I SAY: I should already be at Brooklyn Vegan's showcase as we speak (full disclosure: I write from BV as you may know) but I am poky and letting my phone recharge. See the Muslims if you can. And Friendly Fires. Actually, if you're a Brooklynite, today would be a great to to visit The Bell House. As for tonight, I'm going to check out how the new Dears lineup compares to the last one (who were so so good) and then probably head straight to Death by Audio. But the Pianos lineup is great too. So many choices. As for that NME showcase, leave after Little Boots because it's gonna get insanely packed for Passion Pit. And you don't want to see The Whip, believe me.
