I still don't know what hit me, even two days after experiencing all that is a Quintron and Miss Pussycat show. The New Orleans-based art rockers (which essentially consists of a one-man band and a Maraca-playing backup singer) played Santos Party House, the NYC venue owned by previous BUST Boy du Jour, Andrew W.K. He was the host with the most Monday night, and did his best to hawk the $4 Budweiser specials to a packed house. Here he is, looking snazzy in what a ... Read More
 If you're in New York, you know it's that magical time of year. Yes, the CMJ Music Marathon has rolled into town and the city has turned into a 24/7 party of ear ecstasy! There are a million shows to go to this week, but be sure to check out the Fool's Gold Showcase tomorrow night at Bowery Ballroom at 10 pm.

Yes, it's true!  The Deal sisters and their current Breeders lineup dropped by Brooklyn yesterday afternoon to play McCarren Pool as part of the summer Pool Parties Series! The show was free.  And it was apparently the place to be.  The Olympic-sized pool accommodates thousands (and should be noted it is a veritable oven in the summer sun), but the line outside moved slowly and there were still folks who hadn't gotten in by the end of the set! ...
