Hope Sandoval & The Warm Intentions

I went to see Hope Sandoval at the Music Hall of Williamsburg on Saturday. Photos were forbidden but Luz Gallardo has been taking some lovely shots of the tour.
10/10 The Music Hall Of Williamsburg - Williamsburg, NY Luz Gallardo
Brooklyn Vegan and the LA Weekly seem all annoyed that she didn't allow photos, obviously missing the point. She is what the experts call 'the real deal' shrouded in mystery, temperamental. The lighting was very dark and she faced away from the audience and covered her face with her hand while she sang. She came to Maya's Holiday Party a couple years ago but we were too shy to talk to her.

I dedicate this Mazzy Star video to Pavla, Nicole and Sunnie who each had no idea who I was talking about.
Last time I saw Hope Sandoval was at The Fillmore with Jesus and Mary Chain in, I think 1994

We hate it when our friends become successful (total j/k!)

Who says Indie Pop fans aren't babes? p.s. Shirley Braha started a Party A Day Blog, and our makeshift Pains afterparty at Daddy's even made the cut.

um, how cute are Peggy Wang East's ripped heart shape tights worn avec skort.

RIP: Mercedes Sosa

The year of death has hit close to home. La Negra, Mercedes Sosa dead at 74. Tears.
