Black Book and French Kicks

I went to a Black Book magazine party at 1Oak in Chelsea last night as I work near them with my new job. I was feeling kind of sick after some bad sushi but did my best to drink through it with the complimentary Skyy Vodka. I ended up having a good time anyway. I think I saw the guy ...

Blue Flowers

I've been enjoying the new Destroyer album quite a bit. He's been on the top plays list on last.fm for awhile now and this new album has only increased the lead. I've been wanting to see Dan Bejar live for several years and am excited that I have tickets to see him next week. There is ...

Blood on the Tracks

The last couple of evenings I've been listening to Bob Dylan - Blood on the Tracks on vinyl on repeat (manual repeat). I've had it for awhile but hadn't totally absorbed it like I have until recently.

I've been on a big Bob Dylan kick recently. Trying to get most of his albums on vinyl when I ...

Handsome Furs @ Bowery Ballroom

I saw the Handsome Furs last night at Bowery Ballroom with Emily. I'm always up for seeing most any Canadian rock band and even more so if they have any relation to Wolf Parade.

The Handsome Furs are Dan Boeckner and his wife Alexei Perry. The music is much moreo stripped down than Wolf Parade as its just Boeckner ...

Fool in the Rain

I was just watching the Led Zeppelin Song Remains the same concert film again on VH1 classics. Every time I watch that performance it blows me away. It is one of the greatest live music recordings I've seen. In addition to all the members of the band being at their peak, the videography and editing is outstanding as well ...

The boy with the thorn in his side

When I stepped out onto the sidewalk this morning to go to work it was a bright sunny day, perfect temperature. I got the song Cemetry Gates by The Smiths in my head after that, the line about “a dreaded sunny day, so I meet you at the cemtry gates.” I wasn’t really dreading the sunny day I just ...

The National @ Terminal 5

I was invited to go see The National the other night with my friend Emily. This was the opening night of a new venue in midtown west / hell's kitchen called Terminal 5. I had high hopes for the place because its owned by the Bowery Ballroom people who have the best venues in NYC. The venue was in kind ...

Animal Collective @ Webster Hall

I came into Webster Hall with a friend waiting for Animal Collective to start. We were there a little over an hour and 15 after the doors open, seemed like it should be about time for them to start.

After a beer or 2 we realized a band was already playing, it was some kind of weird electronic ambient music ...

Happy Birthday

I woke up this morning to a phone call where my family sang a harmonious version of happy birthday to me. It was the best birthday wakeup call I could think of. It immediately reminded me of the short track on Aphex Twin’s Drukqs album called “Lornaderek”. Its a short recording of what sounds like his parents calling him ...

Tokyo Police Club @ Bowery Ballroom

I finally got to see Tokyo Police Club last night. I had tried to get tickets several times but they always sold out quick. I got these tickets several months ago and was excited to see this one wasn't sold out yet.

The Bowery is one of my all time favorite venues to see live music. Every time its ...
