Tomorrow, you can stream performances by a wealth of artists including Dr. Dog, MIA, Calexico and the Drive-by Truckers. Okerrvil River, The Cure, Jenny Lewis and Public Enemy are among the performances being webcast by AT&T on Sunday.

Review: Telepath, Eliot Lipp and Joe Nice

When I saw the bill of Telepath, Eliot Lipp and Joe Nice on the schedule for April 9 at NYC’s Sullivan Hall, I knew I should attend this show. I was introduced to grime and dubstep through the music of Mathhead/Passions and Curses/Drop the Lime, co-founders of the Trouble and Bass collective. For a while, I have thought that the hippie culture might be saved from obscurity through the incorporation of dance music and electronica.

Jambands have been inflicted with stereotypes that no longer hold true. The word jamband does not work anymore and could be used synonymously with “improvisational music” or “live music.” Dance music serves the purpose of relieving stress and creating a sense of well being, which is the same thing that drives the live music industry. What these three acts all have in common is that they are all skilled and unique musicians who put on a great live show.

Musicians like Telepath, Eliot Lipp and Joe Nice are contributing to our happy family of live music lovers, helping to bring good music to a new audience made up of brightly colored, flat brimmed freaks, in their own right. Though this culture has a slightly stronger emphasis on consumerism, it might balance out the crusty, radical hippie ideals that got this music tossed aside in the first place. Though it’s not like it ever really mattered what the mainstream thought anyway.

Friday for the Foodies: Bubby’s Midnight Brunch Returns to NYC Tonight!

As I was going through my twitter feed today, I came across this:

AlwaysHungry First Look: Bubby’s Midnight Brunch Menu

Once again, Always Hungry brings us the goods on where to eat in NYC. We all get out of live shows after midnight or way after sometimes and we want to go somewhere to grab a bite. I am hoping to check the brunch out in the near future, maybe on 4/20 after the Pete Rock show at the Hudson Hotel.

This part really whetted my appetite:

Bubby’s Midnight Brunch offers a saving grace in the form of Cheese Fries, Fried Chicken & Waffles and Pibil “Pork” Tacos. From midnight-to-8am, stacks of pancakes will be stuffed with blueberries, chocolate chips or caramelized bananas and walnuts, and I ask you, what’s better than a trifecta of Benedicts to help subdue that one drink too many?

Bubby’s Restaurant Bar-Bakery
120 Hudson St
New York, NY 10013
(212) 219-0666

Here’s what else I came across that piqued my foodie interest this week:

Dumpstaphunk: Highline Ballroom, New York, NY 3/27/09

Tickets for Dumpstaphunk's March 27th show at the Highline Ballroom read "Post Allman Brothers Show,” but there were precious few Peachheads present for one A.M. start time or beyond. Not that it mattered because anyone entering the venue would've had the same reaction: an irresistible physical response to the overpowering rhythms exploding from the stage.
