New York has not always been the safe, overpriced playground for the rich. Sure, cities change but comparatively NYC is  now a child’s wonderland compared to what it was in the seventies. Left to crumble into both financial and physical ruin by president Ford, who refused to help the city pay off its debts, lower New York City was sent into a state of heavy decline. Times were bleak. The Lower East Side and Alphabet city were relentless war zones. ... Read More

As blue strobe lights flashed and the loud speakers played thrash music from an anonymous metal band, The Mountain Goats stepped onto the stage for their second of three sold out shows at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom.

These are the days of our lives... Image courtesy of ... Read More
Before I went to the Wild Flag show at NYC's Radio City Musical Hall Wednesday night, I checked out the band's Facebook page. Because I "like" them. Not because I enjoy staring at pics of Carrie Brownstein every day or anything. A post from the band read: "Hope Radio City is ready for the rough and the raw." Rough. Raw. Just how I like it. My giddiness jacked up to the 10,000th power. Wild Flag's line-up is nothing short of astounding. Carrie Brownstein ... Read More
Full disclosure: prior to watching British band Esben and the Witch play at Manhattan's Mercury Lounge last Saturday, I hadn't listened to their entire full-length album, Violet Cries. (It released on Matador in February.) This is shameful for 2 reasons: 1. Goth is in my blood; My black, brooding blood. When Esben first released the single "Marching Song" in late 2010 I listened to it for two days straight. This obsessive cycle was only broken by Sisters of ... Read More
