NYC music scenesters often get a bad rap for being apathetic naysayers, but Thee Oh Sees proved this wrong at Santos Party House. Vigorous, sweaty and jam-packed, fans went berserk for the San Francisco based psychedelic rockers and gave back 100% to front man Johnny Dywer.  Perhaps local music enthusiasts are under stimulated, armed with high expectations, and faced with so many promising “It” bands that often deliver lackluster performances. Who can get excited about that?  Johnny Dywer knows how to rev-up the crowd and put on a show with out jeopardizing the integrity of the music. He bites, kicks, spits and plays guitar with his teeth and it all sounds good. It’s a fine line between acting and showmanship and the only thing worse than apathy is a painful performance from an overzealous thespian with all the right moves. Thee Oh Sees on the other hand, walk that line effortlessly and always give their audience something to freak out about!

Williamsburg Fashion Weekend, presented by Glasslands Gallery,  is where art meets fashion…and music. Founder and curator Arthur Arbit created WFW as a platform for emerging designers who create hand made, one-of –a-kind garments (or small collections) that emphasize fair-trade and eco-friendliness. The uniqueness of WFW goes beyond the exploration of designers who address social and environmental issues: what’s most compelling  is its presentation and delivery; these high-art threads are accompanied on stage with live music sets, spoken-word, and performance art. The models  are not hangers but instead radiate personality and a rocker attitude. There’s no catwalk, BMW sponsorships, or flimsy girls. It’s a circus with art, music and fashion and at Williamsburg Fashion Weekend one cannot be differentiated from another.

The Talent:

Marcus Hicks’s SDN is a grunge/glam, 1920s hipster inspired line that uses upcycled clothes and vintage fabrics. SDN was joined by a live performance with Brooklyn based Bad Credit No Credit, an Avant-Garde Jazz band. VON exploded on stage with fantastic colors and feathery embellishments. By far the most imaginative, VON models appeared as fanciful birds from a surrealist story tale. Other designers from Friday’s show included Noname Collective, Saddle Tramps Collection and King Gurvy who utilizes recycled artwork to create his spring 2011 line.
