New York City

Chris Tucci — illustrator, animator, universal charmer and hero behind our long standing Sunday Night Live music series in the lobby of Ace Hotel New York — recently finished this bewildering animation for Streets of Laredo. We can’t decide which part we like the most.


Brooklyn’s Bird Courage make their own (see figures above and below for evidence of off-duty making). The trio bring their gracefully crafted ballads and hymnals to Ace New York with a September-long residency at Sunday Night Live, curated by Chris Tucci. With new accompanying guests every weekend including Morgan O’Kane, Meaner Pencil, Streets of Laredo, Ricci Swift (of Gondola) and Wilder Maker, their lobby reign begins tomorrow night.

We have an old friend named Chris Tucci. He’s not old — we just mean that we’ve been friends for a long time. Chris shares a nickname with our editor — Tino. So we also have in common that we are very tough cookies. Mr. Tucci curates our Sunday Night Live series in the lobby of Ace Hotel New York, and he also is an illustrator, animator and lady’s man with great-looking spectacles. Here is a video he and Steve Merten — no relation — made for Sunday Night Live returning act Turner Cody for his song “Better Days.”
