Happy labour day weekend, everyone. Summer is officially ending and not a moment too soon given the weather this week… you can still hit a couple of outdoor shows, even head to the beach if you want, but I would personally like to welcome our hopefully less humid autumnal overlords.
Photo: Elrow in Ibiza, Spain It’s raining. It’s pouring. We’re stuck inside, and it’s BORING. Sure, this forecast is the pits, but it’s times like this that I’m reminded of the yins and yangs of life. After all, we wouldn’t know excitement if there was no calm, happiness if there was no sadness and sunshine […]
Your Thanksgiving travel playlist—presumably enough to get you to familial hell and back—starts here. Dig in, huddled metal masses.
Greetings! While certain events this week have painted a rather sombre reality on a time that usually brings the city together with so much fun and creativity, we have to press on and do our best with our time here. Concentrating on better news, the city finally repealed the 91-year-old cabaret law so not only […]
Greetings! It’s kinda July 4th weekend, I guess, even if that falls on a Tuesday. Maybe some of you are lucky enough to have Monday off as well. We aren’t just celebrating America in the coming days, either, our neighbours to the North have a fairly significant milestone. Regardless of what you even care about, […]
I hope you’ve got your AC running, because this week is HOT! It’s hot outside. It’s hot in your poorly ventilated, ancient apartment building.

Did your lofty bet on Always Dreaming pay off this weekend? Well, it’s time to trade in that real big hat and your Kentucky Derby winnings for club clothes and show tickets, because New York City is hopping this week. Set your sights on different tracks with these club sets where you’ve got nothing to […]
Yes, yes, May the Fourth Be With You and all that jazz, the real nerds know it’s also Cinco De Cuatro, and I’m also looking forward to seeing Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 (bonus nerd points to anyone who has seen and loved James Gunn’s earlier movies, Slither (extra extra points for seeing it at […]
Do you want to leave your house tonight but also feel pretty passionate about avoiding a run-in with NYC’s drunkest? Ya know, the green-adorned pub-goers who just can’t seem to leave their college days behind? They’re decorated with cheap plastic shamrock beads and leprechaun hats—perhaps a day as awful as Santacon in terms of public […]
So glad we got to spring forward into this glorious weather we’ve been having. If you want to avoid all the St Patrick’s Day nonsense (why people think this is any better than Santacon I don’t know…), here are a few chances to avoid people pretending to be Irish, leprachauns, or generally broing out.
