If you are in the giving spirit this holiday season, indie musician Dev Hynes (who records as Test Icicles, Lightspeed Champion and Blood Orange) could sure use your help.  He lost everything in an apartment fire, including old hard drives, tons of music he’s written and recorded and even his poor dog perished in the fire.  So tragic and sad.  I’ve lived through an apartment fire (luckily my ‘stuff’ was ok, though the same cannot be said about the building I’d lived in) and I can truly say it was one of the worst days of my life.  Massive hugs for a speedy recovery to Dev Hynes on this horrible tragedy that he’s going through.

So here’s where you can help – they’ve set up a GoFundYourself account to help Dev Hynes pick up the pieces.  The link is here, and awesomely, they’ve raised over $15,000 US within the first 24 hours.  Obviously rebuilding your life from scratch is quite expensive, so please give a thought to Dev this season and give what you can, no matter how small.

Morrissey

Morrissey

New York!  Get ready for a winter time clusterfuck!   The reclusive and almost always disapproving Morrissey will be signing his autobiography entitled “Autobiography” at Barnes and Noble in Union Square on December 12, 2013 at 7 pm.  No performance, no reading, just a ‘straight’ signing.  Your receipt for book purchase is your ticket (per their tweet) My suggestion is that you get there early and don’t be disappointed if Moz signs a few and peaces out.  Good luck!

Update:  A day after getting everyone’s panties in a bunch about this event, Barnes and Noble (via Gothamist) have backtracked and said the event is not happening.  I wonder if it’s because Morrissey disapproved of the venue.   Or maybe he is still blaming former Smiths manager for sabotaging this effort?

Thank You X - We Want More

Thank You X – We Want More

One of our favorite street artists, ThankYouX has already made the transition from the streets to galleries.  He’s made another leap and this time, it’s into the music world!  Already a quite successful DJ (under the moniker Hi Deaf), he’s getting ready to release his debut single with LA Riots titled “Rewind” coming out next month on Dim Mak Records.  Prior to the release of “Rewind,” ThankYouX and Jam3s K3nn3dy have teamed up with Jurassic 5’s Chali2na and you can download their track “Gonna Lose My Mind” on ThankYouX’ official Soundcloud page (along with several other mixes… all for a limited time!)  ThankYou for the free downloads ThankYouX!

P.S.  ThankYouX has not retired from art and in fact, the above mural you see was painted live at a recent event in New York celebrating the new MotoX phone.  X Marks the spot!
