Park Slope, long the territory of strollers and food co-ops, now has an honest-to-goodness neighborhood rock (and rap and electronica) club. Housed in a 5,000 square foot, former 99 Cent Discount Store, Southpaw brings Manhattan-caliber talent (Sleater-Kinney, Slick Rick, TV on the Radio) to Kings County, and serves cheap beer in a luxe, lounge-like atmosphere. Don't miss monthly hip-hop dance party the Rub; it's legendary.
This diverse Queens-based collective of mostly Colombian musicians mixes African-based styles like champeta and porro brass band music with postpunk jazz reminiscent of '80s British groups like Pigbag and Rip Rig + Panic. The octet's deep,... More »
It’s hard not to love Fred Da Godson, New York City’s lone representative on hip-hop mag XXL’s February list of 2011’s top freshman rappers. Ten months later, the Bronx native hasn’t broken out to national audiences in the manner of classmates... More »
An experimental intelligence resides in the upper headspace of this 10-piece salsa clasica group hailing from (of all places) Richmond, Virginia. Formed by a pair of displaced Puerto Ricans, Bio Ritmo modulates the clave with retrofuturist keys,... More »
"Brass bands are inherently subversive in America," declares Slavic Soul Party bandleader and bass-drummer Matt Moran, between bites of his portobello sandwich at Korzo, the Hungarian outpost in Park Slope. "It's a rejection of convenience:... More »
I had fun at the Punk Vinyl Festival at Southpaw. The punk DJ was good so it was fun to look threw the album art and check out some punk history. I was tempted to pop for some vinyl mementos, but my friend Richie said I really should own a turntable before I pop for vinyl. Sane drink prices, noisy punk music, sexy punk crowd = fun. Richie says Southpaw has good punk shows so we're going back to hear some live music one night. By chance, there was a street fair right outside where we saw a punk band with no guitars, just tuba, drums and trumpet. Okay. Then we chowed on excellent mushroom quiche at Yona's Delight (yonasdelights.com). It's all good!
The one-year-old music venue SOUTHPAW got its name from its left-handed owners. The downstairs decor is further evidence in the pride of il mancino--plastered to the walls are more than 100 cards of famous (Reggie Jackson), infamous (Bill Buckner), and inconsequential (Willie Hernandez) lefties. Fun fact: the word southpaw is derived from the direction left-handed pitchers face when on the mound. More »
Look in the mirror, pal: You're too old to ride the L train. Good thing SOUTHPAW, a huge shiny new rock club, has opened in the former 99-cent store across from the Key Food parking lot. With Maxwell's guy Toddophonic Todd Abramson handling the booking, you'll soon find a reason to check out the tiered lounge areas, wide Bowery Ballroom-style front apron, and puppet-show stage, complete with curtain. Hopefully Todd'll find some acts that can be heard over the roar of the X'ers hooking up at... More »
