A story tangentially related to Diplo:
My friend and I went to see Diplo spin at the Guggenheim in January of 2006, and when we arrived at the museum, the line was around the block. We stood in the freezing cold for an hour, bitching about New York, and by the end of the night we made a pact to go to Miami. We never made it in to the show, but we spent the Valentine’s Day blizzard of ’06 partying in South Beach.
See Diplo rep the sixth borough at Studio B tonight. Maybe MIA will show up.

Brooklyn Vegan (via Time Out New York) confirms it.
It’ll be gone in just over two weeks. This is all happening in the wake of the death of Sin-e.

Anybody been? Let us know what you think.
We haven’t been this uncomfortable since Bush waved at Stevie Wonder.
Yet another mid-nineties Sub Pop band reunites and makes me feel old:
PS- If anyone can get me clips of Lou Barlow on MTV’s ‚”Sex in the Nineties” (he was on the ‚”Heartbreak” episode), I will be forever in your debt. Email clh322(at)nyu(dot)edu.
Show details: Sat 3/31 6:30 PM Sebadoh, The Bent Moustache Webster Hall 18+ $20
If the thought of hearing ‚”Pop Goes the Weasel” every time you step outside to grab an ice cream sandwich this summer makes you want to weep, take heart: Michael Hearst, of lit-rockers One Ring Zero, has crafted an album of alternative ice cream truck anthems. You can hear some tracks and order the record via his myspace page (www.myspace.com/songsforicecreamtrucks), and cross your fingers and hope like hell that some of the hipper sno-cone salesfolks in your hood pick up copies.
The last time we checked, The Gap was referring to the horrible, yet omnipresent skinny jean cut as “hipster.” Currently, we refuse to go to The Gap—those horrible Claire Danes ads are inexcusable—but a tipster sent us the above image from the Gap on 5th Avenue. Apparently, in the world of fashion Williamsburg now officially means “annoyingly trendy,” “androgynously thin,” and/or “should never, ever be worn by adult males who aren’t Lou Reed.” Look for the Webster’s inclusion next year.
If you want to see two dudes making the noise of twenty men, go check out Lightning Bolt and be sure to bring earplugs. One of the noisier noise bands around, Lightning Bolt pay tribute to the Boredoms and the Ruins, and manage to get some free jazz in amongst all the cacophony. I reviewed opener Barr’s new record a while back and found it to be a little bit of a disappointment, but maybe his spoken word rants will sound better live. Make sure to show up early for the crazy, spastic genius of former The Planet The front man Charlie’s new solo act, Panther.
