On April 17, 2014, New York experienced “Croll-chella” as Britain’s Dan Croll performed a sold out show at Bowery Ballroom.  I’m really into his debut album “Sweet Disarray,” which fuses folk and electronic music with rock accents (think Two Door Cinema Club meets Paul Simon).  Dan thanked the audience several times for purchasing his album instead of downloading it illegally, and he rewarded his fans by hanging out at the merch table after the show was over.  Very classy!  I’m looking forward to hearing more great things from Dan and you will be too after you press play on the below video for “In/Out” which will undoubtedly be stuck in your head for the rest of the day because it’s ridiculously catchy.  I’m glad to provide that service for you!  Great seeing you again Dan!  Support Dan Croll’s music by visiting his official website.

"If You're Reading This, There's Still Time." by Morley.  Out NOW!

“If You’re Reading This, There’s Still Time.” by Morley. Out NOW!

Artist Morley has not only made the leap from the streets to galleries, but he can also add ‘Author’ to his list of career highlights.  His first book “If You’re Reading This, There’s Still Time.” is out now!  If you are unfamiliar with Morley’s work, you can remedy that by reading a Q&A Morley and I did in 2011 (wow, where does the time go?!) and you will instantly fall in love with his wit (and as a bonus, he sent us a photo of his cat Nelson wearing a sweater!).   Morley’s art has been seen all over the world and he is equal parts Banksy and Steven Wright.  Needless to say, I’ve loved his work for years and I am ecstatic about this book!  Congratulations Morley!!!

An Encounter with FKA Twigs (Tahliah Barnett)

FKA Twigs (Tahliah Barnett) and Geoffrey Dicker

Hot new artist alert!  Tahliah Barnett, better known as FKA Twigs is a trip hop/R&B/pop singer from Britain and in addition to her gorgeous look, her music is infectious.  She performed a show at Glasslands in Brooklyn the other night and whilst she kept the mood going by virtually performing in the dark, that makes for horrible photos.  So in lieu of those, I will tell you that FKA stands for “formerly known as” since another artist named Twigs was upset that she took on the name Twigs, which refers to the sound her joints make when they crack.  Learn more about FKA Twigs on her website.  Best of luck to you Tahliah and I look forward to seeing you again!

New York!  Head over to Freight +Volume to check out a cool exhibit from the Russian-German artist couple Nina Römer and Torsten Römer.  From far away, their works look like they are in 3-D and as you get closer, they look pixelated.

I would love to tell you all about how this photo came about, how much I love Chuck Palahniuk and how cool he was to take a photo with me, but the first rule of Fight Club is….

Thanks Chuck!
