TRENDING hardcore, CRAZY shows, and…figure skating? Yep, it’s another weird week here in Brooklyn Metaland. Let’s get to it.

I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend, survived valentine’s day, and is generally looking forward to making plans for Spring. After a couple more quiet weeks show-wise, we’re back with some fine choices.
It’s National Margarita Day and Bushwicks’s newest Mexican spot is celebrating with a charitable event to benefit Border Angels. From 4-6pm today, they’ll be serving up margs for $5. Then beginning at 6pm they will have a rotating selection of $10 signature margs from guest bartenders. More information at their Facebook page: La Loncheria, Brooklyn’s new modern […]
Woohoo! It’s a short work week! I was really scratching my head on Monday as to why we’re still celebrating President’s Day. After all, the one we have in office now is a total ass clown and the ones who founded the country thought it was cool to own people. It might be time to […]
