[caps]O[/caps]ur favorite Monte Carlo recluse/bachelor John Sharnhorst has gone and made himself a music video in response to a question he received from a band called the Terrordactyls. Does this mean everyone who writes him a letter gets their own music video? Watch out Kanye, Sharnhorst has some Dark Twisted Fantasies of his own…
[caps]T[/caps]oday we’ve got a new video from Brooklyn’s Bermuda Triangle in honor of their upcoming show at Cake Shop on Thursday 11/18. This addictively sad song is off their debut LP One Year in How Many and features the musician BC Smith framed against flickering images of two of the most poignant amateur dancers to ever hit 1980’s VHS. Directed by TTH editor Alex Reeves.
[caps]T[\caps]TH Contributor and good pal Dan Fetherston and his band Mcdonalds are throwing a major rager and rock show at the best bar in Greenpoint, the Capri Social Club on Saturday. A lot of TTH memories from this place: It was the site of our Mysteries Issue party, location for Rampant Sipping #6 “Love Potions of the Fickle”, birth of the The Cashew God Trilogy, not to mention the location for the dry humping scene in the Wackness.
[caps]M[/caps]ankind’s search for the best band name has finally come to a rigid halt. A hard rock cover band from Burlington Vermont has claimed the title of “Best Band Name” with the name “PLEASUREDOME” inspired by another great historic rocker, Mr. Van Halen himself. “I’ve been sitting on this name for about ten years…and I’m very excited about it,” said Pleasuredome drummer Joe Villemaire.
[caps]A[/caps] few brave TTH correspondents attended the “secret” 2am Black Lips show at the Shank in Williamsburg on Saturday night and let’s just say we’re not eager to be returning to that venue anytime soon. The entire experience was defined by a dangerous lack of bathrooms: four or five hundred attendees were limited to two port-a-pottys next to the bar. The line stretched around the entire venue with people waiting over 90 minutes to use the toilet.
[caps]T[/caps]his is the sort of event that sold out before I was even born- but I would have given my third testicle for tickets to Wednesday night’s screening of Cave of Forgotten Dreams, Herzog’s 3D Documentary of the Chauvet caves of southern France. The film screened as a part of the DOC NYC Festival and Herzog was on hand to introduce it.
[caps]T[/caps]hanks to everyone who came out to the Rebuilding Hope Fundraiser Screening co-hosted by Take the Handle last night. The screening was well attended and the Q & A with Abraham Awolich was pretty lively .Thanks to PS122 for the space and SUDEF for the fine wine and cheese spread. (more…)
