ESG
ESG

ESG--four Scroggins sisters plus various percussionists--formed in the South Bronx in the late '70s, and went from covering the Stones and Rufus to recording for Tony Wilson's Factory Records label. The band's uniquely minimalist funk/post-punk sound soon caught on in clubs and dance palaces like the Paradise Garage. Decades later, songs such as "Moody" and "UFO" still resonate, partly because they've been sampled hundreds of times. Alas, ESG, which reformed in the '90s, has announced its Estrojam show will be its last [they lied].

MAGAZINE: GO SWOON OVER MIAMI'S HOTTIES. NEW YORK'S, EH, NOT SO MUCH.

New York City has Broadway, superb shopping, the finest art galleries, the most diverse and stylish denizens - but if you want hot-looking people, you gotta go to Miami.

So says Travel Leisure magazine, which teamed up with CNN Headline News and asked 600,000 travelers to rank America's top 25 cities in 45 categories.

Somehow, New York - the fashion capital of the country, home to supermodels, actors and rock stars - came in ninth in the best-looking people category, behind Minneapolis-St. Paul.

And Miami's residents were rated mucho caliente, although New York was tops in the people-watching category. [SNIP]

Gotham was dead last in the affordability and peace and quiet categories, and ranked 24th in the friendliest category - ahead of Los Angeles, which also has the worst traffic and least intelligent people, the magazine said.

First place for friendliness went to Charleston, S.C.

Some of the other rankings were, to put it kindly, somewhat suspicious. [SNIP]

Does Hurricane Katrina-shattered New Orleans really have more "destination restaurants" and better live music?

How did Portland, Ore., place first in the public transportation/pedestrian friendly category when it doesn't even have a subway? How could San Francisco have more noteworthy neighborhoods when that pretty but piddly city is smaller than many New York neighborhoods?

10PM SCARCE: A&M recording artists from the early 90's have reformed. Providence/NYC based noisy pop from the grunge era. Drummer Joe Propatire (Bevis Frond, Silver Apples, Velocet) shares apartment with A Bunch of Girls drummer Jeremy O'Brien (Kreisor) and above ABOG practice space. Hearing said practices inspired this gig together.

If anyone was planning on going to that MInitek thing tonight, it got moved to Studio B. Apparently the right permits were not in place and it got shut down last night way early.
