Eats, Beats, and Treats: Starlight Girls
Hello all! In the spirit of New Years Eve, we got to talking with Starlight Girls about what they have in store for bringing in 2014 (Times Square may or may not be involved). We love their creativity and are stoked to see them at Mercury Lounge with Black Taxi and Grandchildren. Check it out!
"Let’s kick off the awesomeness with a trip to the beach! via THE RED LOBSTER in Times Square. This is one of the best joints in NY, you really get immersed in NYC culture. You’re gonna LOVE the free biscuits, they’re especially great for a hangry lil guitar player that doesn’t have any money.” For those of you not brave enough to enter into the Times Square vicinity we’d also recommend you stop by Katz Delicatessen on the Lower East Side for a classic pastrami sandwich or a hot dog. They’ve been around since 1888 so you’re guaranteed a delicious meal.
"While you’re in Times Square you may notice on the JUMBO-SCREEN that Starlight Girls are playing at Mercury Lounge. It’d be fitting to take a black taxi down there because that is who else is playing, Black Taxi!" You can even go for FREE by clicking here

"Now time for a treat! After the show get over to Sals in Little Italy and grab a small cannoli. Next, run around the corner on Grand Street to Onieal’s for a Guinness. Once you have both of those ready, take your lil cannoli and drop it into your half a pint of Guinness and chug it. This is what we call the Conannoli O’Brien!”
We’d love to thank Starlight Girls for their awesome NYE recommendations and we also suggest you check out their new song on noisey
for a preview of the stellar performance.

SONG OF THE DAY: Factory Floor “Fall Back”
Plenty of songs have hooks, but that’s not the only way to burn a tune into someone’s head. Hypnotic repetition works too: it’s kind of the essence of dance music, after all. London’s Factory Floor know this well, and they’ve got quite the keeper in “Fall Back”, a laser-focused composition that sounds like some warehouse anthem with a nervous tic and a tendency to hallucinate. No drugs necessary to trip on this one. Just crank it up.
Then catch Factory Floor’s two-night stand at 285 Kent this Thursday and Friday.
