It’s finally warm enough for me to wear this awesome leather jacket I got from Sammy Davis Vintage‘s showroom in Spanish Harlem a few months ago. I can’t find a specific example but this jacket reminds me of something Francoise Hardy (my fashion idol if I had to choose one) would wear.
So, don’t miss this event!

Did you or anyone you know ever have the book “Unknown Legends of Rock ‘n’ Roll“ by Richie Unterberger? The book catalogs and describes some of the most influential and original, often insane, musicians from the 1950′s – 1990′s who for one reason or another never attained mainstream success or fame, including Nick Drake (before that Volkwagon commercial came out!)
I bought the book in 2000 at Saint Mark’s Bookshop and so did a lot of my friends, mainly because it came with a kick-ass compilation CD of rare songs. I listened to it so much that when I accidentally stepped on it and broke it I bought a second copy of the book just to get a new CD.
So I was thrilled to find out that Anisette, the lead-singer of the Danish 60′s rock band The Savage Rose, whose song ‘A Girl I Knew’ is on the Unknown Legends compilation CD, will be performing this Friday at Joe’s Pub. As Unterberger notes in his introduction, The Savage Rose is one of the exceptions in the book, having achieved great commercial success in their homeland, Denmark, but are barely known in the United States.
I can also vouch for Anisette’s upcoming performance because last night I was lucky enough to see her sing one song as a special guest during her daughter Naja Rosa‘s set at Spike Hill in Williamsburg. Anisette went up on stage, barefoot like her daughter, dedicated the song to Malcolm X and went on to sing with such a captivating stage presence and strong voice that I felt privileged to experience every moment.
Last night at Spike Hill:
Reclaimed: Paintings From the Collection of Jacques Goudstikker at The Jewish Museum is partly an exhibition of Dutch, Northern Baroque, and Southern Renaissance paintings, and more interestingly, the story of a Dutch Jewish art collector and taste maker, the Nazi looting of his collection, and the eventual restitution, decades later, of part of the collection to his heirs.
Jacques Goudstikker’s grandfather had founded the Goudstikker gallery and his father was an art dealer as well. After studying in Amsterdam, Leiden and Utrecht, Jacques joined the family business at age 22. He brought immediate drastic change to the Goudstikker Gallery as well as the entire Dutch art market by Read more →

Help bring a green market to your neighborhood.
Green markets bring fresh, locally grown food directly from the farmers without middlemen.
Why Support Local Food?
1. Locally grown food tastes better and is better for you because they use less preservatives.
2. Local food preserves genetic diversity and is usually free of genetic modification.
3. Local food supports local farm families and preserves open space.
4. Less distance = Less Fossil Fuels = Less Dependence on Foreign Oil.
