RZA gets busy @ Studio B, NYC - Feb 22, 2008 (Tod Seelie)
RZA @ Studio B

* The Academy Awards
* W.A.S.P is playing Irving Plaza
* The Magnetic Fields are @ Town Hall
* Chrisette Michele is at Highline Ballroom
* Headlights & Evangelicals are @ Mercury Lounge
* Wye Oak, Pontiak & The Selmanaires are playing Cake Shop
* Super Furry Animals & Times New Viking are playing Bowery
* Dalek, Russian Circles, & Young Widows are playing Maxwell's
* Atlas Sound, White Rainbow & Valet @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
* Demetri Martin, Will Ferrell & Zach Galifianakis @ Radio City Music Hall

For a Sunday there are a lot of good shows going on, not to mention the Oscars. Given all the competition, I'm guessing the Cake Shop show featuring one of Merge Records' latest signings unfortunately won't be getting much attention. More Wye Oak tour dates below.

Sorry for taking a few days off of "What's going on" posts. What else?

RZA was fun.

Black Dice last night was great, too. They sold out Market Hotel.

The girl in the picture above who looks like she farted is super hot. Anyone know her or have a myspace for her? Id fuck her six ways to sunday. Much better than the Rza would.

"he girl in the picture above who looks like she farted"

The one in the camo pants or the one on the far left? The one on the far left kinda looks like she farted and is enjoying the release of the tension in her anus.

I like how there's the one girl in the background standing on stage with her arms crossed looking bored. Now that is how you know you are too cool, when being on stage with RZA bores you.
