I was a big fan of Molly Burch‘s 2017 debut album, Please Be Mine, calling it an effortlessly smooth collection of ten tracks. Her follow-up, First Flower, is out this Friday (the 5th) again via Captured Tracks. The record is as impeccable and immaculate as her debut, but there is so much more confidence in the material that really […]
The Brooklyn Horror Film Festival returns this year from October 11th – 18th with screenings at Nitehawk Cinema, Syndicated, LIU Kumble Theatre, Videology, and the Wythe Hotel Cinema. This year they’re once again presenting a slew of locally-made shorts, this time called Home Invasion. The following films are all from Williamsburg residents. THE INVADERS – […]

For the 10-year milestone, BEMF has joined forced with Mixmag, Camp David and various local promoters to bring some of the scene’s most eclectic acts to our fair borough.

No beating around the bush this week, here are the best shows of the weekend!
It’s a new season in New York – one of my favorites, in fact. Who doesn’t love fall in Brooklyn? It’s the perfect time to pig out on pumpkin flavored everything and snuggle up in chunky sweaters. Everyone seems to be brushing up on their baking skills, and friends are super down to meet for […]
Welcome to the first weekend of fall, folks. I’d tell you to get out the seance candles and inverted crucifixes, both those are year-round decorations around these parts.
Stuart Cinema & Cafe opened at 79 West Street earlier this month. It’s operated by Emelyn Stuart who runs The Ocktober Film Festival.
