Gnocchi del 29 is a culinary and art event around the 29th of each month to build community and celebrate abundance and prosperity, partially by eating a shitload of homemade gnocchi made by the host, Patricia Buraschi. The coming March Gnocchi del 29 is a collaboration with the Goddamn Cobras and featuring photographs by their […]
Wordless music that screams louder than Slayer’s “Angel of Death”. Controlled Bleeding and Zilmrah live at the Silent Barn last night.
Agalloch was at (Le) Poisson Rouge last night. Below is the first song (“Into the Painted Grey”) from their sold out show. After doors were opened, people ran to the front row like it was a Metallica show. THIS I have not seen in quite a while!
This past Friday I had the pleasure of attending the sold out Jeff Buckley Tribute Show at The Knitting Factory which was curated by legendary guitarist Gary Lucas. This was a benefit for Road Recovery, a charity for helping young people battle addiction. The bands he hand-picked for this intimate evening were wide-ranging to say […]

Williamsburg, meet the grand ol’ awesomeness that hit the Silent Barn like a growling tornado last night: Deathcrush and Altaar.
On their way to SxSW in Austin, TX, Norwegian drone-doomsters Altaar made a pit stop in Brooklyn at The Acheron last night. Fellow Norwegians Deathcrush in tow, the two bands will make another appearance at the Silent Barn in Queens tonight.
Ah, Northside Festival is all grown up and proved it with a very professional press event today at Bourough Hall. They even had Borough President Marty Markowitz there, who seem extra excited about the event. “There is a new sheriff in town,” Markowitz said, talking shit on SXSW before handing out pins that spelled out […]
Basically, if you’re not going to Good Co. every other Saturday, you’re not #winning. The Rude Dudes pump out hits to make your booty shake and enough dancing goes down that the glass doors of this fine establishment have no other option than to steam up. Permanent Vacation is just that kind of party, and […]
Melvin Van Peebles and his band, Laxative, played two sets at Zebulon last night, both were about an hour long. Below is a video montage of two songs (Chippin’ and Quittin’ Time), one from each set. Van Peebles is a man of the people, which he managed to prove last night. Without the slightest sign […]
