Please join us for the 1st Annual Bartenders Ball this Monday, November 26th. All proceeds to benefit those affected by Hurricane Sandy.
Mere hours after unveiling tunes off their just-released fifth album, Synthetica, for a horde of adoring fans inside the cozy Music Hall of Williamsburg, Emily Haines and Jimmy Shaw of Metric invited us into a posh suite at NYC’s Bowery Hotel to tape a performance for The Bowery Presents Live channel on YouTube, which posts awesome sessions like this one every week (see them all here).
At the hotel, the duo stripped away the electric throb of their new single, “Youth Without Youth,” down to two-part harmonies, acoustic guitar and harmonica (!). All that remained from the original was a spare, digital beat, saddled up through Shaw’s iPhone.

Summer wedding season is upon us, which means flights to book, registries to empty and pretty cocktail dresses to purchase and wear. Whether you’re going Oceanside in Nantucket Harbour, yachting off of Key West, witnessing vows in a botanical garden or ballroom dancing in NYC, we have an ensemble worthy of the best-dressed guest nod — just try not to show up the bride.
Check out Empellón Taqueria‘s East-Side sister, Empellón Cocina, which recently opened on First Avenue. Chef Alex Stupak has created an exciting menu (minus tacos) which features delicious small and shared plates. Their guacamole is off the charts and was recently listed in New York Magazine’s Best Of New York! You can book a table or walk in and take a seat at the bar – their Tequila and Mezcal cocktails are sublime. Well worth exploring and just a stone’s throw away from the Hotel.
