Governor Cuomo, that shady huckster who caucuses with Republicans and terminates corruption investigations when they get too close for comfort, decided to shut down the L train last night so he could take a little tour. Sure, he’s done nothing to improve service since he’s been in office, opting instead to pass the blame to […]
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 […]
And you thought L Train riders were having all the fun. The G train is about to start sucking even more next month with extended service disruptions planned for December and next March. The Greenpoint Av. G-train station will see a series of service disruptions and closures over the coming months as part of the […]
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.

The L Train Coalition has shared the date, which was communicated to them by a staff member of Councilmember Stephen Levin. Are you ready for the L-Apocalypse?! It’s coming in 179 days! The shutdown date will be Saturday, April 27th, 2019. Friday April 26th, 2019 will be the last day of service. Gothamist reports that the […]
It’s Halloween weekend, and that means there’s more metal records and shows than you can shake a King-Size Kit Kat at. I mostly find myself wishing metal would be more off-brand than on it these days, but today I’m willing to make an exception.
