So, last week we posted about Record Store Day , when indie music shops across the country hosted events and appearances by awesome artists. Well, that was last Saturday and while I wasn't able to go to any of the events, it looks like they were pretty fantastic. I was very upset that I couldn't go to Generation Records to see my favorite band, the Bouncing Souls, live and acoustic (*sigh*) so I thought I'd post a couple of YouTube videos of their performance. ...

Tomorrow night Bags for the People will be holding a Sweatshop Social at Spacecraft Brooklyn . They'll be making reusable tote bags (or, as they say, ''totes cute totes''). All you have to bring is your hollow leg and some clean fabric; they'll supply sewing machines, scissors and lots o' home brewed beer (why does that sound like a dangerous combination?). The event is from 6:30 to 8:30 on Thursday, April 23 (OK, so that's technically after Earth Day, but ... Read More

The group 'of ladies of all ages, nationalities, and... gender,' headed up by Magda Sayeg, who lives in Texas, will be covering 69 parking meter poles on Brooklyn's Montague Street with bright, hand-knit sleeves in May, as ...
