If you’re looking for something to do in New York City tonight, check out the The Phenomenal Handclap Band at Joe’s Pub! They’re the first band I’ve been tempted to call “funky” or “groovy” in a long time! They’ve got a fun mellow sound with dance-y beats!

9:30pm tonight
Joe’s Pub
425 Lafayette Street
New York, New York

paint it black

I was so happy to stumble onto this video today! It’s the Rolling Stones back in 1966 performing Paint It Black. I love finding these old performances, and check out Mick’s jacket! It’s amazing. Plus he’s so cute! He he!

Come to Kahn Park at 11th and Pine Street tonight and see an awesome show by the West Philadelphia Orchestra! Their music is really fun, boot-stomping good, inspired the music of Eastern Europe. Check out the video below for a sampling!

I don’t know if any of you like music by M83, but you should! They have a really cool electronic and sort of ambient sound.
If you are in New York City tonight and looking for something cool to do, M83 is going to be playing at the World Financial Center Plaza at 7pm, and the word is that it’s free! Awesome!
For now, check out the amazing music video for M83′s song We Own The Sky. I’ve been grooving on it all morning…

love in july

This music video, for Sally Shapiro‘s song Love in July, is so so cute! It’s a little love story, and the animation style is really fun and unusual! Enjoy!

“In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.”
I’ve been really into this blog Artist Quote of the Day. The quotes are typically from visual artists, and the entries feature images of their work and some brief brographical information. But today was Michael.

hammer time

This will wake you up right! A group of dancers wearing hammer pants rush into a random store and surprise everyone with an awesome dance!

That made my morning, thanks! I am old enough to have worn a pair of 'hammer pants' (well, in grade 8). Some of the customers at the beginning look scared!

hey joe

Ah! I love finding treasures like this on YouTube! Here’s some footage of The Jimi Hendrix Experience playing Hey Joe and Sunshine of Your Love on the old British television show It’s Lulu. It’s pretty clear for being old and on YouTube, and it’s absolutely mesmerizing. Enjoy!

As many of you know, we were delighted to have Company of Thieves play at our We The Free store in Brooklyn this past weekend! Our Assistant Art Director Carrie popped up to see the show, and she took some great video of it! Here’s one of the songs below – they sounded great! Check back later this week for more video of the show!

Thank you Company of Thieves! And thank you Carrie!
