What Should Ryan Adams’s Fans Do Now?

March Madness: Guided By Voices and The Strokes @ The Apollo

In 2001, The Strokes offered fans a way to ring in the new year with them with a special pair of shows co-headlined with Guided By Voices at the world-famous Apollo Theater in Harlem.

ANNOUNCED: Ryan Adams and Mary-Louise Parker @ NYPL Live

After reading that headline, did your mind explode? Well it should have, because it’s enough when musical genius Ryan Adams and actress extraordinaire Mary-Louise Parker (aka the insatiable Nancy Botwin from Weeds) are on their own — putting them together in the same room is nearly fatal to the hearts of cool hunters worldwide. For […]
