And so the weary traveler stepped through the gates of list season and was greeted with a hot meal…and a knife in the back.
Well, it happened. We fell back an hour, and then winter showed up right on time to kick us in our taints. ‘Tis the season to be apathetic (because it’s cold outside, and raging in snow boots is a real struggle.) While there is that strong desire to stay inside, slug chamomile tea and ingest […]
Billionaire Trump supporter Joe Ricketts, who bought Gothamist back in March (he already owned DNAinfo) abruptly shut down both sites today. In a statement posted online, Ricketts claims that the sites were not economically successful (which seems dubious in the case of heavily-trafficked Gothamist.) Ricketts suspiciously shut both sites down after the editorial staff voted to […]
Since Halloween had us goin’ up on a Tuesday, I can only assume that most of you rolled into work like zombies today. If exhaustion alone didn’t have you dragging your feet like the undead, then the leftover costume make-up surely helped you achieve “the look”. Recovery is necessary, but it’s nothing that a good […]
Welcome to another Halloween edition of This One Goes to Eleven, where we’ll be more or less doing the same thing we do, week-in, week-out from January to January. But hey, if that’s what got you in the door today, that’s cool with me. Let the (sonic) terrors reign.

The Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival, better known as BEMF, reigns supreme when it comes to bringing rare, international talent to the hood. This year was no different, with hot names like […]
No shortage of killer stuff to go around this week—especially from a couple of noted locals—so I’ll keep the stage banter brief this week. Can I get a little more Trenchgrinder in the monitor, please?
After an illness-related layoff last week, we are back with metal (and phlegm) aplenty, which seems like a fitting introduction to the bubbling grotesquery ahead. Happy Friday the 13th, everyone. WHAT TO HEAR: Batting lead off this week (it’s the MLB Playoffs!!…No? Anybody?) are long-running local trio Belus and their scathing new full length, Apophenia […]
Brooklyn will become a veritable playground for nightlife enthusiasts when the borough’s infamous BEMF celebrates its 10th Anniversary later this week. Starting Thursday, a slew of local and international talent, industry panels, curated stages and a “record fair” will make Williamsburg, Greenpoint, Bushwick and Gowanus a whole lot groovier. As always, the lineup touts an impressive […]
