  • REVIEW: 1ST URBAN ARTS MRKT

    By Reed Vreel and Brooklyn Daily Eagle

    “CLINTON HILL— On Sunday, the first of five Urban Arts Markets was held on Myrtle Avenue in Clinton Hill. The day-long event was harried by intermittent rainstorms, the first of which struck before the market began at noon. The second storm broke around 3 p.m., forcing the market and all of its vendors to close shop just as the event had begun to attract more pedestrian traffic.

    But during a three-hour window of sunshine on Sunday, the market (situated right by Pratt University) flourished and offered a preview of what organizers expect during the next four events. The vendors and perusing shoppers displayed a carefree, summer spirit that seemed irrepressible. Music flowed from the stage, and small local businesses filled the tents with a tantalizing and colorful variety of handcrafts, accessories and art.” [Read More]

  • NEWS: NYC DJ’S

    Bruce Tantum of TIme Out New York’s ‘club’ section breaks down a few DJ categories that exist here in NY and talks to some key players from each grouping. Here’s the intro:

    “Much has been made of the perceived demise of the superstar spinner, the kind who shows up at a shiny superclub, doles out the same insipid set of superficial music that he’s played for the past year and a half, collects his five-figure fee and heads for the nearest Learjet. We’d say good riddance—except that so many of those guys are still around. Thankfully, there are plenty of other ways to measure success other than monetarily, and TONY caught up with a few key members from the city’s clubland community to discover more about how they view their nocturnal accomplishments.” [Read More]
