New York has a bomb-ass burlesque scene, and Bushwick Burlesque hopes to extend their bomb asses to the outer boroughs. Hard-partying Brooklynites looking for a good time without straying stumbling-distance from your local bar: this is not to be missed.
Bushwick Burlesque goes down twice a month at The Morgan in Bushwick. Thanks to powerhouse producers/performers Darlinda, Just Darlinda and Miss Spoke, your Tuesday nights just got a little more sparkle, and a lot ... Read More

Brooklyn-based trio Vivian Girls’ music just feels so, well, Brooklyn—a little gritty, rough around the edges, with lots of heart, and lots going on. I love Brooklyn. So much, in fact, that I live there atop the largest oil spill in U.S. history. No, I don't drink the water. Anyway, when I saw the trio of Cassie Ramone, Katy Goodman, and Fiona Campbell (new drummer!) play at New York City’s Webster Hall recently, it was evident that the ... Read More

They're young. They're super cute. And they're coming to a dance floor near you. Actually, Holy Ghost! is probably on the verge of taking over every club's sound system around the globe.

I checked out the five-piece Brooklyn-based band Saturday night at Terminal 5, wondering how their infectious club beats would translate to a live stage performance. All I can say is: Holy shit! Holy Ghost! is one of my fave bands ... Read More

Recently signing to Domino records, she was accompanied by several others on stage, compared to Austra's typical line-up of Stelmanis, drummer Maya Postepski, and bassist Dorian Wolf.
"Young and Gay" chimed with ... Read More

So maybe he’s not a band per se, but Brooklyn-based producer DATALOG and his new EP, Threads, is worth an alert. Threads is a hazy, warm blend of electronica, jazz, and world beats, all wrapped up in one kicked-back, noir-tinged package. Fans of everything from Flying Lotus to Massive Attack take note. Songs like “Sink Babies” offer subtle samples and thumps aplenty; the title track is a melancholy acid trip that demands ass shaking. Not ... Read More
