Rebecca Moore @ Tonic, NYC - April 14, 2007 (more)
Rebecca Moore

I realize I already wrote that the CBGB protester is Rebecca Moore, and I did think it was weird that she brought up Tonic, but it wasn't until just now that I realized she is REBECCA MOORE Rebecca Moore.

rebecca is a musician who has a couple releases on the knitting factory label. she also used to date jeff buckley. why don't you go listen to tapes 'n tapes 'n then go jump off a bridge. idiot.

not that i'm a fan of manhattan turning into condo island but rebecca moore really needs to realize that her nyc is dead. no amount of bitching is going to bring it back.

When she was younger and with Jeff she was beautiful but she unlike a fine wine has not aged well.

and it's why a dumbass like yourself shouldn't be allowed to post.

why do i always confuser her with the girl from the dambuilders?

Posted by grace6697 | April 10, 2008 5:46 PM

Okay I realize she looks pretty pathetic...

...but there's something cool about this child of major players in the New York Avant-Garde art scene actually standing up for the homogenization of the city and seeing it as her duty instead of just bitching about it.

Mind you, I still think this protest is on the dumb side, and it's not like she's contributed anything really artistically inspiring herself.... but I hope people realize this is more then just a musician bitching about losing another venue for her to play her crappy music.

anon,Manhattan has already turned into condo island.Open for business for every yipster and his clones.Brooklyn is not tha different (aka rebuilt for the rich and the shallow).Any child of the 80's remembers such a cool NYC full of art and creativity in the 80's.That was before Bulliani destoyed it and Doomberg and his billion dollar over-developement loving tuchas rebuilt it.Manhattan went from the capital of arts and fashion to the capital of yuppyville.

This one doesn't. Money ruled NYC back then, too. Did you forget that decade's Wall Street boom?

Posted by Anonymous | April 10, 2008 11:41 PM

But the Wall Street boom did not cause a gradual yuppie takeover of an entire borough.

funny how she looks just as style conscious (expensive boots, etc) as the boutique she's supposedly protesting. oh, the hipster liberal paradox, confusion and guilt...

When you're wealthy and living off a trust fund, you have time for this kind of stuff.

Did the Fluxus artists really make so much money that they could give their kids trust funds?

Other than Yoko of course....

AM New York has an amusing front page story this weekend called 'Bloom Town' that some of you might enjoy.I guess this is what happens when a businessman with a net worth of 11.5 Billion dollars becomes the mayor of such a big city.The last quote says it all:"You can some up the Bloomberg legacy in two words:luxury city."

this question is for the ladies on this blog. how can you tell if boots are expensive by looking at them when they are worn by rebecca moore?

Posted by this isa question | April 13, 2008 12:55 PM

Making/having/spending money is not a problem when you give your time/money/energy to social issues. Its when you get loaded and forget about everything you ever stood for. This may be a small issue to some, but at least she's consistently doing something productive. Its better than us trying to comment on a blog about what her boots cost.

sigh - of course no matter what a girl is doing or trying to achieve with others, her looks will be attacked. Thankfully, i don't obsess about that or aging. So old hat. Be careful those who dwell in that kind of comment... bad karma. It usually ends up coming back at you. You ended up surrounded by people who do the same thing...

My boots are vegan from mooshoos; I just wanted something utilitarian i could throw on, and i don't wear animals so that was what i could find. They were not as cheap as i would like but they were not high end, believe me. I work in a factory and am not wealthy. No trust fund, either. Again, mean comments that i feel immune to - but i do want to set records straight when there is misinformation. And it bums me out that in 2008 there are those who focus on clothes and looks as a sign of worth.

Sadly, my father, post his death in 93, is only beginning to get recognition for his vast efforts to cover what was a very small, very marginalized and very non-wealthy art movement... it wasn't glamorous.

Anyone can take a bad picture. I guess I do look like my face is falling off here.... lol. And it is funny people say my clothes look expensive cause i look pretty unfancy here...but if i wanted to be glamorous, i would not be doing activist work. anyway thanks to the posters who kindly defend my honor a bit. I appreciate it and send love and solidarity. Stay strong as this is not the end of rebellion in nyc; just the beginning.

Rebecca Moore is what all of you should strive to be- an intensely creative, talented, intelligent, genuine and strong woman who has a deep, driven concern for her community.

It is people like her (throughout history) who have made the east village and LES a desirable place to live, work and congregate.

When we lose these people (not jut artist but also ethnic groups) to high rents, etc we are losing the very essence of NYC and the reason many of us moved here in the first place.

As far as attacking a woman for her looks or age, you people should be ashamed of your crude, ignorant, sexist fashion magazine fed ideals.

Botox may cure YOuR physical wrinkles but it wont fill in the entrenched creases of your education or your souls.

Women like Rebecca Moore are rare these days and give me so much hope/pride/sense of empowerment! You go grrl!!!

While searching the internet for a not-quite-related subject, I stumbled upon this page and was shocked by the negative comments which, I suspect, were mostly written by the same person.

Most are posted by "anonymous" or some version of that...Like weak, shameful KKK members hiding behind a sheet.

Instead of writing Fifth-grade-level comments about a person's looks or boots or some other ridiculous thing like that, consider the subject at hand. Consider the protest. Consider the Disneyfication of all of Manhattan. Consider concepts beyond those that you encounter in the National Enquirer.

And most important - consider the notion that you dear "Anonymous" - as you sit behind your computer and post nasty, ignorant, pathetic comments behind your cloak of anonymity - are the microsom of the stupidity that has ruined America today...

Howdy- MAN- the NYC I knew is gone, Just like the Pretenders Song...nice try though you guys- holy crap- the rich took over, no way I could afford to live there now- in the 80's it was still sort of affordable...what's up with the a-holes saying hurtful things about Rebecca here? BAD KARMA! Lord- she is a beauty. Why do people have to be so hateful like that? Weird ass world we live in I guess.
