Franz Ferdinand Playing Music Hall On October 8th. Happy Birthday To Me!

I wanted to do something cool on my birthday, October 8th. I talked to some promoters and looked into some restaurants and really something was missing. Then I tune into BrooklynVegan this afternoon and I see that Franz Ferdinand is playing Music Hall on my birthday. YES! That's what was missing, an awesome concert. Somehow there are still tickets for this show so get them while you can. They're $30 after all the surcharges and bullshit but fuck it, whatever. I've wanted to see this band since I first heard then when I was wee intern at Sony Music. Now I get to see them on my birthday...awesome!

Flipper Drop Out, Municipal Waste Added To Fun Fun Fun Fest

If you hadn't heard already, SF punk legends Flipper have cancelled
their 30th anniversary tour this fall, after bass player (and founding
member of Nirvana) Krist Noveselic left the band.
I'm not sure why they
can't get someone (anyone) to play "sex bomb," as I wouldn't call
Flipper super technical, but alas.
Subsequently, they've cancelled Fun
Fun Fun Fest as well.
As unfortunate as this is to myself and other
Flipper fans, we've already filled the slot...Municipal Waste.

For those that don't know the speed metal, thrashcore of Virginia's Municipal Waste, you're missing the world's best party punk to date.

The new millenia's answer to DRI and Suicidal Tendencies, complete with
flip bill caps and stage dives galor. This band brings as much fast technical hardcore as they do fun.

Get ready to get stomped on, as Municipal Waste makes their way down to
Texas just to play Fun Fun Fun Fest!!

We'll have another list of a dozen or so amazing touring and
local djs, bands, comedians and more...

Thanks, Graham

Tonight: Andrew W.K. Piano Performance

Most people know Andrew W.K. as the party guy with the blood stained shirt. While you expect fist pumping electro-metal stuff you wouldn't expect a night of piano improvisations. See, Andrew is a classically trained pianist. I've been curious what kind of skills this dudes has on the ivory for years.

Tonight: Brooklyn Loft Party, Burning Angels, & Kickball

No need to leave Brooklyn tonight. First off there's a house party on Johnson in Bushwick with some bands I never heard of but who cares - it's a party! Then there's a birthday party for one of the Burning Angel girls at Public Assembly - expect lots of tits and tats. The final option is the big kickball league "Ball" (get it?) at The Warsaw. Of course if you didn't play in the league (or more specifically weren't asked to join a team...ASSHOLES) then I'm not sure why you would go. Personally I'm going to the house party, nothing against the Burning Angel girls but I can do without the random creepy dudes that show up.

Sparks Red Too Dangerous For Hipsters

It's a sad time for free spirited hipsters the world over (but especially Brooklyn) - the new stronger Sparks Red was banned! It was deemed too dangerous by the attorney general. The new Sparks was a direct assault against it's biggest competition, cocaine. Not the energy drink but the actual drug from South America. Hipsters looking to kick their blow habit will need to look elsewhere for the time being. Same goes for your dreams of red "Sparks tongue". Wait, does the government know that you can just buy an energy drink and dump Everclear in it? No? OK. In related news Tuesdays continue to be the new Thursday but Wednesday is creeping up.

Tonight: Open Bar At Mojito Loco + Voter Registration Party At Crest

A couple blocks away is cool little joint called Mojito Loco. The food is kind of a mix of various Latin cuisines. It's overpriced for the neighborhood but still worth stopping in for lunch every once in awhile. Despite being a restaurant they also have a decent little bar and have daily drink specials. Tonight, in an attempt to get more drinkers, they're having an open beer bar from 11-12. Hopefully it works because I would love to have another place to drink around here besides Duck Duck. While you're in my hood stop by Nijasol coffee shop on Montrose - best coffee I've had in a very long time.

Also, there's a voter registration party at Crest Hardware on Metropolitan. Loads of free booze and food at that one but it already started so get there quick.

Tonight: Eastern Sweats, HTR, Deserter @ Castle In Hell

When I was 15 I used to go to shows at VFW halls and in random basements. Most of the bands sucked but damn were those shows fun. Then when I moved to West Virginia and was hanging with the local gutter punks I ended up going to alot of those types of shows again. The difference was they were some of the best bands I'd ever seen. Well Castle In Hell is like the Williamsburg version of an old fashioned DIY show. It's a party first and a show second. For a measely $5 you get to hear three good bands while you huddle around a keg. I've been to shows here before and they're fucking fun.

Download: Death Magnetic (Shorter, Better, Cut)

If you've heard Death Magnetic, the new Metallica album, then you know that just about every song has parts that sounds like old Metallica and parts that sound like new Metallica. The old school sounding shit is fucking awesome and the new sounding shit sucks.

So some dude went through each and every song and cut out all of the bullshit and left the thrash intact. Guess what Rick Rubin? This dude should have your job because his version of the album blows yours away man. I mean this album went from a 6 to 9 just by chopping out the obvious garbage. If you only heard this version you would be convinced that Metallica was 100% back to playing balls out metal again. I even suggest to you that you NEVER listen to the official version and just listen to this one. Seriously.

Tonight: Girls & Boys w/ Danny Masterson

Girls & Boys is pretty much the hottest weekly party right now. I mean I haven't actually been there but that's what all my cool hipster friends tell me. And I trust them because they don't have jobs and go out every night while I sit at home and watch Matlock. Tonight the angry dude from That 70's Show is DJing. I met him once and I couldn't figure out if he was cool or a douche - it's so hard to tell the difference these days. Anyway I think it's about time I check this party out, maybe I'll see you there.

Metallica Death Magnetic Leak...Pretty Damn Good!

OK, so anyone who reads BSC knows that I'm hard on Metallica. The reason for this is because they let me down so many times and I used to love them. The first few tracks that were released from the new album Death Magnetic sounded like more of the same crap from St. Anger. Then some store in France accidentally sold the album and now it's up on the internet.

I haven't downloaded it but I have listened to some tracks on YouTube and I have to say - it's awesome! Well, it's nothing ground breaking but it's fucking heavy. Well at least some of the tracks are but that's good enough for me. I mean check out the songs below - pretty much heavier then the Black Album, right? The drums kinda suck but honestly no one expected much from tennis boy anyway. Somehow Rick even got James to stop with the terrible singing crap and got him to just yell.
