Well here we are, the night of approximately 56,098 events. I realize you’re probably feeling overwhelmed, confused, happy, sad, mad and hungry while looking right in the face of a giant case of FOMO. Happens to the best of us, and there is no wrong decision. That being said, welcome to the post where I present three reasons to come hang out with us at Danny Screams in Not Kent Street Williamsburg tonight.
B. Danny Screams!
WHAT! A place you might not have been to before!!! Isn’t that what New York’s all about?!!? A cool spot at Grand and Leonard, I think you can see Bushwick Country Club from it? Just in case you need cheese balls. But yeah, nice dudes who let us have the best time back in December – more here.
C. DJs Elfgirl and KatePilgrim!
Working in a venue ourselves, we know well that the biggest buzz kill is when the crowd turns and runs as soon as the last band is over. WHERE ARE YOU GOING? DO YOU LIKE US? Well, not here, not tonight. I always say that my friend Becky is the one who taught me to dance in public and Erin (Elfgirl) is the one who showed me it’s cool to dance at shows. And I don’t dance unless it’s GOOD, so you know no bad songs will touch your ears.
That’s all I got. If you’re seeing some other band (why), you should come by for the dance portion of the evening. If you’re planning on dancing somewhere else, you should come for the band portion of the evening. If you need to stay in and go to bed early, that’s fair and we all need that sometimes.
TREAT YO SELF.

I dare say this requires zero introduction…

Oh hey it’s me, with the wind back in my sails (there’s a joke about the Mayflower that I really don’t feel like making).
There’s been a draft about Radar Eyes, a band I like a lot from Chicago, lingering on my WordPress since they came to town a couple weeks ago. And now because I’ve been up since 7 AM, read a book, ate two bowls of cereal and drank two cups of tea, I’m reminded that I ought to actually post something about them. Myself and two great lady friends decided to check them out one Saturday at Cake Shop; I can’t remember who we decided to miss, but we chose right.
Their debut full-length came out on Hozac in February 2012, but I somehow missed it entirely, as is so easy to do. It really does pay to work somewhere with a constantly updated iPod, not to mention a playlist that sounds like your boss lives in your brain.
Anyways, enough words. Check it out…

So, I happen to like the dudes over at Pretty & Nice quite a bit. Do you know them? They’re great, and so is their band. Plus, boy, are they smart…
You see, P&N have been running a PledgeMusic campaign for the release of their new EP, Us You All We, aaaand it’s kind of a no brainer situation. Pledge now and get access to instant song streams and exclusive content (who doesn’t like the ole +1?), in addition to a variety of choose your own adventure type of exclusives.
Basically, spend $5 -> get mp3s. Spend $10 -> get the record delivered. Spend $20 -> record + release party tix in Boston or NYC. $25+ -> THE MOON!
Thing is, it’s getting down to the wire… there’s only twenty hours left in the Pledge campaign, and they’re at a “paign”fully (AH) close 88%. I hope you’ll consider donating! I mean, c’mon, a record plus a t-shirt plus A TACO NIGHT? This is the best deal going! I love tacos.
