    The crowd thinned out before the last band at Brooklyn Bowl on Thursday night. This made no sense, by normal gig logic, because of course the best band — Cymbals Eat Guitars — came last.

It was a five-band show of new indie rock sponsored by Insound, the Brooklyn music distributor and online retailer of vinyl albums, T-shirts and other cool things, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary. And it happened at Williamsburg’s newest rock palace: novel and g-g-gorgeous, a place built to satisfy your desires for grass-fed beef and tipsy recreation. If you can stand any more leisure, there’s live music there too. [Read More]

    The police said his body was found in his seventh-floor apartment in SoHo about 5:30 p.m. after friends had tried unsuccessfully to reach him for days. The chief police spokesman, Paul J. Browne, said the police did not suspect foul play. [Read More]
