Faulkner Off To A Rocky Start

Before heading out on my holiday vacation last month, I was invited to The Mercury Lounge to feast my ears upon the music of Venice, California-based band, Faulkner. While I was initially intrigued by front man, Lucas Asher’s, eye-catching black wings and what promised to be a legitimate stage show, I unfortunately found myself rather disappointed a…

Miley Cyrus > Pope Francis

One of the most popular people of 2013 has been Pope Francis. He even won Time Magazine’s Person of the Year, beating out Miley Cyrus. Which is bullshit, Miley totally should have won based of the fact alone that I never beat off to the pope naked on a wrecking ball… But any who, I…

Darwin’s Disappointment

On the train last night, I spotted a man wearing shorts in 22° weather, a girl who had never had a snack in her life, and a whole family of gingers. It suddenly occurs to me: we’ve ruined evolution.

The album’s opener and title track is “Heart of a Lion”.  In…

The LoveHowl Strikes…Again?

Remember that one band I wrote about last year? The one with the one song and the talent and the “24 reasons” to show some love (and howl..)? Yeah, they’re releasing their first EP, and it’s so awesome that one release party wasn’t enough. So Sunday night at Piano’s in the Lower East Side, The…

Recap: Cherub Improv Gala

What do you get when you combine an improv troupe with a group home full of spunky elderly citizens? Just one of the many reasons behind the third annual Cherub Improv Gala, “Angels Among Us.” Founded roughly eight years ago by a group of three friends including Jonathan Evan Goldberg, Steve Van Ooteghem and Joy Purver, Cherub Improv…
