For those of your who are having full blown, post-Reflektor withdrawal, there’s good news. This Thursday, DJ Windows 98, better known as Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler, is playing a two-hour vinyl set with live percussion at Le Poisson Rouge in the West Village. This is a huge opportunity to see Butler show off some of his lesser-known talents in an intimate space (and witness his ungodly height in person). Plus, Chrome Sparks opens with a DJ set – pretty cool Thursday, if you ask me.

Awwwww yeah, BEMF is back! And this year’s festival will take place November 6-7 at various venues across Williamsburg.

You might remember our interview with the Nickelodeon loving, tattoo covered, smooth talking singer/producer Luis Dubuc, a dude who left his hometown of Dallas, TX in search of a dream and never looked back. Well, this year has proved to young artists, who goes by the stage name Mystery Skulls, that taking a risk can pay off. Following a US tour alongside electro-funk duo Cherub, numerous European dates and the release of a hit single featuring Nile Rodgers and Brandy, Mystery Skulls is coming back to NYC, and this time he’s playing Baby’s All Right! Don’t miss your chance to see him in an intimate setting this Friday, as he’s unlikely to play these kinds of venues for much longer. You can get tickets HERE.
