Our writer Aurora Montgomery went to the Elvis Perkins in Dearland show at the Bell House in Brooklyn last week and fell madly in love with the band. (One member in particular.) Here is a review of the show that got Aurora so twitterpated: Elvis Perkins took the stage sans In Dearland (his accompanying band) and started strumming an acoustic guitar and singing quietly into his microphone. The room was dark, the crowd was quiet and transfixed; all eyes were forward and steady on Perkins and his sweet, sad lulling. Read More

Patti Smith is People Too!

BY debbie in Music

Found this awesome video of Patti Smith on an episode of the late-70's/early-80's TV show "Kids are People Too," via Lesley's blog who found it on Kathleen's blog. I love how Patti explains punk rock by saying that "Rock 'n roll's gettin' back in the hands of the people, it belongs to the kids again, not the big business guys" and the host just kind of mumbles in response, "We can go for that, I think..."

Our writer Aurora Montgomery went to the Dosh show at Union Hall in Brooklyn last week and wrote all about it. Here it is! Dosh is comprised of Martin Luther King Chavez Dosh and Michael Lewis. Together they play a myriad of instruments looped and layered on top of each other, building a beautiful hybrid of electronic, improvisational jazz and pop music.  I was able to see them last Thursday in the dark and intimate underbelly of Brooklyn’s Union Hall, and spoke to Martin Dosh briefly from his van before the show.
