Babs at Barclays, 10/11/2012 (via @cpcayaba)
Babs

Barbara Streisand played her first of two, and first-ever Brooklyn show at the Barclays Center last night. Those in attendance missed the live Vice President debate, but still got a taste of politics at the show:

"I love Big Bird and I hope no one tells Romney how to get to Sesame Street ... or to Pennsylvania Avenue," cracked Streisand, according to the Huffington Post.

Streisand also said of Romney: "He's a good actor. [He's] a chameleon. It's great."

Babs plays the new venue, that only Jay-Z played before her, again Saturday night.

Meanwhile: "Barclays Center VIP Lounge Issued Health Violation For Lack Of Toilet Paper."

Check out some pictures from Dark Dark Dark & Angel Olsen's recent Chicago show. Angel comes to NYC in November. Dark Dark Dark is in NYC tonight (and Saturday).

Don Caballero are releasing a live LP, titled Gang Banged With A Headache, And Live, on November 27 via Joyful Noise.

Dillinger Escape Plan frontman Greg Puciato says, "Nobody's doing us a favor by buying our shirt after they took our album."

We've got a couple Smiths/Moz superfans on staff (Tim Griffin in our Austin office; Bill here in NYC) but both pale to the adoration Dave Hill has for Morrissey. Read his account of this week's Radio City show.

Conspiracy theory time: Gawker asks, "Did Nirvana fan Paul Ryan steal his 'Bean' anecdote from Kurt Cobain?"

And while on the same theme: Friday Night Lights television series creator Peter Berg wants Mitt Romney to stop using its "Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can't Lose" slogan. But FNL author Buzz Bissinger takes the other side.

Glad to see an old yenta like Babs completely out-did Jay Z in terms of production values. That set looks original and awesome! Good for her.

Easy to have a big production when you're charging $700 for tickets. Pathetic old hag.

People are willing to pay 700 to see her. How does that make her pathetic?
