SHOT: Fidlar

LA skate punks FIDLAR were in New York last week with their good buddies from Wavves for two wild ass shows at a couple of our favorite venues, Glasslands and Shea Stadium. The My Social List team was able to lure them over to the speak easy at Webster Hall in the midst of their Rolling Stone-documented romp across Brooklyn and Manhattan with the promise of free drinks, but little did they know they’d end up splitting an entire bottle of liquor and a twelver with our host, Kristina Tequila.

Savages – “Shut Up”

Glasslands Offers Summer Pass For Shows (Including FREE Drinks)

From our friends over at Glasslands:

Kick back and picture this Summer: the BBQs, the parks, the lemonade, the never-ending string of concerts, events, and parties.

Leave that last part to us. This limited-run season pass gets you:

– Entry into every Glasslands event this Summer, no matter what price, no matter how full, no funny business

– One free drink every time you stop by

That’s over 120 events, so bring a sleeping bag maybe and settle in for the long haul?

** Very limited run **

Looks like other season passes will be available in the future as well. Get yours here for the steep upfront cost of $225 — although when you do the math, this hip little card ultimately pays for itself if you’re looking to do a show or two a week through the season. Here’s hoping the Popgun boys can make some of that sweet new Williamsburg waterfront property money.

New Yeah Yeah Yeahs Video – ‘Sacrilege’

Joanna Newsom – “The North Star Grassman and the Ravens”

We’re still heartbroken that she married Adam Samberg, but this almost makes up for it:


The fans of Melissa Coker’s L.A.-based collection Wren aren’t limited to the West Coast, but when you’ve got California scenery like she does to draw on, it’d be a crime not to use it. So for her Fall ‘13 video, she packed up collaborators Sarah Sophie Flicker and Maxmilla Lukacs and headed to Malibu. “I love the contrast of the whimsy of the clothes with the ethereal setting of the mountains and outdoors,” Coker said. Whimsy is just the right word for the video’s star, the adored singer/songwriter and harpist Joanna Newsom. Newsom, harp in tow, performed a cover of Sandy Denny’s folksy, 1971 sea shanty “The North Star Grassman and the Ravens.” “Aesthetically, her songs are really inspiring to me—they’re really bold strokes that feel sort of theatrical and they’re interested in story,” Newsom said of Denny’s melancholy track and creative collaboration it inspired. “The fashion and design that I’m interested in also has to do with story, very strong statements that have some sort of narrative to them, that they aren’t just interested in the now.” Coker and co. invited to take a look at the shoot in progress; the video debuts early next year.
