It's the Brooklyn Way

The Bikes in the Kitchen clique looks way legit (despite the fact that their name is beyond silly), I'm pissed that I wasn't on the ball enough to catch Aa last night. I have tons of respect for peeps doing DIY shows and events in New York cuz it's so damn expensive and cash rules pretty much everything around. Chill house party type shit like this (and of course Todd P) circumvent the whole rock club gentrified ass wackness that is pretty much the standard in Manhattan (ABC's aside) and just keep it rilly real.

I also peeped the art at 11 Spring Street today and it was beyond crazy in a whole bunch of ways. First of all, every piece was right on point with style to spare. Pics to follow once the crew uploads um. The amount of people trying to get in also added to the crazed vibe quite a bit. Apperently The Times gave the event a chi chi write up and ain't nothing get the yuppies off their leather couches like some "underground" shit in a big ass newspaper. They were pretty tame though and looking right in some cases. But I digress, the stuff that actually matters (the art) was outstanding and no amount of yupster bullshit could touch it. Kinda ironic that the same people that were fawning over the anarchist wheat pastings are prolly gonna move into the upscale condos that are replacing the art space. New York neighborhoods are fucked like that sometimes.

So um, that was a lot of slang, enough to choke a librarian.
