Hey, y'all! It's Thursday again and Thursday is where I suggest outings to break the monotony—then you either go or you don't. I have no clue becuase you never tell me! I'll remind you again—your feedback is priceless. Let me elaborate. If you have something stupid to say (you know who you are) keep it to yourself. If you have a review of an event you attended based on my recommendation, I'm all ears. I can't make it to every single event so I need your help vetting these things. I need to know, for example, if Littlefield punches babies in the face as an opening act. That shit doesn't fly with me and I'll black list them so hardcore they'll have to change their name to...Tinyfield—I'll work on that one.
So WHA-THE FUCK-SSUP? I'll tell you WHASSUP:
Thursday, 4/10, Platform, The New York Transit Museum: If you haven’t been to the transit museum you’re long overdue. It’s a treasure trove of info that pieces together how this modern marvel and daily fucking headache came to be. I’m still not exactly sure what this event is, but it sounds like interpretive performance art inspired by the subway. If that doesn’t fill the seats I don’t know what will. $10, 6:30-9pm
Friday, 4/11, Urban Omnibus Block Party 2014, Gowanus Ballroom: Why drop 50 bones to benefit an organization you’ve probably never heard of? Well, for starters, Dino BBQ is catering; there are pies from Greenpoint Pie Corps, a smattering of booze from other local vendors, not to mention the views and smells of our lovely canal. $50, 7-10pm
Saturday, 4/12, Isle of Rhodes, Rock Shop: If you know what a Rhodes is without googling I’ll be impressed as shit. Hit up the Rock Shop and get an auditory erection from a funkadelic instrument that Stevie Wonder popularized way back when. Word to the wise: grab a drink first at Mission Delores next door. It’s lovely and dog friendly. $8-$10, 8pm
