Looking for someone to take my room starting October 1st. Lease runs until July 1st. Rent is $825 a month, plus utilities (usually very cheap). Total move in is $1,050 (rent plus $225, which is for gas and water. It’s $300 year but I have taken $75 off for the three months I lived here).
Room is a good size, can easily fit a full size bed, dresser, shelf, side table, etc. Has a deep closet and a fireplace mantel for extra storage. Apartment is located off the Montrose L, Flushing JM, Flushing G. Close to two large grocery stores, lots of bodegas, laundromats, bars, restaurants, parks, etc. Email me for more information. firstname.lastname@example.org.
This exchange happened outside of Cameo last night at Big Terrific…

Me: Sorry man I have no change.
Bum: Aw that’s alright, you got a spare smoke?
Me: It’s my last one.
Bum: That’s alright too. You real pretty, you take care of yourself, you hear?
Me: You take care of yourself too, man.
Bum: Oh I got the lord watching out for me. I’ll be alright. You have a good night.
Me: You have a good night too.
Bum: You have a good WEEK.
Me: You have a good week too.
Bum: You have a good YEAR.
Me: You have a good TWO years.
Bum: You have a good DECADE.
Me: You have a good TWO decades.
Bum: How about FOUR?
Me: How about FIVE?
Bum: HOW ABOUT FIVE MORE?
Bum: We gonna be in the old folks home together?
Bum: You gonna remember me?
Me: For sure!
Bum: We gonna play CHECKERS?
Me: Hell yes.
Bum: TIGHT (fist bump) Later, girl

Hopscotch Music Festival is next week in Raleigh, North Carolina. 170 bands (more if you include day parties) in three days. Here is what I’m psyched about.
Thursday, September 6
Gross Ghost (Carrboro, NC) at 10PM at Berkeley Cafe
Holograms (Stockholm, Sweden) at CAM or Cities Aviv (Memphis, TN) at Pour House at 11:30PM
Liars (Los Angeles, CA) at 12AM at Memorial Auditorium
Thee Oh Sees (San Francisco, CA) at CAM or G-Side (Huntsville, AL) at Pour House or Trash Talk (Sacramento, CA) at Lincoln Theatre at 12:30AM
Obviously, I can’t make three shows all in the same time slot. I have some TOUGH choices to make. Might skip Thee Oh Sees, maybe, since they are playing in Brooklyn two weeks later with Ty Segall… Trash Talk will be fun as shit. Holograms are a must-see. It is their first tour in the United States!
Friday, September 7
The Jesus and Mary Chain (Glasgow, Scotland) at 8:35PM in City Plaza
Everything at Lincoln Theatre: Heads on Sticks (Raleigh, NC) at 9:30PM, Odonis Odonis (Toronto, Canada) at 10:30PM, Zola Jesus (Los Angeles, CA) at 11:30PM, Killer Mike (Atlanta, GA) at Lincoln Theatre at 12:30AM.
ITAL (Washington DC) at Five Star at 12:30AM
I looooooove Odonis Odonis (they are also playing the Brooklyn Vegan/Figure Eight Management day party at Pour House on Friday with Field Report, Flock of Dimes (Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak), Dope Body, White Life, and Made of Oak. ITAL is Daniel Martin-McCormick, a Brooklyn/DC based electronic artist who is awesome. He used to be in Black Eyes from DC, who fucking ruled.
Odonis Odonis “Busted Lip”
ITAL “Crazy On The Congas”
Flock of Dimes “Curtain”
Saturday, September 8
Escort (Brooklyn, NY) at 6:55PM and The Roots at 8:30PM in City Plaza
NOBUNNY (Oakland, CA) at 10:30PM, Danny Brown (Detroit, MI) at 11:30PM, and Flosstradamus (Chicago, IL) at 12:30AM, all at CAM
The Spits (Seattle, WA) at 11:30AM at Slim’s
Wye Oak (Baltimore, MD) at 12:30AM at Lincoln Theatre
Sunn O))) (Paris, France/Los Angeles, CA) at 12:30AM at Memorial Auditorium
ESCORT IS SO MUCH FUN. I’ve been trying to see this band for like, five years, and I finally got my chance in a few months ago at Brooklyn Bowl (you can watch a good amount of the show via the LastFM YouTube page, here is "A Bright New Life"). It did not disappoint. 17 piece disco band? Yes, please. Stoked for Danny Brown. If all he did was laugh in the mic for 45 minutes, I’d be happy with that.
Escort “Love In Indigo”
Danny Brown “Grown Up”
Wye Oak “Spiral”
The Spits “Die Die Die”
Other shit that will rule:
Thursday: Matthew E White at 11:30PM at Fletcher Opera Theater, Hume at 11:30PM at Kings Barcade, Altos at 10:30PM at Lincoln Theatre, J Roddy Walston and the Business (so much hair) at 12:00AM, Guardian Alien (get weird) at 11:00PM at White Collar Crime.
Friday: Dope Body at 10:30PM at Five Star, The Psychic Paramount (so much fog) at 8:30PM at Lincoln Theatre, Roomrunner at 11:00PM at Tir na nOg.
Saturday: Lambchop (I <3 Kurt Wagner) at 12:00AM at Fletcher Opera Theatre, Whatever Brains at 12:30AM at Slim’s, The Toddlers at 9:00PM at The Hive.
Finalized, sort of…
