Happy start-of-the-world-cup day, everyone! With the tournament now underway in Russia (for whom Trump is presumably cheering), the time difference works in our favour to watch games and then still be free in the evening to hit up some concerts, which is handy because everything below the jump is an absolutely outstanding option.
Still processing the news that Chris Cornell died today, Soundgarden have always been a huge favourite. I’ll be in Lisbon this weekend on a much needed break but I’m still trying not to be disappointed at missing some of these.

So how’s he feel about his pending trip down a seriously polluted waterway? “Even if I grow a third arm I bet I […]
They are nimble little bastards, aren’t they? Just wanted to let you all kno, we’re working on a solution to combat these hustlers trying to sell us Air Jordans. In the meantime, keep your heads above water and try and ignore the spam.
Get out your hair gel, tube tops, and dolla billz. According to Gothamist last night giant spotlights were ‚”rented to herald the arrival of a new lounge called Alma on Roebling and South 3rd.” If you’re curious about what Alma has to offer there are velvet ropes,red carpets, the ability to book VIP birthdays, and […]
It smells like hope at one bodega on S. 2nd and Havemeyer. To shamelessly quote myself: “There they are, sandwiched as usual between ‚”Egyptian Musk” and ‚”White Diamond.” Obama Incense sticks, FTW.” Somebody please go grab a few and tell me what it smells like to be President!
