MOREWOOD @ Norwood - New York


23 April 2010
Last Friday, Brian Rafferty and Ryan Sorkin threw the first of hopefully many parties @ The Norwood Arts Club called "MOREWOOD"  Clever, n'est–ce pas? Held on the third floor of the townhouse with DJ Sean B (SPANK/Best Mate) and a performance from Heather Litteer, it was… well scroll down.

Hot Chip x The XX - New York

22 April 2010
England took over a small part of New York the other night when Hot Chip and opening act The XX played Terminal 5. Both bands stem from London and only shared the bill for this first of two Hot Chip shows, which made the night a tad extra special.

The kinda nerdy, but sexy, boys of Hot Chip kept a fast tempo all night neglecting some of their slower material and sticking to what gets our asses moving. The sextet even played their cover of Shakira’s “She Wolf” which made me howl a bit. Concluding their set with a rather predictable encore of “Ready for the Floor,” they left the sold out crowd sweaty and dehydrated, but very satiated. Luckily, I had a Vitamin Water.
