The band WORKOUT is performing at Desmond’s Tavern in Manhattan on Thursday night and instead of making you spend $2.25 and go through a couple of subway transfers to get there, the concert promoters are offering a free party bus stocked with free beer. The bus will make three trips from the corner of Havemayer and Metropolitan (9 p.m., 9:40 p.m., and 10 p.m.). Spots on the bus are first come first served and once onboard there will be plenty of Radeberger and party music by DJ Timmy of Call Box Lounge.

Looks like Cronenberg is finally getting weird and perverted again, which needless to say is a good thing. I don’t know how many more times I could have watched The Brood.
This makes us even more uncomfortable than the version on last night’s Mad Men:
From The Daily Beast
Roughly translated, “zou” is a casual exclamation and “bisou” is a sweet kiss—a peck on the cheek to say hello and goodbye. So the lyrics hash out to:
Oh! Kiss kiss / My God, they are sweet! / …Oh! Kiss kiss / the sound of kisses /…Oh! Kiss kiss /…That means, I confess / But yes, I love only you!
Three girls with the names of Rosie Glassman, Britney Bora and Marina Ross have formed a band called New Myths. On March 11th, they released a self titled EP with breezy vocals gathered on a psychedelic rock foundation. This trio force is haunted by the buttery woos and whispers from each member. Their harmonies compliment their pretty hair as they sway back and forth to the background dance tempo. New Myths’ EP contains three tracks, all in the three minutes range and “It Burns Through Your Armor” is a personal favorite. Today, the girls have decided to make this EP “name your price”(huzzah!). Three alluring songs from three alluring girls, what’s not to like? Visit New Myths bandcamp here.
AMC’s Mad Men returns tonight from it’s 17-month hiatus. If you don’t have cable or just want to watch with a room full of fans, Nitehawk Cinema will be screening the season premiere. The event starts at 8pm (2-hour episode starts at 9) and there will be drink specials.
As you may have read by now, on Friday night an L train struck and killed a 20-year-old man who had fallen on to the subway tracks during a fight. We’ve posted about subway deaths before, but this one hits close to home as it happened at the Bedford L station.
According to accounts, two men were arguing on the train when things became physical. The altercation eventually moved out to the platform and both men fell on to the tracks. When the Manhattan-bound train approached, one man got out and fled, while the other was hit.
Initial reports seemed to put both men at fault, while later reports claimed the victim, a local college student named Joshua Basin, had been attacked by a drunk man.
Police have released a sketch of the suspect. Here is the description from Gothamist: “The suspect is described as a white male, between 30 and 35 years old, with a thin build, light complexion, dirty blond hair with pock marks on the right side of his face. He was wearing brown pants, black rain jacket and black sneakers.”
