Jimmy Tarangelo is an effing badass. He doesn’t like paying rent, but he does like living in Manhattan. So what does he do? He lives in a van down by the river, literally.
I spent a few hours with Jimmy and let him speak his mind.

We didn’t even know anyone still listened to the Insane Clown Posse, aka the worst band on earth. I guess we were wrong. The “most misunderstood people of all time”—they call themselves Juggalos—have been gathering annually for a decade to huff Draino, watch live wrestling, gang-bang ‘Juggalettes’,’ and listen to a lot of shitty music while they get their Insane Clown Posse on.
“The tenth annual promises to be bigger, badder and better than the nine previous years. Is that even possible? Guess what, it is possible. And it will fucking happen…. this is the motherfucking year to go bitch boy.”
This year, the festival will feature Coolio, Jimmy J.J. Walker, a wet t-shirt contest, “dudes on stilts,” “ninjas juggling fire,” and “Hog Daddy’s giant hellfire of death.”
Needless to say…. every minute of this video is essential viewing.
Cancel your Thursday night plans, Brooklyn Bowl will be the place to be. Celebrating 10 years of giving you the digital goods, Insound is throwing themselves a birthday party that is sure to make you move.
Show starts at 6pm and you’ll be enjoying the likes of our favorite local musical peeps:
First off, The Drums, who’ll be releasing their Summertime! EP on Twenty Seven Records this September 15th (which you can pre-order at Insound) as a nightcap to the sweaty/rainy season. These boys have been running through my mind much like their new video.
Next up, probably the last time you can catch Cymbals Eat Guitars in New York until their Bowery show in October. And lastly, two of our Northside Festival homies, Real Estate and These Are Powers. One last band is yet to be announced… but looking at this lineup, I’m not worried– are you?
Tickets are $10, and expect the place to get packed. But not as packed as the Waterfront this past Sunday!
PS… FREE BEER provided by Brooklyn Brewery from 6-8pm!
Check out the video for The Drums “Let’s Go Surfing”, the song that’s been stuck in my head all summer, after the jump.
Who knew Joy Division would translate so well to an orchestra of steel drums being transported on a flatbed truck? [via]
Well, we’ve got the answer!
One part Rude Dude, and Todd P Goes to Austin director, Jay Buim will be DJing at Legion Bar with special guest The Eradicator (aka Dustin from Best Fwends)– it’s a last minute thing, y’all… So go pack the place!
Oh and, karaoke in the back too! Here’s a little something to get you in the mood:
