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.

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.

Ace New Yorker Natalie Lomeli captured our imagination with her proposal for a mural in room 424 at the hotel — and this is what she created. You have the key to our hearts, Natalie.

On September 6 we celebrated New York Fashion Week with the launch of the i-D Magazine retrospective, now on display in our gallery space. The ongoing exhibit showcases a selection of iconic covers from the always surprising, continuously inspiring magazine.

Started as a London street-style fanzine in 1980 by former Vogue art director Terry Jones, i-D quickly became a staple in avant-garde culture by challenging the imaginative boundaries of its contributors, speaking to a burgeoning and ever-more-connected global creative culture without losing any of that daring, witty and spontaneous British spirit that we love so much. A veritable who’s-who of past and present kings of fashion, photography and art were catapulted into international recognition in the pages of the magazine — and the opportunity to wink at the world from the front cover of i-D has become a coveted badge of honor.
If you find yourself in The City over the next few days, swing by the exhibition and take a look (pun intended) at some of Terry Richardson, Ellen von Unwerth, Juergen Teller’s best cover portraits. It’s free and open 24/7 until September 27.
