Damn, it’s hard to believe it’s the second to last release week in October, but here we are. Dig in, never let go, and, um, keep holding on to black metal?
I take every opportunity to wax lyrical about Chilean psych bands when they come to town, but sadly The Holydrug Couple‘s show at Public Arts on Friday was canceled as the band could not make it. Alas, hopefully there will be another opportunity to hear about how their most recent release, Hyper Super Mega is an excellent addition […]
I’m still playing metal catch-up after mostly unplugging last weekend. Take one day off this time of year, however, and you miss five AOTY contenders, so let’s get started.
And suddenly we’re hurtling towards mid-October. Whilst Halloween edges nearer, there’s nothing horrific about the quality of options bestowed upon you this weekend – although I won’t blame you if you just want to stay in and watch horror movies instead, ’tis the season!
I think it’s safe to say the last couple of weeks have been… charged. There’s a lot of reason for us to be frustrated. For one, the senate basically just said f*ck you to sexual assault survivors by giving a self-proclaimed spokesperson for beer in a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court. But honestly, I […]
When we were kids, Halloween was all about candy and costumes. Now that we’re adults, it’s a sick party we’re after. Now don’t get me wrong, I still love a good fun-size candy bar (which I swear have gotten considerably less fun-sized over the years, right?), but these days, those sickly sweet treats are best […]
Last weekend, The Brooklyn Mirage finally closed its doors for winter. But don’t be glum – wouldn’t you know, they’re just taking the party inside! Outside we’re starting to feel like brisk onset of fall, but you know the flaming hot beats of Swiss/South African DJ and Producer, Nora En Pure can melt ice. Our girl […]
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 – […]
It’s that time of year again! The Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival starts tonight, kicking off a four-day celebration of all things dance! 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. Of course, part of what makes BEMF […]
