    Also, recommending places to eat in NY is incredibly difficult because it's so damn big and every place claims to be the "best _____ in New York".

    Also Brooklynvegan.com will let you know who's playing and does a comprehensive job.
    yeah, brooklynvegan is really the best site for shows and other random events. http://www.ohmyrockness.com/ is good too

    So, does anyone have any recommendations for CMJ shows?

    Regardless of whether you're attending or not, I'm on the lookout for new bands and I'm only familiar with 5-15 out of the hundreds that are playing this weekend

    I haven't heard very much about it, but I remember someone mentioning an experimental mini-music festival going on soon (With Genesis P'Orridge and the like). Anyone have news on this?

    If you like Vanessa's Dumplings, you should also try Cafe Himalaya in the East Village on E 1st St. & 1 Ave. Majorly cheap (around $6 per person for dinner entrees), and the best thing on their menu is the momo (Tibetan dumplings). They're BYOB, and will let you sit forever and drink chai or whatnot if you so choose.

    Alchemy you should report back on that Dirty Projectors show. I will be seeing them at Bowery Ballroom because MHOW was sold out by the time I checked.

    I think you mean Performa, which I posted to the Art Thread, and then was reposted to the Noise Thread?

    Edit: here's the link to the Mike Kelley-curated two day experimental music component to the month long festival.

    Here's something I've always wondered: do people in NYC dine out more than others?

    If so, is it because it's difficult grocery shopping without a car, or maybe it's difficult to cook in such a small kitchen.

    How often, about, would you say you eat out (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) each week.

    I can tell you that I eat out maybe twice a week (Friday dinner and possibly a weekend lunch). I don't eat breakfast, I bring my lunch to work, and I cook nearly every single night.

    I'm just curious.

    I know a folks who have lived in Manhattan for years and have perfectly good kitchens that they have never even touched except maybe to make a pot of coffee or to reheat some leftovers. Friends who live in the outer boroughs tend to cook more for whatever reason -- I'm not sure if that's indicative of an overall trend.

    I think it's a combination of factors: grocery shopping is not that difficult, but there are just so so many good cheap takeout and delivery places in any neighborhood. And yes, I do think the smallness of the space means that less people will entertain in, and more will go out to meet others at a restaurant or bar.

    When I lived in Manhattan, I sure ate lot of takeout. But mostly that was because anytime I cooked, the smell would linger in my tiny apartment for days and days.

    Yeah, that's the one. I think I'll give it a shot.

    I still say we organize a Royksopp East Meetup. Carry on the silver/black theme

    Thinking of working for an NGO, Jeff? Funnily enough, a friend of mine just started the graduate program in global communications at the American University in Paris. She got accepted to Columbia, AUP and two other colleges I'm having trouble recalling. She ended up choosing AUP partly for the experience of living in Paris of course. So far she seems to love it.

    Hey NYC - Anyone gonna hit the library on December 8?

    THE VELVET UNDERGROUND
    Lou Reed with Maureen ‘Mo’ Tucker, Doug Yule & David Fricke
    Tuesday, December 8, 2009
    7:00pm in the Celeste Bartos Forum


    Stephen A. Schwarzman Building
    Fifth Avenue & 42nd Street / Enter at 42nd Street
    In the historic ferment of Sixties rock, the Velvet Underground were the perfect band in the right city, New York, at a crucial time.
    For five years – 1965 to 1970 – singer-songwriter and guitarist Lou Reed, bassist and viola player John Cale, guitarist Sterling Morrison and drummer Maureen Tucker, with the German vocalist Nico and bassist Doug Yule (who replaced Cale in 1968), broadcast the real life of their home town – the sex, drugs and art; the furious street energies, hidden pleasures and desperate romance – in an unprecedented pop music of vivid storytelling and transgressive excitement.
    On stage and on their four influential studio albums, the Velvets invented the many futures of rock – punk, drone, free improvisation, lyric candor – in songs and performances that made the group notorious, with the pivotal help of their early manager and mentor, Andy Warhol. Legendary status came later, after the group broke up and Reed and Cale went on to bold prolific solo careers.
    Today, the Velvet Underground are the stars they always deserved to be – the Beatles of New York – with a rich and still mysterious story that continues to unfold in the new visual collection, The Velvet Underground: New York Art, edited by Johan Kugelberg, and, in this unprecedented reunion of Reed, Tucker and Yule, on Tuesday, December 8th, LIVE from the NYPL!

    I just hope Lou lives up to his reputation and behaves like a complete asshole.

    The space only holds 500 people, so whether this is just a lecture or some kind of performance, I'm pretty stoked.

    I was supposed to be in Miami this "holiday season", but the event I was to attend might be getting delayed until next year. If so, I'll be spending Christmas and NYE in NY! God, I hope it comes together! What are the quintessential NY Christmas/NYE must-do's besides Rockefeller Xmas Tree, Times Square Ball Drop, Broadway shows and getting drinks with Tim, Crispin and Gonshman?
