Chairlift on tour!

BY Lisa in Music Stuff |

            Yeah, you've heard their ridiculously catchy tune 'Bruises' on that iPod commercial but seriously, this Brooklyn-based trio is so much more than that. I caught their show at the Williamsburg Music Hall awhile back when they opened for Yeasayer (LOVE!) and it says a lot when the first band draws as big a crowd as the headliner. Go catch them on their new tour that kicks off this week (click here for dates), especially ... Read More

In the mix

BY Dawn in Music Stuff |

While doing a little early Spring cleaning, i unearthed 3 converse shoeboxes of old mixtapes. Some probably haven't been listened to in over 10 years. Most are covered with various stickers, magazine cut outs, and sparkley nail polish. A lot are from ex boyfriends and bff's, (so bittersweetly nostaligic), one was a homemade demo from my very shortlived surf rock band, The Shortwaves (fact!), and others were random mixes I made for trips and specific bus rides. I ... Read More

Leave m' Lily Alone!

BY Susan in Music Stuff |

Last Tuesday night I went to see Lily Allen at the Bowery Ballroom with Matt and Kim and it was such an awesome show. Except for the people...When miss L.A. got on stage she was super cute (as usual) but when she took a swig from a glass of what could have been water or soda, everyone in the audience was shouting 'Yeah Lily! Way to go!' and other encouraging words for her to 'drink' even though she has apparently quit drinking and drugs entirely. It was pretty ... Read More
