Let’s Play a Blogger Guessing Game

Tonight was girl’s night out for me and my friends Matt and Billy, who graciously offered me a kickass 3rd row ticket to Antony and the Johnsons at Town Hall. But as luck would have it, I wasn’t the only person with a Web site seated in that very row. Since it’s much more fun to play guessing games, I’ll let you figure out who was also at the show, sitting in my row. To top things off, you can also take a stab at which blogger decided to climb onto the stage directly after the show in order to steal a setlist?

Man, them bloggas is gettin’ allz fierce in gettin’ the biggest scoop!

Btw, I saw Hustle & Flow last night…which might explain the previous sentence. Eddie Kaye Thomas, aka- Finch in American Pie, was at my showing.

You know it’s hard out here for a pimp/ When he tryin to get this money for the rent/ For the Cadillacs and gas money spent/ Because a whole lot of bitches talkin shit

Erika’s Last Stand

This was recorded for posterity

Those of you still shedding tears over Erika Forster‘s departure from Dirty on Purpose will have solace in the fact that she features prominently in the band’s new video for “Mind Blindness.” Shot by Jacob Hensberry, the video depicts the band playing in some dark, basement-like space that is doubling as a birthday party.

Keeping Tabs on the Missus

Karen Elson in Citizens Band

Ah, when marketing minds collide! Recently, Citizens Band played a Citizens of Humanity jeans party. And as readers of this site already know by now, Mrs. Jack White, aka Karen Elson, is part of the group. It’s been rumored that her performance was so rousing that more than one well-heeled audience member was heard saying, “Play that funky zither, white girl!”

Sadly Jack wasn’t caught on camera at the event because he’s still on a world tour with this little band he’s in called the White Stripes.

I <3 U. I H8 U. When Text Messaging Takes a Turn for the Worst

I absolutely love this article by Sandra Barron that appeared in the NY Times “Modern Love” section about the rise and fall of a relationship…all via text message. When I forwarded it to some of my friends, they loved it too…although for some of them the story line was a little too close for comfort.

Desperately Seeking Folding Bikes

Brompton Bikes are beautiful

I’m not too sure how smart it is to be asking pasty, unhealthy, concert-goers about these sorts of things, but I figure hipster kids love being outdoors too.

I’m thinking about purchasing a folding bike for myself, but I wanted to know if anyone had any recommendations as to brand and model type. I want something pretty lightweight, in a size that would fit someone under 5’3″, and costs under 1,000 dollars. If it’s cute looking and happens to have a chain guard (because I’m a wimp), even better.

I’m also taking recommendations for your favorite bike shop in Manhattan below 14th Street, or on the East side. These would be the most likely places I would shop.

Thanks bike geeks.

Manhattan Carnivore Takes His/Her First Bite

Uh oh, somone has decided to create a new blog called “Manhattan Carnivore,” an obvious swipe at Brooklyn Vegan. His/Her first post details out his/her hatred of all things hipster. The person hates hipsters and all the bands that played at the Southpaw installment of Vicious’s 2nd Anniversary Party that he/she spent a whole night reveling amongst them.

As it just so happens, BV was there in the flesh that very same night. Can you imagine if MC and BV had crossed paths? There’d be Blackberries and digital cameras strewn all over the place! Reer!

Check out the Clap Your Hands Say Yeah set list this geek stole.
