Tips for Today: Robert Anasi in NYC + Franz Ferdinand in L.A. + Caddywhompus in Chicago + John Maus in London

New York 

Screen shot 2012-08-13 at 11.20.05 AM.pngMetajournalist Robert Anasi knew Williamsburg before it was cool and rent was over $300. No, really. His fascinating memoir, The Last Bohemia, Scenes From the Life of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, chronicles the neighborhood's vastly different scene during the 90's. It reflects on the massive changes (for good and bad) that the area has gone through. Don't miss his reading tonight at Word. [NY Mag]

Any skateboarder knows that the art display on the bottom of your board deck is really a reflection of you. The co-founder and Senior Creative Director of the iconic skateboard company 5Boro, Mark Nardelli, will be discussing the world of skateboard art displays tonight at Design of the Times: Skateboard Graphics, at 3rd Ward.

This is the time for all you creative people to get noticed. Tonight at Freddy's, the monthly magazine, Having a Whiskey Coke With You, will be hosting an open mic in honor of finishing their first volume. Speak, sing or perform your way into the audience's hearts. [Brooklyn Based]

Head over to Sarca, because this week only, spring/summer womenswear, shoes and accessories are 40 percent off. [Time Out]


Screen shot 2012-08-13 at 12.49.00 PM.pngJohn Maus is quite the artist He is a keyboard player for Panda Bear and Ariel Pink, released a well-regarded and super catchy synth-pop album in 2011, We Must Become the Pitiless Censors of Ourselves, and is also working on his PhD. He also looks like an '80 preppy but most of his frenzied performances involve him standing on stage with a microphone, screaming and hitting himself. Check him out tonight at Scala with The Pheromoans and Trash Kit. [Time Out]

Funthyme and All Ears have a barbeque and tales planned for tonight with their story series, Storythyme. Lounge out on your blanket at Daltson Roof Gardens, as you munch on Spatchcock poussin and listen to entertaining, true tales from various talented folks. [Flavorpill]
