Brooklyn-based artist and poet Juliana Huxtable was all over Miami Art Week this past week, DJing at a Narcissister performance on Thursday and a NADA after-party on Friday. And then, on Saturday, there was a panel discussion at Art Basel proper. The talk was supposed to be about “Transgender in the Mainstream,” but that title was scratched out in a photo that Huxtable posted to Instagram. Scrawled above it: “The Panel That Shall Not Be Named.”

There are more signs of life at the onetime home of Don Hill’s. No, it isn’t being zombified CBGBs-style. Rather, the club’s soon-to-open replacement, The Hills, will host a tribute to Don himself, featuring Michael C. Hall and other cast members of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, which got its start at the rowdy rock-and-rave dive of yore.

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.

Bask in This ‘Summer Pop Song’ From Members of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Liturgy, Oakley Hall

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.
