If you haven't already guessed (based on the fact that we have virtually EVERY FIPS event there), we love the shit out of the Bell House.
I don't play bocce ball (cause I'm not really sporty like that), BUT I do love the hot dog at Union Hall. And also I have great affection for them since they tried to ban SUV strollers last year (though, of course, that didn't work).
This week, the NYT City Room blog is featuring Bell House/Union Hall talent buyer, Jack "Skippy" McFadden, who is standing by ready to answer all of your burning questions about the NYC music scene, clubbing, boozing, or anything else talent buyer-ish.
We thought we'd get the party started with a couple questions for Skippy of our own:
- When you're booking shitty bands (that people dig for some unknown reason), do you pretend like you think they're not shitty?
- Do bands (shitty or otherwise) still bitch about coming to Brooklyn?
- Why does everyone in Brooklyn love Animal Collective and TV on the Radio so fucking much? I mean, yeah they're great, but its getting a little over the top. Do you think its some sort of local genetic cellular mutation?
- Can you make sure that all FIPS readers get free drinks from here on in?
