Hospitality at Brooklyn Bowl, 8/31/2012 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)

Much like the Etsy's store, tech mag WIRED has a pop-up store during the holiday season (its eighth year) and theirs is located at 534 Broadway at Price St. in SoHo. In addition to featuring loads of the latest gear and gadgets, the WIRED store is also hosting events and live music. Tonight (12/6), Hospitality will play a free show and the event, which includes "beer, beverages, & light bites," goes from 7 - 10 PM. You do need to RSVP. As an extra incentive to get there early, the first 100 people through the door get a free "Moxie showerhead from KOHLER that streams music right into your shower." The WIRED store has a few other events but, apart from a "DIY workshop" on Saturday (12/8) they are all listed as "invite only" with no other details. Seems Scroogish to us.

If you can't swing by the WIRED store tonight, don't forget Hospitality will play Bowery Ballroom on January 10 with Household and tickets are still available. We're also giving a pair away and details are below, along with a stream of their new single, "Monkey."

yes, that's Matisyahu & Tokyo Police Club...
Tokyo Police Club

Tokyo Police Club and We Barbarians played an invite-only show at the Wired Store on 12/15, much like Ra Ra Riot did a week earlier. It was the Foundations Artist Management Holiday Party and was marked by a surprise appearance from Matisyahu who joined TPC for a cover of his own "Miracle (The Hanukkah Song)". Ayad and Michael from Passion Pit didn't play the party, but they did introduce TPC after jokingly introducing themselves at Foundations interns.

After the Wired Store show, Andrew St. Clair joined TPC at Nancy Whiskey in TriBeCa where they played We Barbarians in a gentlemanly game of shuffleboard.

Matisyahu played a string of Hannukah related shows, including four NYC shows recently, and has a show coming up at Mercury Lounge. TPC have a tour coming up with Two Door Cinema Club which will hit Terminal 5. Passion Pit are playing Wellmont Theater on 12/30 and 12/31.

Carlo Vutera

Tauntauns were a species of omnivorous reptomammals who were indigenous to the icy planet of Hoth. Tauntauns were commonly used as pack animals during the Rebel Alliance's stay at Hoth. Tauntauns were also used as patrol mounts when it was learned that the Rebel Alliance's own vehicles could not cope with the cold very well. [Wookiepedia]

King Khan & BBQ Show

"The Wired Store is the ultimate pop up Christmas boutique. They have every tricked out electric gizmo that one never needs but thinks he does. I'll take one of each, thanks. Guests drank and played with toys and video games. Epson was taking pictures in the front to show off their high quality color printer.

Anthology Recordings showcased a performance by King Khan and BBQ Show." [Socially Superlative]

It was King Khan & BBQ's third NYC show in less than a week. More pictures from yesterday's store party, below...
