These Days: Wednesday, August 5th, 2015


Live: My good friend (and once upon a time rock nyc scribe) Marie Lynn regarding me going to see the boy band at Metlife in a couple of hours: “Somewhere in New York City, a little girl is crying her heart out because you took her ticket to One Direction”

Recorded: Yes, of course I’m listening to 1D to get in fighting trim, also? the new Danny Brown and the new Iris Dement in heavy rotation round our way.Kinda stopped listening to Friday’s new releases by now. Disappointing right?

Sports: With the Mets, it is always scary to get your hopes up too high, but this could be a big year for them. They made some nice moves and added four pieces. And they are still in first place. As are the Yanks, of course.

News: There doesn’t appear to be any, since you asked.

Comedians Getting Serious: Amy with cousin Chuck Schumer discussing weapons and control and ballingher eyes out (after a shooting spree at a screening of “Trainwreck”) and Louis CK shadowing Mayor Bill for an upcoming project. Wonderful, I saw.

Nassau Coliseum Closing Till 2017: Billy Joel performed an action packed 32 song set including “Homeward Bound” “Me And Julio Down By The Schoolyard” and “Late In The Evening” with, well just guess. Andrew Cuomo introduced Billy and, what the hell, here is the setlist:
