What makes you more of a hipster? The fact that you want the American Spirits, colored fixie bike chain, PBR, and shades set in the middle of this bear trap OR that you made an installation art piece in New York with all of these things inside a bear trap?
These are the days of our lives...

Before I went to the Wild Flag show at NYC's Radio City Musical Hall Wednesday night, I checked out the band's Facebook page. Because I "like" them. Not because I enjoy staring at pics of Carrie Brownstein every day or anything.
A post from the band read: "Hope Radio City is ready for the rough and the raw." Rough. Raw. Just how I like it. My giddiness jacked up to the 10,000th power.
Wild Flag's line-up is nothing short of astounding. Carrie Brownstein ... Read More

Full disclosure: prior to watching British band Esben and the Witch play at Manhattan's Mercury Lounge last Saturday, I hadn't listened to their entire full-length album, Violet Cries. (It released on Matador in February.) This is shameful for 2 reasons:
1. Goth is in my blood; My black, brooding blood. When Esben first released the single "Marching Song" in late 2010 I listened to it for two days straight. This obsessive cycle was only broken by Sisters of ... Read More

Vanessa over at Feministing put it better than I could: it's time to fucking rally. Between that bill that would make it legal for doctors to deny life-saving abortions for their patients or the one that will defund Planned Parenthood and other women's health clinics, it's time. If you're in NYC on February 26th, come down to Foley Square, across from the Court House in Lower Manhattan, and make your voice heard! RSVP on the Planned Parenthood NYC website ... Read More

How do you make a zine?
Why do you make a zine?
How did you get into zine-making in the first place?
What other zines do you read? Where can I get my zine photocopied? How are zines distributed? Where are zines reviewed? Where can you go to buy zines? How do you pronounce it? And how can I find out more? Be you a seasoned vet, a zi-curious newbie, or an unrelated browser in the right place at the right time, you're ... Read More

Missing Unicorn posters have gone up all over Manhattan and beyond, while a billboard promises a reward on 104th and Broadway. According to the signs, the mythical animal was last seen entering Central Park at West 72nd street, and the public is encouraged to call the sightings hot-line with any leads. Mimicking those photocopied fliers publicizing a lost pet, the posters are the brainchild of artist Camomile Hixon, who has invited the entire city to join the ... Read More
And to prove it, they have dedicated their third Book of Shadows all to us. With colors like the electric blue that is Radium, Psychedelic Sister’s pretty purple, and the whitish silver of Uzi (which is what I’m guessing you would see if you were actually shot by one), what’s not to love? I barely even wear makeup and I want this thing…just look at it! Who doesn’t secretly adore a pop-up book?That being said, you better hightail it ... Read More

It’s been a long scorcher of a summer and most of our brains have melted into a gelatinous goop that in just a few weeks we will be scraping off of the sizzling pavement to revive them for fall’s flutter. What better a way to send off the summer’s heat, and begin the quest for new, hopefully more functional, brains than a good old-fashioned game of Capture the Flag, zombie-style! This Saturday in NYC, August 14th NYCentric ... Read More
