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 Concentrating on better news, the city finally repealed the 91-year-old cabaret law so not only […]
If you’ve followed this site for the last few years you’ll know that we can’t sing the praises of Curtis Harding highly enough. I constantly describe him as the only contemporary soul artist who doesn’t sound derivative. After three years, he has a new album, Face Your Fear, coming out on the 27th of October via […]
We’re somehow halfway through September already. While the weather’s going to stay warm for a bit, get ready to start swapping your peaches for apples and get those cardigans on standby.
Well the week hasn’t had much of a bang at all, but we do get to end it with some great shows. I’m not going to beat around the bus today, you’ve got plans to make.

We return once again to our regular schedule after a weekend away to witness another regular occurrence, sporting heartache at the hands feet of my local team. Throw in a much lighter wallet coupled with some jetlag and it sounds like a bit of a waste of time, but much like music, you don’t get […]
Let’s start with some good news, Shea Stadium reached their kickstarter goal in just a few hours yesterday. Why stop there though, you can continue to donate here. The last few years have been more than hard for DIY venues but the rally of support yesterday was really quite something, and long may it continue. […]
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 […]
Seems a bit at odds that the same week as Martin Luther King day we get one of the most incompetent and divisive human beings in the country as our 45th president. But here we are. For those who don’t have the inclination or energy for politics this weekend, there are many excellent ways in […]
