    It's tempting, though the poster features four words I never want to see side-by-side: Hosted by Matt Pinfield.

    I know several friends going to that, it would be very cool. Having hung out in New Brunswick in the late 80's and early 90's (yes, I'm that old), unfortunately that dipshit Matt Pinfield was impossible to avoid. You'd leave one cool bar, The Roxy to get away from him, and he'd follow you to The Melody 1/2 an hour later.

    I saw Spiritualized twice when they toured that album back in the day, and it was stunning. Really stoked for this show, supposedly the last time they're gonna play it.

    Hello New York type people. Anyone have any bed/sofa/floor space that me and the wife could use for 10 days in Sept (17-27 or know anyone who could help)? Happy to reimburse you with some $$$.

    If not, any legit decent websites worth trying.

    Been looking at craigslist, but everything reasonably priced shouts scam. The English in most of the replies to my enquiries has been sub-Nigerian phishing scam.

    Sonic Youth playing for free in Prospect Park tonight. Any of my fellow New Yorkers making the scene?

    I'll be in New York City March 30th - April 3rd.

    Can someone recommend some good beer bars? Places that serve good microbrews, IPAs, Stouts, etc.

    Crispin mentioned Motor City Bar. What other places should I check out?

    What constitutes "nighttime hours" for the subway? I'm trying to figure out the best way to get to/from Brooklyn Masonic Temple...

    I'll think more, Matt, but you should go to the Brooklyn Brewery for a tour. They have them Saturdays and Sundays for free at certain times throughout the day. I haven't been yet, so I can't attest to its quality, but I do like their beers.

    I think after 12 is nighttime hours. Sometimes, before that, I'll get on the 2 and 3 and they'll already be running local though. It should be easy to go to Brooklyn. You won't be on nighttime hours yet. Afterwards, when you are leaving Brooklyn, the trains might just be making all the local stops (and it might take a while for a train to show up). The Masonic Temple is not a long walk from the A, C, 2, 3, 4, 5 - those trains can take you anywhere in Manhattan, pretty much.

    The subway terms "local" and "express" always confuse me.

    I feel like it's important to mention that going north and south in BK is nearly impossible via train.

    Also, if you somehow end up in a part of Brooklyn where there are L-Stations like I did last Saturday, you will be disappointed to find that some of them have no trains to Manhattan at night, and you'll have to journey toward Williamsburg until you find one.

    Awesome. Thanks!

    Also, Crispin and I might be hitting up opening day at Yankee Stadium if any of you guys are interested.

    For the East Village I recommend TenEleven at 11th Street and Avenue C. Good jukebox, good alcohol selections. And when we got sick of the jukebox the people at the bar let me run a playlist from my Droid. They have nights where they play cult/weird movies on the projector in the back room.

    This. The brewery is very small and the tour doesn't take much time, but they have a really big drinking hall connected to it where they serve all their beers. The bartenders were fantastic when I was there last and they gave me four free pints.

    For Brooklyn I recommend Fette Sau for grilled meats, beer and bourbon. The nearby GoodCo is fun, too, and if you go there Sunday nights Nando (who posts sometimes on these boards) DJs a karaoke night which is very fun.

    Barcade can get crowded by is also fun. They have a ton of great beers on tap and more arcade video games than you could possibly play.

    I will be in New York and thereabouts from March 18 through March 27. Heyyy New York.

    Pretty especially psyched for the Glenn Ligon exhibit at the Whitney, Lynda Benglis at MoMA, Godspeed, J Macis/Kurt Vile, Sebadoh, and eating good pizza.
