The New Pornographers

I’m embarrassed to say that I somehow never heard a New Pornographers song until this fall. Better late than never, I guess. They’re phonomenial.

This concert video is a great introduction to some of their best work. (It’s borderline criminal that there’s barely 10K views on this as of this writing.)

I can’t wait until we’re in a world where it’s safe to go to a concert again. These guys are at the top of my list.

At the STAR WARS costume exhibit, making my 8 year old self insanely jealous.


In Utero

…and over at the Nirvana exhibit, my 23 year old self is going completely apeshit.

John Chin Trio

Sadly, I can count the times I’ve been to a jazz club on one hand. But after seeing John’s trio tear it up Monday night at Small’s, I realize I really need to get out more often.

I truly hope I never EVER hear someone look at one of these and say “hey, they built a real version of that thing in iTunes!”

Zen Master of Sixth Avenue

Jon Pratt is an amazing composer who has created beautiful music for my last two short films. His coolness also extends into the insect kingdom, where he has a huge grasshopper following.

Dicapo Opera Theatre

One of my favorite things about NYC is that you can never know it all; what you don’t know will always be immense. Kinda like life itself.This was my first time to Dicapo and I have to say it was pretty cool. I’d never heard contemporary opera before nor did I know opera could be performed in small venues. Check it out if you get a chance.
