From the NYTimes:
“Three weeks ago a pair of former burlesque performers at the Box, a downtown theater/cabaret/hot spot, posted photographs on their page at MySpace.com of what they said was its filthy dressing room. The women added a litany of explicit charges about the personal habits and business practices of one of the owners, Simon Hammerstein. “The inhumane treatment of the artists and employees at the Box is appalling,” began the posting by the pair, who call themselves the Porcelain TwinZ.
A week later, on Sept. 15, a committee of Community Board 3, which covers the Lower East Side, voted to deny recommending the renewal of the Box’s liquor license because of complaints about noise.
It seemed that the club, which when it opened less than two years ago was labeled the savior of hip Manhattan nightlife, might be too controversial for its own good, and could even be in peril.” [Read More]
From the NYTimes:
“Five works by the elusive graffiti artist Banksy and other pieces by street artists failed to sell at an auction in London over the weekend, Bloomberg News reported. Only 74 of the 270 lots at Lyon & Turnbull’s sale found buyers. The poor sales resulted in part from Banksy’s refusal earlier in the week to authenticate five stencil and spray-paint works on the block. (Above, Elena Ratcheva of Lyon & Turnbull with one of the works.) Pest Control, a group set up this year to authenticate Banksy’s work, would not verify any of the street pieces because they were removed from their original settings. “Pest Control does not authenticate street pieces because Banksy prefers street work to remain in situ, and building owners tend to become irate when their doors go missing because of a stencil,” the group told BBC News. Ben Hanly, a contemporary art specialist at Lyon & Turnbull, said the works were genuine.”
From The Daily News: “A critically acclaimed play about gentrification in Williamsburg will soon be playing in – of all places – Williamsburg. Danny Hoch – actor, playwright, Williamsburg resident and founder of the Hip-Hop Theater Festival – is giving a free performance of his one-man show, “Taking Over,” in his own backyard – and at other spots around the city.
Hoch will give free performances in Queens and the Bronx, before the show’s Nov. 7 opening at the Public Theater in Manhattan.
“To have the show be successful in the Public Theater, I know I have to get the support of people in the boroughs first,” said Hoch, 37. “Tourists won’t be my bread and butter, but [it’s the] New Yorkers, who feel their stories are being told on stage.” [Read More]

Cost : $10
UPSTAIRS – Beats, rhymes, and life (sorry, Tip) are the main themes of this new popular night, which features two of the most beloved figures in the underground working today: DJ Rich Medina (Jump & Funk, APT) and Tribe Called Quest main man Q-Tip. This night has become one of Friday night’s do-not-miss destinations due to the fact that the music is hot (a mix of classic funk, hip-hop joints, and an eclectic mix of soul, afrobeat, and funky rock tracks), the crowd will dance all night, and Santos is bumping our insane soundsystem. Hosted by downtown It Girl Va$htie (1992 party), this party rocks!
