This is of course great news for vinyl lovers. Brooklyn Record Exchange will be operated by the label Mexican Summer who will also be opening a store in Greenpoint at 87 Guernsey Street. They have a soft launch this Thursday and are officially open for business on Saturday. The store will feature music from the […]
While the recent vote for New York Public Advocate didn’t go the way I hoped (I supported Rafael Espinal), at least we’re kicking and screaming into March. And though still dealing with winter conditions, there’s that ray of hope that this month starts signaling the end of winter. In the meantime, there are some excellent […]
Happy 2019! It has been a somewhat low-key start to the year in terms of shows but we’re back with a bang, though sadly including a farewell, this weekend. It finally got real cold, so wrap up warm and let these acts get your blood flowing.
