Sláinte this Saturday: St. Patrick’s Day Guide 2018

The 17th of March is almost upon us, where wearing green and downing a Guinness (or two) are required salutes to the Irish spirit. Though historically more Polish and Italian than Irish, we’ve still got a list of things to do and pubs to frequent with Celtic roots. So go get your green on, Greenpoint.

Sim F-expletiving Ross: Easy Truth to Redemption

Sim Ross & The Redemption Pine Box Rock ShopSim Ross is one of those guys who says the f-expletive for every possible expression of his temperament. Pissed. Happy. Mistaken. Excited. Wishing you a happy birthday. F-expletive. His Instagram handle is @simfuckingross. Dressed in tight black jeans, a navy chambray button up, and black boots, he reminds me of Jason Isbell, except with a beard and more tattoos, inked at a spot he used to hang around in his hometown of Cleveland. His band, Sim Ross & the Redemption, creates weighty, whole-souled, roots rock, Americana inspired music. I catch their set at the Pine Box Rock Shop in Bushwick. Continue reading
