I don’t want to get into a whole thing on year-end list culture. About how it’s either a group-think circle jerk or a navel-gazing troll job. About how it’s become more about personal taste than critical analysis. About how there’s too much to listen to and too many people just looking to validate their own […]
It’s that time of year again when we all get stressed out about what to buy our loved ones. Thankfully, there are several markets and pop-ups coming your way to help make the season a little bit brighter (and hopefully less stressful).
Only three weekends before christmas, which seems stressful, so rather than waste your time shopping, hit up these events instead…
OK, in all likelihood this will be the last one of these this year. There will be a TOGTE year-end list of some form—and also FREEWilliamsburg’s top albums which I’ll contribute blurbs to—but this is probably it for semi-poetic waxing on new releases and weekly ticket link dumping until the first week of January or […]
We are crashing into December this weekend but here are some great options to start closing down 2018.
Now that the turkey coma has finally subsided, it’s time to work off those leftovers! Since we’re all so busy with the holidays and such, I’m going to just cut to the chase and include a collection of December shows you won’t want to miss. This is my way of helping you plan ahead, because […]
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I still feel full of turchetta, all the sides, and pie… but I’m thankful for that, and all the great shows that have happened this year, are happening this weekend, and will happen in the future. It’s a great time to be in New York with so many […]
Last one of these suckers before Thanksgiving, so drink it in like cheap Chardonnay and bring some new tunes home to mom. WHAT TO HEAR: Leading the way this week is Let Pain Be Your Guide (Gilead Media), the debut “full-length” from emotive Texas hardcore outfit Portrayal of Guilt. Weaponizing frustration and disillusionment, Let Pain […]
Here come the holidays! Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and before you know it, Christmas and Hanukkah will bring gifts and good cheer… and a decent level of stress, if we’re going to be honest about it. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good excuse to pig out and nap continuously, but the […]
Next month, swing by Villian at 307 Kent Ave. in Williamsburg. Vice and the people behind Smorgasburg will be hosting an indoor food market with a full bar and DJs each Friday through December. The Night Market will be a more experiential affair at Vice’s Williamsburg venue Villain, with Smorgasburg co-founders Eric Demby and Jonathan […]
