I don’t know if the news about this storm got to all you South Jersey/Philly folk, but it was really intense and strange for this part of the world.
The Weakerthans are playing a show at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City this Friday, Sept. 18, 2009.
Some of you already know that I purchased 4 tickets to this event months ago. In fact, some of you already have dibs on these tickets.
How many $8 plates should I reasonably limit myself to?

The line-up is:
The Mountain Goats
Miranda Cuckson, violin
Reiko Uchida, piano
(The latter pair performing music for piano and violin by Franz Schubert and Francis Poulenc apparently)
Tomorrow I’m taking the entire day to cycle through the city (mainly below 34 St.) and tour some stores I’ve heard about. I wouldn’t necessarily call it a shopping spree exactly, just a nice way to tour the city with landmarks.
I plan on posting about my discoveries/opinions later on.
List of stores after the jump…
A plane crash landed into the Hudson river near 50th St. at around 3:30 this afternoon.
New York is a black hole for Democracy. As we speak, the New York City Council is voting to extend their own tenure as legislators.
Does anyone else think this is outrageous? Details after the jump.
What a show! This band is such a powerful unit of folk rock it’s unbelievable. Every member plays so tightly and when they change something, they change it on a dime. When Will Sheff performs his music, you get a great sense of love and ownership of the tunes. Every slow song was captivating and every other selection was played like it was the finale.
The concert strengthened The Stand-ins, solidified The Stage Names and Black Sheep Boy and intrigued me to get their earlier albums.
My major hobby since moving to Jersey City is cycling. I take at least 2 small weekday trips and one major weekend one each week. I usually end up on the Hudson waterfront, and I almost always stop to take in the view.
I only wear headphones/iPod occasionally. But I was thinking tonight about what would be good New-York-City-view-while-cycling music.
