    Rock! Shock! Pop! At The Big Apple Comic Con, September 25th, 2021!

    After a successful warm up event held back in July, The Big Apple Comic Con once again returned to the historic New Yorker Hotel in Manhattan, this time for a two day affair (and in fact, day two is happening right now, as this article is being written). It was, as the July event also was, a very nice, reassuring return to form in a city that was devastated by Covid last year and that is still, like so many other larger cities

    Rock! Shock! Pop! At The Big Apple Comic Con, July 17th, 2021!



    Yesterday, July 17th, 2021, saw the first proper comic convention come to New York City since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. As anyone who watched the news in 2020 will recall, New York City, due to its density and massive population, got hit extremely hard early on and as such, things were shut down for quite a while to stop the spread and help get the positivity rate under control. Hospitals were filled up, people got sick and far too many people lost their lives. It

  • Jane Birkin - Birkin/Gainsbourg: Le Symphonic - Live At The Beacon Theater, New York City, March 6th, 2020


    On the evening of Friday, March 6th at the Beacon Theater in Manhattan, New Yorkers were treated to a live performance of Jane Birkin's Birkin/Gainsbourg: Le Symphonic, which is, quite literally, the late Serge Gainsbourg's muse and collaborator performing a selection of songs from their collective discography in front of a symphony orchestra. In this case, that happened to be The Hudson Valley Philharmonic, accompanied by composer Nobuyuki Nakajima (the man who worked with Birki...

    David Lynch - Squeaky Flies In The Mud



    Running from November 1st, 2019 through December 21st, 2019 at the Sperone Westwater Gallery in Lower Manhattan is Squeaky Flies In The Mud, an exhibition of artwork created by none other than David Lynch. It's a strange selection of material, as you'd expect if you're familiar with his work, but fascinating to see and an interesting compliment to the film's that he's made. The press release from the gallery reads as follows: “Sperone Westwater is pleased to present a

  • FEAR - Live At The Gramercy Theater, New York City, September 21st, 2018.

    FEAR - Live At The Gramercy Theater, New York City, September 21st, 2018.



    FEAR, celebrating their 40th anniversary with a tour that is, if not the original lineup, at least partially what is regarded as the 'classic lineup,' made a stop in New York City on September 21st, 2018. One of those bands that used to be able to blast through seventeen songs in fifty-minutes proved that, yes, forty years later, they should still blast through seventeen songs in fifty-minutes. Apparently time means nothing to Lee Ving, now pushing seventy but showing no signs

  • Choking Victim - Tompkins Square Park 8-5-18

    Choking Victim - Tompkins Square Park 8-5-18


    Tompkins Square Park, located in the East Village in Manhattan, has long been a sight the locals associate with politics and activism. There were anti-war protests there in the sixties, and in the eighties it became a de facto homeless camp and was ripe with drug problems. In 1988, the cops came in and tried to oust the homeless that were living there. This resulted in a now fairly infamous riot, clips of which did wind up on newscasts around the New York City area. When it was a...

  • The Dayglo Abortions Live At The Brooklyn Bazaar, Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NY June 22nd, 2018.

    The Dayglo Abortions Live At The Brooklyn Bazaar, Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NY June 22nd, 2018.



    On June 16th we went to the Brooklyn Bazaar in Greenpoint, Brooklyn to see The Street Dogs play with The New Darkbuster opening. While I was there, I drank a lot of beer and when I drink a lot of beer, I need to go to the bathroom - and so I did. Thank God! Because had I not I'd have never found out that a last minute Dayglo Abortions show was going on at the same venue in a week. It seems kind of fitting that I'd learn about a Dayglos show in a grubby, dirty, graffiti covered

    The Damned - 40th Anniversary Tour - Warsaw, Brooklyn NY 5-23-2017


    The Damned (with support from California's The Bellrays) took the stage last night in Brooklyn at the Warsaw concert theater in front of a sold out crowd. The date that had to be rescheduled after guitarist Captain Sensible tumbled off the stage and did some damage to his ribs towards the end of the Toronto show earlier on the tour. While the good Captain was put away in the hospital for a spell after the incident, you'd have never known it last night. He played with the energy and e...

    Rock! Shock! Pop! At Five Points Fest - New York City, NY May 20th & 21st 2017


    The first, of what will hopefully be a recurring Five Points Festival kicked off yesterday at Pier 36 on the Lower East Side riverfront of New York City. The two day festival, curated by Clutter Magazine and presented Midtown Comics, “is a collision of toys, comics, and counterculture.” Unlike a regular comic or toy convention, Five Points focuses the more artisanal aspect of the toy and comic industry. As such, most of the attendees had a connection to indy or small...
