it's big eyes. not bug eyes. though i'd happily see a band called bug eyes.

this is confusing: When I hit the link for Patti Smith at the 92St Y for tonight it goes to a previous Brooklyn Vegan page which says that this event is on Feb 16. When I hit the tickets link it goes to a Feb 16 page. However, further down the Brooklyn Vegan page the listing gives tonight Jan 6 at this venue as one of her tour dates. Further, the 92St Y site does not list anything for Patti Smith for tonight but has the Feb 16 date.

What gives?

Been a dry past couple of months as far as shows go

Damn, I saw "Grashopper" listed for Silent Barn and got excited thinking it was the Mercury Rev Grasshopper, not some unoriginal hipster.

Badger1:29: Actually, it's starting to dry NOW. No interesting shows lined up for me until maybe March or so.

I hear you, man. I'm just tired of the wall to wall coverage of Titus Andronicus playing their zillionth show in NYC and no new bands for 2010 that were worth a damn.

I don't think the Patti Smith show ever got postponed. I think it was always on Feb 16th, which is why the link on this (today's) page goes to to the Dec 31 Brooklyn Vegan page that originally says Feb 16th,

So why is this still listed on today;s page as happening tonight?

Badger2:36: Very true. But I think the Yo La Tengo coverage was even worse. Ugh...

Posted by Anonymous | January 6, 2011 5:12 PM

yeah i know, the annual fee of $0.00 to access this site and all of its info (most of it not listed centrally anywhere else) really is exorbitant and gives us the right to bitch when we don't like something that's posted.

Posted by shut up already | January 6, 2011 5:25 PM

5:25. Geez. How could I forget? Yeah the Tengo coverage trumped everything. Thankfully we have almost made it through an entire winter without having to hear about Matt & Kim.

Posted by Badger | January 6, 2011 8:01 PM

@5:25, you're right, it is a privilege to read this site, provided by BV out of the goodness of his heart.

RE; Mr./Mrs./Ms. shut up already

I do not agree that Brooklynvegan is free, on this comment page there are eight advertisements. Being within eye view of a particular demographic is a quantifiable commodity. IE there is a price on your eyes, You do not pay with cash or credit but with something more valuable yourself.
