For REAL hipsters only: has anyone ever said you have a huge personality, are obnoxious, a jerk, arrogant, over-the-top, unique, melodramatic, crazy or larger than life personality?
(If you are a real hipster but lack this larger-than-life personality, unfortunately this is not right for you)
OPEN CALL For Hipsters with personality types described above!

The Producers Club

Making it in America can indeed involve booze

No, it’s not that CBS dreck that has yet to do anything for Brooklynites besides give us fresh material to snark about. The HBO show How to Make it In America is celebrating its second season that starts on Oct. 2 by throwing a bunch of late-night open bars in Brooklyn and the Lower East Side because … HBO has crazy money? From all your Wire DVD purchases? It includes Thursday night  jams at Nitehawk Cinema from 10-11pm and Bembe form 12-1am. There are associated DJs, dancing, photo booths and more, and the free booze is Hendrick’s Gin and Hudson Whiskey, which ain’t bad at all. See the full list of open bars and details over at Free Dubya.

Confucius once said, “Play and be seen, listen and be blogged about.” Just kidding. Seriously, though, you’ve mastered your instrument, put together a band, landed a sweet pad in Brooklyn, hell, you might even be playing some shows… but how do you get people to know about all this? You’re going to need your band blogged about. Getting on popular listings websites is frustrating, dirty work that requires cunning, patience and grit. It’s not like the movies and it’s not about right place/right time: The record label talent scout/benefactor character will not be sitting in the back of the room at that open mic you worked so hard to prepare for. What does it take? We talked to a few music-world pros and got the inside scoop on getting your band out there. (more…)
