There are approximately 5 bookstores in all of New York City, so we’re excited that Williamsburg is becoming a mecca for book readers. We already have Spoonbill & Sugartown and Book Thug Nation and we can now add McNally Jackson to the list. They opened over the weekend at 76 North 4th Street: After more than a decade as an independent […]
We’re still very sad that Rye is closing tomorrow. Now we’re learning that the classic diner Garden Grill is closing as well. According to Karasakalides, landlords Chris and Donna Siafakes — who are also the owners of iconic Greenpoint doughnut shop Peter Pan — haven’t given him a lease in five years, making it impossible to plan for the […]
We’re now two months into 2018, and, from a metal perspective at least, it’s been a good one, with almost as many records in the past eight weeks connecting with me as there did all of last year. Thankfully that theme continues today, thanks in large part to…
And just like that, another month is over. Time sure does fly when you’re eating solid food and partaking in alcohol again! Sober January was a time for introspection, but it was February which fostered appreciation. Sometimes you need to take a break from indulgences to understand their unique role in your life.

Woohoo! It’s a short work week! I was really scratching my head on Monday as to why we’re still celebrating President’s Day. After all, the one we have in office now is a total ass clown and the ones who founded the country thought it was cool to own people. It might be time to […]
TRENDING hardcore, CRAZY shows, and…figure skating? Yep, it’s another weird week here in Brooklyn Metaland. Let’s get to it.
Nothing pithy or illuminating to say this week, just more metal. Not that anyone’s complaining… WHAT TO HEAR: At the vanguard of this week’s releases are Harakiri For The Sky and their sweeping fourth full-length, Arson (Art of Propaganda). Widely regarded as one of the most redeemable post-black-metal acts in the infinite yawning maw of […]
The new ferry route will operate between North Williamsburg and 20th Street/Ave C (Stuyvesant Cove) in Manhattan. The MTA and DOT announced their plans for increased ferry service at a Community Board 1 presentation on Tuesday: during rush hours (which have yet to be defined), the plan is to run 8 boats per hour in […]
Love is in the air … or not. Let’s face it – Valentines Day is one of those holidays you either love, or love to hate. It’s totally okay to be one of the many New Yorkers who is still swiping left, waiting for that special someone. And if you there wasn’t a heart-shaped box of […]
It’s the dead fucking smackdab center cut of winter and we’re all hurting a bit on the inside (and probably outside too). But don’t worry, it’s a new week with new metal and This One Goes to Eleven is packing a few blunt implements to help knock the frost off. Let’s go.
