Here’s a short video of the new show Banksy has on in NYC called Village Pet Store And Charcoal Grill. Its located at 89 7th Avenue between West 4th and Bleeker Street in the West Village of New York City and is open as of NOW to October 31st (Halloween), Banksy’s pet store is officially open each and every daily from 10am until midnight. The space literally looks like a pet show which can be viewed through the front windows at any point of the day of night. The space is 300 square feet and can’t hold more than 20 people at any one time.
This is the first time that Banksy has used animatronics and a show with absolutely no graff. or street art techniques.
Matt and Kim are an infused indie pop duo from Brooklyn with raw and catchy tunes. Their track Yea Yeah which really allowed them to take off came out over a year ago and they have done it again with the newly released Daylight single [video above]. I first say Matt and Kim in Toronto last summer when they played at Mod Club and quickly realized that they are probably the happiest people I have ever seen. Their whole set both of them had a huge smile across their faces and were authentically loving life being super fun and just playing their music. If you want proof if this claim just watch their new video for Daylight or their Yea Yeah video, happiest people ever!
Matt and Kim have an upcoming tour and perfectly enough they are coming to Ottawa again playing at Mavericks. I am there and so should you! If your hitting it let me know! Pick up your tickets at EndHits YE!

I’ve recently been loving the publication/blog Refinery 29. They are out of NYC and cater to Fashion, Travel, Music, Deisgn oriented people. They have a LA edition as well. The site has everything from Shop directories per city as well as online video content. They are “devoted to seeking out the people, products, and ideas that set the bar for originality and exceptionally, season after season.” Which is great!! Since I first came across Refinery 29 i have notices significant content updates and site improvements which really emphasizes their whole “forward thinking” ideals.
I would defiantly mark Refinery 29 as a bi-weekly stop on your online browsing.
The Virgins, a band that sounds very UK…ish? I think so but their from NYC and started back in 2005. In my opinion just ahead of the whole scene in America. There good, easy indie rockish new wave (if that genre still exists) soul. Non the less it’s great music that will last. Really, just listen to The Virgins and enjoy the sounds. They remind me slightly of the UK band Mystery Jets… does anyone else think so?
I was first introduced to Richard Prince when I was in New York and he had an exhibit at the Guggenheim. I was drawn to the large scale joke painting which were witty and in some people could find them to be inappropriate. I just found them hilarious and made me want to tell them to people as jokes myself. I also really enjoyed Prince’s his Nurse series. I know some people do not like this series because of the unknown, a little morbid and slightly erotic undertones. I found it there meaning, thought provoking, and the expression by Prince were very in your face.
