CMJ Music Marathon kicks off in New York today, which means that from now until the wee hours of Saturday night (or Sunday morning, if you're doing it right), seemingly every band ever will be playing shows at over 80 venues across the city. (Check out the official CMJ 2012 schedule if you want to get excited and overwhelmed on a Jessie Spano-esque level.) We're hoping to catch some incredible lineups over the next few days and nights, and we're pleased to ... Read More

Originating in Mexico, the folk art involves making cuts in colored tissue paper and then stringing the designs into banners. It sounds simple, but the results are gloriously elaborate. Yreina Flores Ortiz, who owns the Etsy shop Ay Mujer, has put a modern take on her culture’s tradition by making banners you'll want ... Read More

The two new eps we watched at the party were packed with delightfully insane jokes, new characters (FYI, “We can pickle that!” is the new “Put a bird on it!”), and old pals like the aggressive bike messenger and feminist-bookstore owners. The blowout was held at ... Read More
