The Barclays Center opens tonight with the first of EIGHT Jay-Z shows. Any guesses on surprise guests? Are you going?

Of course, not everybody is happy about Barclays and Big Development in Brooklyn so expect protesters outside, not to mention a free screening of documentary Battle for Brooklyn that screens at Dean Street Playground Ball Field at 8 PM, a mere half block from the arena.

Jay-Z's DJ, Young Guru, and Talib Kweli will be DJing at Free Candy (905 Atlantic Ave) after the Barclays show tonight. Talib, who's on at midnight, will also be DJing earlier at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester with Questlove and Q-Tip for the "Soul Planetarium" party that's happening there.

Arrested Development are celebrating the 20th Anniversary of their debut album, 3 Years, 5 Months & 2 Days in the Life Of, at BB King's tonight by playing it front-to-back. Tickets are still available and there are a couple classic videos from that album below.

Twin Shadow plays Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight with Niki & the Dove, while his former bassist Russ Manning performs at Rush Midnight at Cameo right down N. 6th St. with Splash and Rarechild (tix). Then later tonight, Twin Shadow will DJ his own afterparty at Brooklyn Bowl which is free entry with your MHOW ticket or $8 without.

Tonight Patti Smith will be discussing Andy Warhol at the Met as part of the museum's Regarding Warhol exhibition which just opened. It's sold out but you can stream audio from the talk live at 7 PM.

I am spectacularly amused by the anger this new arena is causing. 1) area is gentrified by out of towners, pricing out people who have lived there for decades. 2). New arena is built there without the community's approval, seriously affecting the feel of their new neighborhood, making many regret their grossly inflated long-term mortgages. Absolutely priceless.

3:24 - ya know, I didn't put all those pieces together the way you just laid it out there. That is hilarious, and a bit of poetic justice! Three cheers for the 1%! Huzzah!

Why the fuck is Kitty Pryde playing 285 Kent? Shouldn't that show be at Arlene's Grocery or Wicked Willy's or some shit?

It's hear, hear - not here, here. Jeebus.

3:24 PM You are aware that the majority of the younger materialistic yuppies that live in those new buildings or condos & in other parts of the city are most often East coast trust funders.

4:52 - is there a dash in "anal retentive"?

Posted by Anonymous | September 28, 2012 6:50 PM

Sounds more like Constellation which is rad. The last one seemd a little too clean and less intense
