Pink Floyd’s legendary guitarist, David Gilmour, is playing some shows at Radio City Music Hall (April 10) and Madison Square Garden (April 11, 12), but let’s face it, those accursed ticket scalpers have made your attendance about as likely as pigs on the wing. Who knows, maybe he’ll dedicate “Wish You Were Here” to all the fans who couldn’t afford to buy a ticket. But hey, who needs to watch Gilmour be ever so careful with that axe– his mind-bending music will be way more affordable at these upcoming trip-out sessions.

On the heels of his “crabby, epic love letter to NYC,” Louis CK went on The Howard Stern Show today to talk about everything from Bill Cosby and Brian Williams to his issues with “adorable” comics like Jimmy Fallon to why he quit Twitter. At some point, around the 11:30 mark of the recording above, Howard asked him about his early years in New York, and Louie confessed that the “only fantasy left” in his life is being one of those young, struggling comics whose jokes are all about life in Bushwick (which, yes, is the plot of While We’re Young). Later in the show, Howard told him it would be funny if he built a mansion in Bushwick and upped everyone’s rent (just what the neighborhood needs, right?). Here’s the transcript with the highlights in bold.
I first met Stefan Marolachakis in 2010 when he was tending bar at Heathers, just a few blocks away from his apartment overlooking Tompkins Square Park. He still lives there, but these days he’s writing for ESPN, Nylon, and The Fader, and drumming for Caveman, which just released its self-titled sophomore album via Fat Possum.
