Danger is a biker’s middle name. Next Sunday, bearded champions of the darkworld, daddies in leather and wheeliemongers everywhere will pull on a pair of oilslick boots, run a switchblade comb through their cowlicks and clink a bottle of Bud to laying rubber on asphalt. It’s like looking your future ghost in the face and telling them to suck an egg.

We went to a preview of the Foundry Theater’s interpretation of Bertolt Brecht’s Good Person of Szechwan last night at the Public Theater at Astor Place in New York, and it BLEW OUR LITTLE MINDS. And it blew our hearts wide open. Taylor Mac is a lightening bolt, the set is painfully charming and the music is impeccable. And of course the (mixed) message tugs, tugs, tugs at the most distracting threads of what it means to be good. If you’re in town during its run, don’t miss it — the show ends November 24. You can get all the info you need for tickets here.

Sustaining the notes of A and E in the lobby at Ace Hotel New York with Pat Noecker aka RAFT for Assemble XI — it was a thing of beauty.


To close out Notes from the Underground this evening, eleven musicians — including Brian Chase (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), JG Thirlwell (Foetus), and curator/maestro Pat Noecker aka RAFT (Liars, These Are Powers) — will spread themselves throughout the lobby at Ace New York, charged with the deceptively simple task of “working to sustain the notes of A and E.” Your job is to wander, letting your feet and ears create your own unique piece of music. If it’s anything like Noecker’s other happenings, this hourlong performance will be immersive, brainy, and dark around the edges. Read about all the performers and learn more on our calendar. We’ll see, and hear, you tonight.


The Long Winters are Skyping in to the Ace NY lobby today at 2pm for CMJoyful with MyMusicRx. Be there or be square. Woop!

MyMusicRx’s CMJoyful in the New York lobby yesterday evoked tears of joy due to Justin of Menomena's bass saxual healing, Jesca Hoop's hook-line-and-sinker vocals and all the other spacious, generous tunes that were spun throughout the afternoon. We've still got a few hours left in today's line-up, and PIAS DJs in the evening. See the full line-up here — bring a friend and try out the Breslin's brand new cocktail roster, too. CMJoyful, record label DJs and Notes from the Underground continues through Saturday, culminating in a collaborative performance piece with RAFT, Assemble XI.
