There’s just about an app for everything these days, isn’t there?
Brooklyn Bowl is the latest to join ranks with their app that lets you do everything from check out their schedule to use the app as a digital lighter to wave at concerts. AND from tonight to Friday, the first 50 people to show off their shiny iphone with the Brooklyn Bowl app get in free. That means you can possible see for zero dollars: Talib Kweli, Carney, Questlove, and Eliot Lipp. No love for the Android users yet, huh? Download is here.

My favorite Texas-based band storms through Lulu’s tonight for FREE. They call their sound depressive realism and their next album is called “Open Your Eyes, The World is Shit” but you don’t have a trumpeter in your band and be all bad news.
Go listen to Filthy South and I’ll see you tonight.
Our own little Miss Wasilewicz got interviewed by Mashable on how to be a music blogger and name dropped some essential music blogs. And what do you know, the first thing that I listen to on Altered Zones, recommended by Yours Truly, was the jam. Listen to the Young Man – Boy album on Soundcloud below.
Who would have thought last summer when shooting this one shot bonanza that we were predicting and, some might say, trumping a beverage trend that wouldn’t happen for another year. Icing? Pffh. I would be more worried about getting Tecate Bukkaked.
A gender studies graduate student could definitely write a dissertation about the possibility of feminine empowerment via a typically male dominated substance as demonstrated in this video.
Careful ice cream kids, remember what happened to the Greenpoint Food Market after the Times showed some love?
