Pop Goes The World at Pavel Zoubok Gallery in New York. Now through August 13, 2010

A change is gonna come – whether we like it or not.  Since we all know that life imitates art, big change is just around the corner.  The “Pop Goes the World” exhibit at Pavel Zoubok Gallery in New York is inspiring as it sobering as it shows how the world has really transformed from a planet of brotherly love to a place of commercialism and greed.  The exhibit features 21 artists whose works reveal a darker side of the world, but in a playful way.  I enjoyed this exhibit a lot and I think you will too.  The Pavel Zoubok Gallery is located at 533 West 23rd Street (between 10th and 11th Avenue) in New York.  “Pop Goes the World” runs until August 13, 2010.  Don’t miss it!

Quinn Walker of Suckers

Brooklyn based band (say that 3 times fast) Suckers opened for the National at New York’s Terminal 5 on July 29, 2010.  This was my first exposure to their music, but I’ve been reading about them in the blogosphere for quite a while.  The indie rock quartet got the crowd ready to rock.  Lead singer Quinn Walker hit some high notes that would make Janis Joplin proud and one song featured whistling that Peter Bjorn and John would be in awe of.  Hear them for yourself by downloading a free mp3 of Suckers’ “Easy Chairs” while supplies last.

Kurt Vile

I’ve been reading about Kurt Vile in the blogosphere for a long time and I knew at some point I’d see him live, so like I tend to do, I was waiting for him to walk out on a stage in front of my eyes to hear his music for the first time.  That moment happened on July 29, 2010 when Kurt Vile opened for The National at New York’s Terminal 5 and I loved what I heard.  Based on his name, I thought his music would be crude, but it was actually rock with a little bit of psychedelic folk mixed in.  I definitely heard some Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan moments and according2g, that’s a good thing!  Vile’s backing band is called the Violators and I think that makes him even more awesome!  You can download a free mp3 to “Invisible: Nonexistent” by clicking here while supplies last.
