Annie Clark looks like a character right out of Tim Burton’s dreams. With her porcelain skin, big doe eyes and lots of unruly curls it’s hard to look away. It’s also very easy to take her for granted as just another pretty face. But once Clark straps on her guitar she’s a force to be reckoned with.
For BAM’s Crossing Brooklyn Ferry, a festival to celebrate Brooklyn musicians curated by The National’s Aaron and Bryce Dessner, Clark focused on her most recent album, Strange Mercy, which balances hints of honesty with blistering guitar breaks. Read More

Perhaps there are some of you out there who, like me, still don't quite know what "zine" means. No worries, here's a quick explanation: "zine" (pronounced zeehn) is short for magazine, but that doesn't fully capture the spirit of a zine. To use the words of NYC Feminist Zinefest, a zine is "like a small, pocket-sized emissary of ideas".
But these definitions will only get you so far. This Saturday, February 25th, at the Brooklyn Commons, come experience feminist zine culture for yourself! There will be presentations to listen to as well as zines and artwork for sale. Read More
