Carmine’s Pizzeria on Graham Avenue is opening a second location which they have creatively named “Carmine’s II” at 436 Union Avenue. New York Shitty reports that there will be “garden seating just in time for spring”. We’re not sure it’s entirely necessary to open a second location within a five minute walk of the original, but the garden seating sounds appealing.

And according to Animal, he’s being courted by TV producers. (God help us)
Nate Hill, the magically strange NYC-based artist who has developed more alter egos than a schizophrenic may be getting a reality show centered around his bad memory-extracting mascot: Death Bear. He says a bunch of producers from LA have been hounding him and is actively seeking advice on how best to proceed with a Hollywood hustle.
Wait What is a 24-year old DJ employed at a San Francicsco tech company who is having one hell of a week. Last week, on the 13th anniversary of Life After Death, he released his debut album The Notorious XX, which, as the name suggests, combines Biggie and The XX into a union one wouldn’t expect to sound as right as it does. It’s an instantly iconic CERN-like mashup of indie rock and hip hop that totally works. The atoms are colliding!
the notorious xx began as an idea in my sister’s apartment, where I was trying to figure out what it would sound like hearing juicy over vcr, and since then expanded to include all 11 tracks of the xx’s debut album chopped, sliced, and mashed up with biggie’s vocals. I made it over the span of a few weeks in boston, williamstown, albany, chicago, aspen, denver, and san francisco, and then mastered over 10 days in zurich, zermatt, london, san francisco, dallas, baton rouge and new orleans.
Here’s the exclusive premiere of Langhorne Slim’s session with San Francisco based blog Yours Truly as he belts out “Cinderella” off of the folk crooner’s Be Set Free, which captured our wide-eyed hearts late last year.
Plus, we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away for Langhorne’s show tomorrow night at City Winery– just comment on the Facebook contest thread for your chance to win!
Brooklyn Bowl is looking for summer interns, er, “social media and live music ninjas.” Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to get in on that sexy action.
The fine folks at Brooklyn365 have created a nice lil’ Google Map with all of the Williamsburg Art Galleries plugged in. It’s pretty darn helpful, and lets you keep track of all the spots by location, name, phone, website and hours.
For as long as we can remember we wanted a map which would allow us to stumble from gallery to gallery on a lazy Williamsburg weekend. Since we couldn’t find one, we created one. Click on any of the red pins to see the gallery name, hours of operation, and website/twitter/etc (if available).

Halfslant, an artist’s collective committed to bringing art to alternative spaces (such as last year’s Bushwick Lightbox in Brooklyn), have a new project in the works and they need your help!
Nowa Soda means the New Soda in Polish. The five week long artist in residency program aims to transform the building in which the exhibition and residency will be held, which used to house the Krakow Soda Works chemical refinery plant for almost 100 years. The sole remaining building from the immense complex, the Centre for Contemporary Art Solvay has a complex and fascinating history- Pope John Paul II worked there during World War II to avoid deportation and today it stands as a forgotten monument and symbol of the transformations that have occurred in Poland over the last 20 years.
Real Estate’s Alex Bleeker lent a hand with original music for the film, asking for your help with donations to help fund the exhibition which opens mid-May. Your $$ goes a long way, and you’ll be rewarded for your good deed with personalized postcards from Poland, Limited Edition artwork, and custom designed t-shirts by Spanish artist Ester Partegas. For more information on the artists, check out the Nowa Soda website. And be sure to DONATE!
Do you ride a bike? Do you not wear a helmet? And is it not because you think it makes you look like a dweeb, but rather you’re frugal and personal safety is just one of those places where you cut corners? I’m not sure how many people that leaves, but if you’re one of them, you may be interested in the free bike helmet giveaway goin’ on at Pratt tomorrow, Tuesday the 30th, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m in conjunction with Pratt’s “Green Week”. Say thanks to the D.O.T. after you grab yours in the center of campus (or in the Student Union if it rains [which it will]).
