Attended the Animal Collective and Danny Perez music event at The Guggenheim last night… I love how this museum opens its doors for such amazing evenings of people, music and booze. No art on the walls, just amazing shadows from the light show and incredible ambiance from the music. A great night at a great venue.
Took a bunch of photos of the space, check the out on my flickr.
Unbeknown to many, the tragically brilliant American artist, Jean-Michel Basquiat, who set the art world alight with his neo-expressionist work before dying of an overdose in 1988, also produced a hip hop track of some note, collaborating with fellow graffiti artist Rammellzee under the mindful direction of the legendary Fab 5 Freddy. The resulting track, Beat Bop, is a spicy window into New York in the early 1980s.
Juliette and her new solo album “Queens Die Proudly” are incredible. Previously part of one of my favorite bands, Hello Stranger, she has taken her own path. She has written some great lyrics and has created some unique sounds. I had a chance to see her at Fontanas in NYC last month, the band consisted of 3 horns, 3 strings, guitar, bass, drums, Keyboards and Vocals. Big sound for such a small stage, rockin’ and quaint. If you have a chance, click here and check out her music.
