As blue strobe lights flashed and the loud speakers played thrash music from an anonymous metal band, The Mountain Goats stepped onto the stage for their second of three sold out shows at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom. For the uninitiated, this incongruous introduction might prove alarming, but veteran fans will know that the band have made a tradition of introducing themselves in this ostentatious way. This hyperliterate indie rock band—which ... Read More

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:

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
