Mike Patton & Trevor Dunn melting faces at Le Poison Rouge.
I don’t think you can say you’ve seen shredding until you’ve seen these two beasts crush you 10 feet from your face.
Pixies set the Bowery on fire in the intimate ballroom.
Just in time for those cold candle-lit nights in the wake of hurricane Sandy – This mix is sure to warm you up. It’s an inspired collection for the bleeding heart.
Rhye is based out of Los Angeles and this is their first EP. The rest is a mystery.

Fashion photographer and filmmaker Jacob Sutton swaps the studio for the slopes of Tignes in the Rhône-Alpes region of south-eastern France, with a luminous after hours short starring Artec pro snowboarder William Hughes. The electrifying film sees Hughes light up the snow-covered French hills in a bespoke L.E.D.-enveloped suit courtesy of designer and electronics whizz John Spatcher. “I was really drawn to the idea of a lone character made of light surfing through darkness,” says Sutton of his costume choice. “I’ve always been excited by unusual ways of lighting things, so it seemed like an exciting idea to make the subject of the film the only light source.” Sutton, who has created work for the likes of Hermès, Burberry and The New York Times, spent three nights on a skidoo with his trusty Red Epic camera at temperatures of -25C to snap Hughes carving effortlessly through the deep snow, even enlisting his own father to help maintain the temperamental suit throughout the demanding shoot. “Filming in the suit was the most surreal thing I’ve done in 20 years of snowboarding,” says Hughes of the charged salopettes. “Luckily there was plenty of vin rouge to keep me warm, and Jacob’s enthusiasm kept everyone going through the cold nights.”
Prospector woos us tonight at Fontana’s with the release of their album Between 0 & 1. Won’t you be their Valentine?
In the face of a current trend of pastelled indie/folksy/retroverb/beach-wave, Prospector spits sexy black gasoline rock and lights it up. Prospector is a fucking band / An NYC band / A don’t let your daughter see this band, kinda band – especially on Valentines Day.
Between 0 & 1 has been one of the most anticipated releases in the LES/Brooklyn scene as Prospector’s addicted following has been amassing since the band formed in 2008. And all those turned heads will agree that the wait was worth it ’cause Between 0 & 1 just crushes forward and will leave you saying (in the words of John Norris) “Oh yeah, that’s what rock sounds like”.
For a good time, call on Prospector tonight: (THERE’S NO REASON TO BE ALONE)
