lots of exciting stuff going on this week. on sunday i went to the scissor sisters show at the bowery - what a scene. not only were liz and i standing next to anderson cooper, but in the balcony were: kylie minogue, karl lagerfeld (!), stephen gan, and ingrid sischy. and on the way downstairs to the bathroom i bumped into todd solondz and he gave me the crook eye. show was great, lots and lots of energy as per usual. the last time i saw the sisters was back in 2004 (?) at hammerstein, great to see them in a smaller venue than that. pretty standard setlist, all of the hits, plus a whole bunch of new material. highlight of the night for me was "filthy gorgeous" and a rollicking version of "music is the victim". only downside was that tiga was strictly on dj duty, no live material from sexor...let's just hope for a proper tour soon.

spank rock - sweet talk
spank rock - coke and wet
anyone headed to the a-trak/glc/the rub show at knitting factory on friday? i'm considering checking it out, but am worried i might have to work late...if you haven't already picked up a copy of the drive slow mixtape, don't sleep on it
