Kathryn Irby, a former fashion editor at Lucky Magazine and vintage consultant teamed up with event producer and emmieshouse productions president, Emily Lichtenberg, to explore new ways of shopping your neighborhood. The addition of the concert at Brooklyn bowl feeds into this neighborly notion–Lichtenberg claims, “It was an obvious decision to continue the debauchery of our shopping crawl into the night. Let’s be honest, top hobbies in our neighborhood have always been: shopping, drinking, and shows!” Business partner, Kathryn Irby, echoed this sentiment and added, “Neon Gold and Brooklyn Bowl are the party masters so we’re very excited to team up and take on the night!” (more…)
Footage of proud Williamsburg resident and actor Michael K. Williams hopping on stage at Brooklyn Bowl during a Sandy relief concert last month has just emerged. The man known for his incredible performance as Omar on HBO’s The Wire gave a high energy performance of Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s Brooklyn Zoo. Not coincidentally Williams will also be channeling ODB in the forthcoming film Dirty White Boy. Last year Michael K. Williams spoke to MTV about the task of portraying ODB:
“I am doing a lot of research on Russell,” Williams said recently on the set of the upcoming short film “They Die by Dawn.” “I had the pleasure of meeting his beautiful mother, Ms. Cherry. We sat down for, like, three hours, and she told me the most amazing stuff about her son and a lot of things that the public didn’t know. I’ve been talking to people who know him well … people who knew him when the cameras weren’t rolling,” Williams said. “I’ve got a lot of insight into who he was as a human being and as a man and, dare I say it, scholar. The dude was quite smart. You have to be able to recite mathematics and be 5 percent of god body — you can’t play with that. You have to know what you’re talking about. It’s a lot of studying, a lot of knowledge.”
I went and caught The Drums over at Brooklyn Bowl lastnight. Thank you Spin Magazine and Diet Coke for a great night of music. I wasn’t in a drinking mood so I definitely drank atleast 4 of those free sodas being passed out. I’ve always thought The Drums studio stuff was good but I must say they’re about 2X’s better live. Outstanding set! Enjoy!
This Friday Brooklyn Bowl is hosting a benefit in honor of DJ Jonathan Toubin, who was sent to the hospital in critical condition on December 8th when a car crashed into the hotel room where Toubin was staying in Portland. 100% of the proceeds will go to assisting with Jonathan’s hospital and medical bills. Tickets are $25 minimum in advance, $35 minimum donation day of show. The bill is pretty amazing to say the least:
Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Heavy Trash, Stabbing Eastward (Tunde Adebimpe & Ryan Sawyer), Royal Baths, Rotating DJ’s All Night Long: Gibby Haynes (Butthole Surfers), Billy Miller (Norton Records), Bear In Heaven, Leo Fitzpatrick, Habibi, and Slowdance.
Come out and show your support!

DOORS: 10:30 PM / SHOW: 11:30 PM
For you non-french speakers, the title of Of Montreal’s new song, “L’age d’or,” translates to “The Golden Age.” Though it’s not clear what the first single off the band’s thecontrollersphere EP is referring to, if it’s the amount of glitter used in their videos and live shows, then that sounds about right.
Their new video, featuring a camera shy Kevin Barnes and several face-painted females, is made up of fast moving, spliced images shot in day-glo color. At times the images are so bright it almost make your eyes hurt, but in typical Of Montreal fashion, the video is so mysterious and visually dynamic that it’s too hard to look away.
Barnes will be DJing at Brooklyn Bowl next month on August 6th under the pseudo-name DJ List Christee.
