Happy Holidays! I take on more than I can handle. That results in a lot of unposted content. In the name of catching up, while also taking it easy during this final week of the year, here's some of that lost material.

Jason Trachtenburg & Rebecca Schiffman
showpaper benefit

On Saturday, September 26, the Red Hook-based gallery and artist collective Kidd Yellin, where I am an "artist-in-residence," hosted a benefit concert for ShowPaper, a free bi-monthly print-only newspaper which lists all-ages music and art events in the tri-state area and features a work of art on each cover.

The event was a collaborative mix of musicians and artists. Shilpa Ray (sans all-male "Happy Hookers") was backed by friends- including Kendrick Strauch (of the recently dissolved Harlem Shakes which featured my fellow Dalton alum, Lexi Benaim). Jason Trachtenburg played keyboard on two of my songs and Rachel Trachtenburg played drums for Kendrick Strauch, before the the Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players' own set, which also featured Tina Trachtenburg playing the slide projector. Sarah and Michelle Cagianese opened the concert with pretty songs using vocal and cello harmonies, and Your Nature closed the evening with a hard rockin' bang! - Rebecca Schiffman

That space was really awesome, especially the mummy-like glass sculpture things.

no more anonymous loser comments in 2010, please for the love of god start making us register.

this website is a corrosive embarrassment for the NYC scene, and it doesn't have to be.

get rid of the anonymous commenting, Brooklyn Vegan Dave! No one takes this site seriously and you work too hard for that to be the case. The comments are the problem.

I take it seriously and like many bands he posts and of course theres some bands that are just fake and pretentious also. Whats embarrassing is the talk in the little "scenes" and at shows when bands play. This site has nothing to do with that gossipy shit talk, because that exists in NYC more than any city and B. Vegan has nothing to do with that.
