  • NEWS: TODD JAMES EXHIBITION

    By Freshness Magazine

    Along with artist Todd “REAS” James‘ immediate family, hundreds of well-wishers, included fellow artistsSteve “ESPO” PowersKAWSTomokazu “Matsu” MatsuyamaJose ParlaEric ElmsSuckadelic, and more packed Gering & Lopez Gallery last evening congratulate Jame’s debut solo exhibition in the U.S. Self-taught, Todd James’ extensive art works crossed across genres and mediums. Best known by his graffiti tag REAS, the New York City-base artist was instrumental at the height of the graffiti culture during the 1980s, which gave raise to other artists like FUTURA, Keith Haring, Kenny Scharf, and more… Later, James’ cartoonish design was translated onto other genres, from The Source magazine’s original logo, cover art for the Beastie Boys, to more recently, a collaboration collection with Stussy. In this, his solo exhibition, titled Make My Burden Lighter, James explored further the fallacy of the so-called “American Life”.  [Read More]

  • NEWS: CONTINENTAL GET LOUD AGAIN

    By Adam Rath – NY Press

    Before it doled out a fiveshots-for-$10 special designed to lure in passing college kids, Continental hosted some of New York’s most infamous punk shows. From 1991 when the club opened until 2006 when the plug was pulled on live music,The Ramones, Agnostic Front and The Cro- Mags were just some of the seminal local bands to take the dive bar’s stage. Fifteen years after opening the club, though, owner Trigger stopped hosting live shows in favor of pulling in a crowd that would pay for its drinks and enable him to keep the doors open. After more than three years of silence—save the sound that one too many Jaeger shots brings out of a New School freshman—Trigger is bringing music back to Continental for a onenight-only show featuring some of the club’s best-loved alumnus.

  • NEWS: R.I.P. TEDDY PENDERGRASS

    By Jon Pareles – NY Times

    Teddy Pendergrass, the Philadelphia soul singer whose husky, potent baritone was one definition of R&B seduction in the 1970s but whose career was transformed in 1982 when he was severely paralyzed in an auto accident, died on Wednesday night in Bryn Mawr, Pa. He was 59. [Read More]

  • DAVID MANCUSO, THE LOFT BY TIM LAWRENCE

    By Tim Lawrence

    Like a soup or a bicycle or Wikipedia, the Loft is an amalgamation of parts that are weak in isolation, but joyful, revelatory and powerful when joined together. The first ingredient is the desire of a group of friends to want to get together and have some fun. The second element is the discovery of a room that has good acoustics and is comfortable for dancing, which means it should have rectangular dimensions, a reasonably high ceiling, a nice wooden floor and the possibility of privacy. The next building block is the sound system, which is most effective when it is simple, clean and warm, and when it isn’t pushed more than a fraction above 100 decibels (so that people’s ears don’t become tired or even damaged). After that, the room should be decorated, with balloons and a mirror ball offering a cheap and timeless solution, and because the party might last a long time, and because some friends might be hungry, a healthy spread of food and drink should also be prepared. Finally ? and this really is the last thing to get right, and can only follow once everything else is in place ? the friends will need someone to bring along some dance records. After that, it’s party time. [Read More]
