Vive la Franz!

Franz Ferdinand
Brooklyn Steel
April 16

Best band of the 21st century?  I say Franz Ferdinand are.  I keep forgetting this fact, and then every 2-3 years they come back into my life and BOOOM – I remember how thick I am, and how much they fucking rule!

Gone is guitarist Nick McCarthy, but besides his good kicks and looks, the Archdukes didn’t miss a beat on their latest franztastic album – Always Ascending – or supporting it live at Brooklyn Steel, a venue new to me, but one I’d be happy to return to.  The only tiny misstep is that they didn’t play my new album fav ‘Lois Lane‘, which was featured at the show the night before.  Can’t win them all, but Franz Ferdinand wins me each and every time!

Setlist – Always Ascending / The Dark of the Matinee / Do You Want To / Paper Cages / Glimpse of Love / Finally /
Michael / Lazy Boy / Stand on the Horizon / Walk Away / The Academy Award / Darts of Pleasure / Take Me Out / Ulysses

Encore – Feel the Love Go / The Fallen / Huck and Jim / This Fire

Stranger Danger Things

A Quiet Place
Shush, Money
Official Site | Trailers & Mo

PG-13 | 90 min

Imagine if Jim Halpert took over Schrute Farms, and instead of being so cocky and talky, he had to keep silent (CAUSE LIKE ALIEN BUG THINGS HATE NOISE AND WILL KILL THINGS THAT MAKE NOISE!), and be in a movie you’d expect M. Night Shyamalan to make – and that is what A Quiet Place is!!

Never did I expect a movie directed/co-written/starring John Krasinski to be THIS good.  His directorial debut left much to be desired.  Never saw his follow-up, cause I never thought much of his non-Jim talents.  BOY WAS I WRONG.  I’m sure you were/will be too! 

JIM!!!  FROM THE OFFICE!!!!  AND HIS REAL LIFE WIFE (Emily Blunt) PLAYS HIS WIFE!!  AND THEIR TWO KIDS (who aren’t their real kids) ARE INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!  OMG Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  AND THAT FARM!!!  

MAD BEETS CORN!!!
