After a friend and I got bounced from Westlight thanks to a Master of None shoot, we thought, fine, we’ll just find another Williamsburg rooftop bar. We ended up at ESH, Ilan Hall’s spot atop the Urban Outfitters. Turns out we were probably the very last people to eat there, because the Israeli barbecue spot quietly ended dinner service last night. The dining room is now closed and the rooftop bar will remain open for just a little while longer, according to a bartender.

Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum, who will be giving their third-ever live show next Tuesday at Trans-Pecos, has such little online presence, it almost feels like they’re trying to keep their existence a secret. But for a pretty new band you’ve probably never heard of, their members might surprise you: they’re Matt Katz-Bohen, who since 2008 has toured with Blondie; Peter Yanowitz, of The Wallflowers and Morningwood; and Michael C. Hall, who you might remember from your nightmares, in the years Dexter was on.

A Visit to DeKalb Market Hall, the Heathen Food Orgy and New Home of Katz’s

I like food; I dislike crowds. So it was with mixed feelings that I descended the escalator into DeKalb Market Hall, the Albee Square food-court-on-steroids that opened today in downtown Brooklyn.

I arrived on the earlier side of the lunch rush – actually right at the stroke of noon, when civilized people like myself take luncheon – but the market was already bustling with people eager to sample from some of the 40-odd food vendors.

If “Brooklyn Girls” wasn’t the song of the summer, what will be? Allow us to debut, for your consideration, “Summer Pop Song” by Star Ballads. True to its name, the band is made up of some fixtures of the Brooklyn rock firmament: namely Yeah Yeah Yeahs drummer Brian Chase, Oakley Hall’s Rachel Cox on vocals, and Bernard Gann of Brooklyn black metal band Liturgy on bass.

Could Downtown Brooklyn be the new destination for catching live music? And not just at Barclays? Hot on the heels of the reincarnated Hank’s Saloon bringing foot-stomping jams to the space above Hill Country Food Park, the nearby DeKalb Market Hall is also adding live music to its numerous food options, by opening up a performance venue with a cocktail bar attached. DeKalb Stage opens this weekend.

How many times have you had to warn your visiting friends to stay far, far away from Radegast Hall & Biergarten lest they get blasted with barf by some weekend warrior who doesn’t understand boots are made to be shared, not enema’d? Well, as of 6 p.m. tonight, you can simply dismiss Radegast as the naughty, trashy cousin of Witlof and point your pals in the direction of this new, sophisticated “Flemish brasserie.”
