Ra Ra Riot

In late January the guard post at the top of the stairs in the Kimmel Center was eliminated.

But now, only a short month later, the guard is back because of the recent protest by Take Back NYU.

The NYU Department of Public Safety has reinstated the guard at Kimmel -- as well as an additional guard on the 12th floor of Bobst Library -- in order to increase security after the protests.

"These stop-gap measures were taken out of prudence and caution following ... [the] events at Kimmel," said Jules Martin, NYU's vice president of Public Safety. [NYU Washington Square News]

Just a few weeks after the NYU students refused to get out of the Kimmel Center cafeteria, Marnie Stern, Ra Ra Riot, A Place To Bury Strangers and Apache Beat shared a bill at a concert in the same building. Here are pictures of two of the bands that played the show last night (3/5)....

I need to start going to these shows just for whack off material.

she is VERY hot ... at one point she switched out the cello for the keyboard... and she had some awesome vocals as well ... the total package!

I don't think it's derogatory necessarily to comment on the beauty of this woman. She clearly knows that she's hot stuff and she projects that. Makes for an enthralling show. Talent and beauty. Can't beat it.

In fact, all of these folks are pretty good lookin'. Singer could use a shave though.

I'd hit it... you know... the pita that is.

Apache Beat & A Place to Bury Strangers were pretty awesome.

Posted by Seashell Shanna | March 7, 2009 12:57 PM

She is just deafeningly hot.

Sad she couldn't afford one whole cello, though.
