Union Pool (which has no shows tonight) is collecting cans of food. You bring a can of food (that has been sitting in your kitchen for years) and they give you a Budweiser! Poster below. It runs now through the end of January.

The Brooklyn Night Bazaar is underway.

Check out This Week in Indie for more.

What else?

BOYCOTT DJ SETS

@5:34 - You are right, they somehow became the most popular hipster band on the planet despite releasing only three listenable songs in a ten-year existence

Not to mention having a frontman who can't sing or play an instrument

Any early thoughts/feedback on the Bazaar? I don't live in the Williamsburg but thought it might be fun to check out.

LCD was special.

KCMU was special.

KEXP whores themselves out to whatever Pitchfork preaches. They are most definitely not special.

James Murphy should look into a second career in sausage rock. He already has the double chin. He is just a black t-shirt away. I think he could be successful.

He should stop using the Strokes microphone. That's Julian's thing.

Wow, Simon Cowell got fat!

Personally I found it hard to walk out of The National show while sleeping. It's not as easy as it may seem. You must master your environment, grasshopper.

James Murphy isn't all that overweight. He's just very beefy. If you meet him and actually stand in front of him you can see that. But I guess its understandable that you judgmental anorexic hipster fucks don't get that there is a difference...
