There are lots of amazing ways to celebrate Halloween in Brooklyn this year. We’ve already told you about the L Train Shutdown horror house and the Ridgewood Asylum. And don’t miss Videology’s closing party, a Suspira Costume party. Here are some of our other top picks. Check this space for updates! BangOn!NYC Presents: Warehouse of Horrors // Music […]
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?
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 […]
Well this sucks. The popular Williamsburg bar and cinema announced the sad news this morning on Facebook: After almost 15 amazing years, Videology will be closing its doors for the last time on October 27th. Bringing movies to Williamsburg, to Brooklyn, and to New York City, first as a DVD rental store, and then as […]
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.
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 […]
Sands cafe has temporarily closed after its owner, Guy Sands, was accused of being a white supremecist with ties to Milo Yiannopoulos and Proud Boys. The restaurant’s Yelp and Google reviews have been bombarded with accusations as well. The allegations date back to a Vanity Fair article about Yiannopoulos where Sands was quoted and a […]
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 […]
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 […]
Brooklyn was certainly alive this past Saturday. With nonstop jams out of Brooklyn Bowl, Rough Trade, and Music Hall of Williamsburg, Brooklyn Comes Alive’s fourth annual festival far exceeded expectations. Hosted by Live for Live Music, the one day event provides a platform for musicians from a variety of bands to join forces and create some real […]
