"Donnie Darko" screens in Tompkins Square Park. Show up early for free pizza from Two Boots who are celebrating their 25th anniversary at this, and at an upcoming show in East River Park.

"Romeo and Juliet" screening with live music by The Love Show @ Celebrate Brooklyn

"Wet Hot American Summer" screens for free in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Look for the film's co-writers Michael Showalter & David Wain in the crowd. The Stella/State cast-mates are both NYC residents. I mean, maybe they'll want to see it too. DJ Conquerrah will provide some tunes.

High On Fire were scheduled to play Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight, but cancelled their whole tour.

There's a bunch of hip hop shows tonight.

The Arts & Crafts-signed Canadian band Zeus are in town for two shows, starting at the Rock Shop tonight and continuing at Mercury Lounge tomorrow (8/3) with ARMS (tickets). The shows are part of a tour which brings them back to Canada to play Osheaga on Sunday (8/5).

When Wet Hot American Summer screened at McCarren pool a couple years ago Ken Marino and Paul Rudd also showed up.

Helmet + Toadies FTW

What is it with hipsters and their fixation with Wet Hot American Summer? It's a B-movie at best, with that skanky ho that won't shut up in it. Freaking hipsters need to buy some taste from somewhere.

Donnie Darko and free Two Boots pizza ... and you're still thinking?

Anyone know what time Helmet goes on tonight?

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2012 12:59 PM

LULZ we found the one guy who still listens to Helmet

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2012 1:12 PM

Helmet goes on at 8:00 in August, 1991.

It is time for a State reunion!

Anyone knows set times for Washed Out tonight?

"Janeane Garofalo))) is the worst person who has ever lived."

Why the hating son?

Two Boots is good if it's the only thing open at 3AM. Otherwise it's like the 37th best pizza place in NY. Lay off the cornmeal on the bottom guys.

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2012 2:41 PM

37th best? You are clearly exaggerating, unless of course you are writing from your mom's basement in Podunk, Ohio and all you know is Dominoes.

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2012 2:57 PM

No, I've actually tried each of the hundreds of pizza places in the five boroughs and painstakingly graded them all based on a wide variety of categories. Then I used a proprietary algorithm to rank them so I have that information available when I troll internet forums.

Or I could be slightly exaggerating. Either way Two Boots is mediocre.

LULZ "proprietary algorithm"
You've obviously got time to kill before your shift at Foot Locker tonight.

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2012 3:14 PM

Yeah my shift should start right about the time you crawl out of your mom's basement to watch an overrated movie and stuff your face with mediocre pizza.

T5 eats bands alive. the bronx shows is where to see them.

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2012 3:23 PM

i laughed at the algorithm joke, thanks.

but, i like 2 boots. the newman, the dude, the tony clifton?? delicious stuff. not cheap, so if they're giving that shit away, i'd eat it. you couldn't pay me to go to tompkins sq park tonight, tho!

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2012 3:29 PM

Do they actually check for RSVPs for these House of Vans shows?

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2012 3:36 PM

Two boots is busting out their long awaited hummus topping for todays affair.

2:32 outs himself as the one and only Fabulous Flamer! I take back the Foot Locker bit, you're way too stupid to have a job. LULZ on the mom's basement bit. You are one funny guy, really, Keep those AIDS jokes coming.

Only 15 year-olds say LULZ

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2012 4:00 PM

What's with sausages and racism? I mean it's fun to poke fun at those who listen to another genre of music, but this racism crap really is ignorant.

OK, not feeding the trolls, back to work.

LULZ.

"Only 15 year-olds say LULZ"

LULZ apparently not

But I do know that only inbred hillbillies get so wound up over people writing LULZ on anonymous blogs

4:01 - that's someone's really really funny new meme. it just showed up on a sausage-ish thread too, so it's likely just some really funny guy.

^ you jumping around all the threads and spitting hateful spew? I bet you are such a pussy in reality.

LULZ what a flamboyantly flaming display of trandy faggot scarves acting like a damn good band they never listened to was only worth it before their first album or something like that.


"Oh yeah? Well, I once saw Radiohead when they were only playing for like 6 people. Shazzuh!"

Enjoy your shit-filled hummus panini and your post-ironic world discussions (you know, because LCD is no more).
