Top 5 shows of the weekend

Happy National Pizza Day, everyone. Hope you’re all having a good snow day, unless of course you had to trek into the office anyway (like me) and also made reservations at Rubirosa weeks ago for tonight (like me), then sympathies all around. Anyway, despite the snow and the inevitable slush-show tomorrow, there are plenty of rewards for anyone braving the elements.

Top 5 shows of the weekend

fear-of-men-fall

I go away for a couple of weeks and look what happens… it’s like forgetting to lock your door but still being surprised when you find out all your stuff has been stolen. Between Brexit and Trump this year, you’d be forgiven if “the will of the people” merely leads you to the bottom of many a bottle. Alas, if for a couple of hours each night, you can try and forget reality with some great music.

a2597898925_10With October lumbering in the rear view like Leatherface with a chainsaw, we now turn our metallic attentions somewhat ambivalently toward the holiday season, where list-mas lurks just a few weeks off.

Greenpoint will soon have its own BMW-owned, tech-brotastic, start-up incubator / “world class” restaurant / asshat palace

A /D / O (nARCHITECTS / MINI)

As we reported last year, the space that used to host the Brooklyn Night Bazaar was purchased by BMW.  As details emerge about what BMW plans to do with the 23,000 square-foot warehouse, we’re beginning to think an automotive showroom would’ve been preferable. Reporters talked to the designer, Nate Pinsley, about the space and it sounds, well, just horrible. As DNA reports, its going to be called A/D/O — awkward shorthand  for the already-pretentious Amalgamated Drawing Office — and it will be a “place for design professionals to work, develop and play.” Ugh. You just know there’s going to be skateboard racks. Gothamist has more:

In fact, the BMW-owned MINI is building a 23,000 square-foot restaurant / retail design store / co-working space that the company hopes will become a “hotbed for future ideas and innovation.”
It’s called Amalgamated Drawing Office, which is “an homage to the team that designed the first MINI,” according to Nate Pinsley, ADO’s managing director. The warehouse’s renovations are being designed by nARCHITECTS and ADO is scheduled to open late this summer. [Read more…]
