Weekend Music: Time Out of Mind (6/24 – 6/26)

Jimmy Gestapo from Murphy’s Law, shot before the advent of color photography.

Veteran hardcore punk bands are an odd thing. I’m thinking about the bands you listened to twenty years ago. The ones where you see their name in the concert listings and think, “They’re still around?”

Those type of bands are just not mainstream enough to land endorsement deals, multi-album recording contracts, or other obvious means of sustainability. It’s almost as if the doggedness and passion of their music carries them through hard years on the road.

Murphy’s Law, the hardcore band formed in 1982, pulls into The Grand Victory tonight (6/24) with just one remaining original member, but with the gravitas of a cultural mainstay. They’ve appeared in one of artist Matthew Barney’s Cremaster movies, and been featured in both Grand Theft Auto IV and Backyard Wrestling 2.

In another generational disconnect, Greenpoint metal institution St. Vitus puts on its grown-up clothes this weekend and hosts, of all things, a metal-themed flea market during the daytime. It’s your chance to engage in a little friendly haggling over the price of a replica blood-stained corpse. DJ Hellspell will establish the ambience.

Valentine’s Market 2016 Recap + Where to Find Your Favorite Vendors


Greenpointers Valentine’s Market 2016 from manatagami on Vimeo.

We really felt the love this past Sunday at our Valentine’s Market! Like the last (Holiday) market, it was another gorgeous day to hang out in the Greenpoint Loft, chill on the rooftop, eat and drink, and shop local! Thanks to everyone who made it out. Check out our photo booth photos here!

As always, the market was teeming with great energy and it was brought to a whole new level with a visit from cupid, who treated us to a free style rhyme before he went up to face paint on the upstairs mezzanine. And with DJ T*O*N*Y spinning a variety of love jams and hip-hop, a lot of us couldn’t help but to dance. It was a gathering of creative multi-talented people who include those who provide the free fun activities as well as our amazing vendors.

Many people ask us where they can find our vendors after the market so read on after the jump to find out! Continue reading

Bedford + Bowery Bazaar at Hester Street Fair this Saturday! (10/25)

(sponsored)This Saturday, it’s that rarest of things: a really good reason to be in Manhattan on a weekend. Bedford + Bowery – New York magazine’s site covering North Brooklyn and Downtown Manhattan – is bringing together the best of both worlds for an outdoor festival of food, shopping and music. Come for the free beer (while it lasts!) from Brooklyn Brewery; stay for the beats by members of LCD Soundsystem; and sip still more exotic brews from Greenpoint’s own Torst, whose newly Michelin-starred chef Daniel Burns will be serving up duck sandwiches. You’ll also get to try Vietnamese grub from Ridgewood’s Bunker, Malaysian street food from Williamsburg’s Pasar Malam, Japanese rice burgers(!) from East Village’s Yonekichi, Icelandic stews from the LES’s Skal, Korean-American fried bird from the Seoul Chicken, southern grub from Empire Biscuit and lots more.

Rad vendors like Etsy NY will be selling vintage clothing, home wares, jewelry, books, and zines. For Halloween, Bushwick’s Catland has all your occult items and Greenpoint’s “Wizard of Odd,” Billy Leroy, will be staging a one-day-only comeback of his famous Houston Street antiques and oddities tent. There’ll be used records – and brand new vinyl from Greenpoint label Captured Tracks. And speaking of music! Your DJs for the day will be none other than DFA Records artists Museum of Love (featuring Pat Mahoney of LCD Soundsystem) and Nancy Whang (LCD, The Juan Maclean). It’s all FREE and happening this Saturday from 11am to 6pm at the Hester Street Fair, at Hester and Essex Streets on the LES. Find more info here and follow @bedbow for updates!
