Someone royally messed up the Valentine’s Day plans this weekend. That someone being me. Bear Hands played a special show at a Lower East Side wine bar, In Vino, as part of the Vivo In Vino concert series. Only a small number of tickets are sold, and each comes with 4 glasses of wine donated by a different winemaker for each show. The nights are an intimate celebration of mesmerizingly good music and tasteful wine.  Having already been to one of the most romantic shows ever with Freelance Whales, I had gotten tickets to see another one my favorite bands at this venue.

However… when looking at the ticket earlier in the day it had said the start time was 8pm. Typically when I look at the time for a show it is when the doors open, with the band playing an hour after. Surely we could get there at 9pm and be in time for the tunes. Well, as it turns out the band was starting at 8 and we got there in time to see three songs. At least we caught “What a Drag” and “Tablasaurus.” Good thing I have a loving girlfriend and Bear Hands plays Brooklyn Bowl for free on February 27th and at Knitting Factory on March 14th.

Happy Valentine’s Day Brooke, you’re the best ❤


Hard to get any more New York than this, mixing up classic Biggie Smalls “Juicy” and Jay-Z’s East Coast anthems “Empire State of Mind” and “Summer in Brooklyn.” Truly a case where the end product is greater than the sum of its parts.

Pretty Lights is out with a new website and free downloadable album simply titled Pretty Lights Unreleased 2010 Remixes. The likes of Steve Miller Band and Pink Floyd are also getting the Pretty Lights remix treatment in another solid offering from the slick nasty Colorado music producer. Girl Talk, eat your heart out.
