If you're in the mood for an evening featuring tasty vegan treats from Terry Hope Romero (it's the Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar dude!), music galore, a raffle supporting a worthy cause (the Sylvia Rivera Law Project), and DJs dishing beats for a night of endless dancing, then hey, Hartzveytik: A Heartbreak Survival Society Social might be for you.
On November 14th at Southpaw in Brooklyn, you have the chance to see acts such as Soft Power (with Mary ... Read More

Oh Julian Casablancas, I am so incredibly happy/giddy/gaga that you have decided to take a break from The Strokes and give your sexy drawl a space of its own.
Casablancas just released his first solo album last week and word on the street is that this new work, Phrazes For The Young, is pretty nifty. I've already listened to the first single, '11th Dimension' and yowzas, this song is my new obsession. I could never understand it when people could listen to a song ... Read More

Katie Stelmanis has the voice of an angel. Aside from having a Facebook fan page that says it in print, with hundreds of followers who agree, it's just true. It is. Katie and her band, which is Carmen Elle on guitar and back ground vocals, and Maya Postepski on drums, opened for Fucked Up at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple on Thursday and were able to turn a crowd of ruffians into instant new fans.
The setting for the show was dreamy in itself, as the Brooklyn ... Read More
Awesome magazines are folding left and right these days -- so when a new one that's totally rad gets off the ground, it's time for a celebration.

Featuring interviews with lady drummers and tips for honing your own technique, Tom Tom sounds like the perfect alternative to all those man-drenched guitar and drum ... Read More

Cute? Yes. That's obvious. But the best word to describe Slingshot Dakota goes deeper than what's on the surface: it's passionate. Passionate about doing what they love. Passionate about supporting their friends. Passionate about making a difference. Get the idea?
Sure, Slingshot can easily hook you in with their poppy tunes and adorableness. But there's so much more behind the blast of sound created by an amped up Yamaha keyboard, a deafeningly loud drum set, ... Read More

Garfunkel & Oats Are Music To Comedy Fans' Earsby Corrie PikulThe music video begins rather innocently: two pretty girls, a tall blonde with a guitar and a petite brunette with a ukulele, smile sweetly and sing an ode to blossoming romance. “And like can lead to like-like/And like-like can lead to looove,” they coo. “Sure as the stars above/I’d really like to fuck you, fuck you, fuck you.” Oh! But that’s as ... Read More

I'm a sucker for cool gals playing that good ol' indie folk rock so Mia Riddle's album, Tumble and Drag, gets a lotta play on my iTunes. Check her music out and if you're in NY, catch her and her band tomorrow night at one of my favorite Brooklyn venues, the Bell House. And if good jams weren't enough to bring you out, they'll be serving free Brooklyn lager from 7:30 - 8:30. Looks like Thursday night's in the ... Read More

I just ran across this while looking for summer songs. I know there is a bit of MJ overkill going on but this seriously gave me chills. Man, he could really belt it. It's the acapella version so there are some silent breaks but wait them out. Seriously, ... Read More
