If you’re new to the transcendent wonderfulness of Patton Oswalt, congratulations on finally making it out of your basement prison bunker, and please remember to wear dark glasses until your eyes adjust to the sun. Oswalt first sprung into mainstream consciousness in 2007 as the voice of Remy, the gourmet rat in the Pixar film Ratatouille. But stand-up comedy fans have known about his particular brand of hilariously candid philosophizing, on subjects ranging ... Read More
Marina Abramović  is a force of nature; Her grueling performances have established her as one of the major female artists of our time. Most recently, her piece The Artist is Present, involved sitting in the MoMA for 736 hours, not moving, while spectators were allowed to sit and stare at her for as long as they liked.  Her latest work, an autobiographical performance piece titled The Life and Death of Marina Abramović,  is an avant-garde ...

At the NY premiere of Beth B's latest documentary, EXPOSED–which pulls back the curtain on the NYC Burlesque scene–there was a touching moment during the Q+A that followed the screening: A young audience member revealed that she had grown up in a very closed-minded family, and wept as she thanked the performers for their bravery. This was just one of the many  moments that made me realize that this special movie--which discusses sexuality, letting ... Read More

Legendary NY filmmaker Beth B is best known for her underground No Wave films of the 70’s and 80s and is considered to be one of the main progenitors of the Cinema of Transgression movement.

She explores eight of the major players and their passion for the art in her new documentary, Exposed. Some of our most ... Read More
It was a sad and shocking Sunday when the word got out that Lou Reed had passed away. There’s no denying the profound influence that his songs and persona had on hundreds of thousands of  bands, artists and freaks who wanted to move to New York City, soak up any cool that was left, do drugs, and make the scene. The Velvet Underground will always be known as the band with the least amount of commercial success who inspired the most malcontents to pick up ... Read More
Goldfrapp's latest, Tales of Us, (out tomorrow on Mute) is their sixth LP, and is somewhat a return to form for the British duo. Its slow, luxurious feel has more in common with the velvety soundscapes of Felt Mountain and Seventh Tree, which is great news for those of us who didn’t love the ’80s aerobics class vibes of 2010’s Head First. Nine of the 10 songs assembled here are named for a person, with each one telling its own suspenseful story. ... Read More

The album will be available in stores September 10th.  Get More: Janelle ... Read More

 We love Iggy Pop, and the video promos that he's been making for the brand new Stooges album, Ready to Die, are really cute.  In this one, the adorable 66 year old visits 3 psychics and they all predict his success, with one who gets specific and tells him he will live to be 93. Sounds about right, considering he's young at heart, and keeps in shape by bouncing around on stage, practicing Qi Gong and swimming. Iggy is a kind and sweet guy, and ... Read More
