I’ve never shared my missed connections with the World Wide Web, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like reading the ones that other people post. From the woman who’s trying to find the guy who was eating beef chili to the man looking for the girl on the C train with the oyster.com bag, you can’t help but wonder if any of these people, well...connect.
Apparently Sophie Blackall wondered the same thing. 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 ladies don't seem to care much about projecting a slick image. It's refreshing actually. No lace, striped tights, or leather. 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. Okay, not every club, but tons of them. 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 right now.
I'm not a huge fan of club music, but these tracks transcend all of that. Read More
