LA: SCORED Presents ‘A Trip Beyond the Moon’ – Dec 12


Man, the folks in LA really got it good with this series. Hopefully you caught the last one in August, because we’re totally jealous here in NYC.

Once again, Mark de Clive-Lowe, Miguel Atwood Ferguson, and Dexter Story have come together to present their most recent SCORED installment called A Trip Beyond the Moon.

On Monday December 12th, the three comrades will be paying tribute to the “cinematic genius” of Georges Méliès. Always thorough, the guys will be making sure to cover everywhere from his earliest pieces to more recent work driven by Méliès’ groundbreaking innovations in special effects.

Per usual, Mark, Miguel, and Dexter will be bringing the aural treats with VJ Synesthete on the visual mix. Stimulation for days.

Two unique sets will take place through the course of the night: one at 8PM and one at 9.30PM – all for one admission price!

Yael Naim – New Album + Live Shows in NY (5/9) and LA (5/16)

Thanks to the runaway success of her international hit “New Soul,” Yael Naim’s self-titled 2007 release propelled this French-Israeli singer-songwriter on a yearlong promotional trek around the globe. Naim’s stunning new album, She Was a Boy (which has already surpassed Gold status in France), collects 13 luminous folk-pop gems, each recorded at the singer’s apartment-turned-workshop. Upbeat tunes like “Come Home,” “Stupid Goal” and “Go to the River” will instantly appeal to fans of “New Soul,” though She Was a Boy presents a serious expansion of Naim’s sound as well.

Check out her upcoming appearances in NY and LA – She’ll be at Le Poisson Rouge on May 9 in NY, and she’ll be at Hotel Cafe on May 16th in LA.

Record Store Day – Tomorrow, 4/16

This is your final reminder: tomorrow is International Record Store Day. Fabricated to boost sales of independent record shops four years ago, this crate-digger’s holiday is becoming larger than life. There are so many exclusive Record Store Day releases that it’s hard to keep track – especially on vinyl, which is particularly sacred on Record Store Day. All that matters is that tomorrow, April 16th, you show your support at your local record store (Bring Money!) And gather ’round turntables and share stories, the way old people used to do.
