Amy Sedaris, one of our favorite comedians, makes a hilarious appearance in the latest episode of F to 7th, a "homoneurotic web series" from the mind of Ingrid Jungermann. Sedaris plays Kate, Ingrid's wildly inappropriate aunt. The episode, "Family" is full of cringe-worthy one-liners that Sedaris delivers with unapologetic gusto. Watching it, you want to crawl under the table on Jungermann's behalf, but feel compelled to keep your eyes glued to the train wreck of a lunch date.  F to 7th is Jungermann's second web series—she...

Last week, we shared a stream of her latest EP, Runner, and that night we went to her EP release show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, where her recorded material truly came to life.   Despite an insane NYC blizzard, the venue was pretty...
Nicole and Natalie Albino are twin sisters who make up the hip-hop duo Nina Sky. The Queens, NY natives have been making dope beats and spitting sick raps since 2004. You might remember their chart-topping reggaeton single “Move Ya Body” from way back when, but they’ve changed things up a bit since then. Their latest album Nicole & Natalie still holds strong to their R&B roots but sounds a bit more like Euro-dance-pop. This past Thursday, the ladies brought the party to 285 Kent, where...
