Wincing the Night Away
Last weekend was the first Friday event at the Guggenheim, with Telefon Tel Aviv & Dethlab, a tetris showdown at Barcade, a slap war on Lorimer, a hospitable birthday dinner party in Sunset Park, and a noisy show at North Six, featuring some of my buddies in town from Seattle.
Some part of Sunday night was spent huddled in a loft, with three New Hampshire natives, watching Sci-Fi TV shows. There's something about the impending winter that makes me want to listen to Icelandic rock and throw Alien on the Netflix queue. I guess the cold weather increases my ability to suspend disbelief and, yeah, maybe the space cookies help, too.
