The killer of Menachem Stark, the man who went missing in South Williamsburg and whose body was later found in a dumpster on Long Island, was finally identified and is being held without bail on murder charges.

Pitchfork announced it’s 2 Northside showcase lineups, which will take place at St Vitus and feature Frankie Cosmos, Perfect Pussy, and our new favorite band (for the name), Couch Slut.
