    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 bag!...

When I went to see Dali: Painting and Film at MoMA last year, I was fascinated by an animated short film that Dali collaborated with Walt Disney to create. It was called Destino and was a 7 minute long love story of Chronos and his ill-fated longing for a mortal female. While Dali started working on storyboards in 1945, the studios' financial woes from World War Two put the project on hold indefinitely. It was until the late 90s that Disney animators took on the...

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, whoa. ...
Maggie Heinze is a fairy-princess from Queens, NYC. She documents her excursions into sherbet-colored dimensions with sweeping line-work, obsessive stippling and liberal use of bubbles. She is currently lending her talents to help build and decorate a gypsy caravan made of found, industrial parts. A project headed located in the wilderness of Long Island and headed up by internationally recognized master printer, Dan Welden . Like any proper Irish fairy-princess, Maggie enjoys guzzling beer and recounting obscene stories. In life and in her work,...

Who doesn't love Fridays, right? And what better way to end the week than checking out a new band? In this case, it was Two White Horses at the Mercury Lounge, perfect for unwinding after a long work week. It's always nice to see a band that puts a little effort into their presentation onstage--coordinated outfits and all aren't entirely rare in the post-White Stripes era, but studied indifference is more the norm these days than a solemn approach to the stage with two matching white...
I don't know about any of you peeps, but I love the Fleet Foxes. Their self-titled album and Sun Giant EP are both great, plus they are fantastic live. If you haven't had the chance to see them, you totally should. They're playing at All Points West in about a month (along with Vampire Weekend, Ra Ra Riot and the Beastie Boys), plus a whole host of other tour dates including Chicago, Philly, DC and Toronto. If you get the chance you should definitely check...

You can also buys some Free Danger zines online too as well as at Cinders , Printed Matter and Dessert Island . It will be totally worth your while to stop by especially since...

The Georgia Theater, which hosted bands like REM and the B-52s in their early days, burned badly today. It was basically gutted by fire damage, though the building is still standing. It's located in the heart of downtown Athens, right near the University of Georgia campus. Back in their early days, the B-52s paid the venue to be allowed to play there. The first show after the theater opened in 1978 was Sea Level, which formed out of remnants of the Allman Brothers Band. After...
