Black— Bold, Beautiful & Badass

My Date with Danny Chavis

Meet Danny

 Location: The East Village.

Origin: Raleigh, N.C.

Occupation: Rock Star, Guitarist for Apollo Heights.

Hobbies: Women, Illustrating, and Writing about (and eating) Chicken.

How We Met:  Introduced at an art opening in the LES.

Fun Facts: Danny has an identical twin brother named Daniel and is fluent in Japanese.

The Date

Danny invited me to the opening of Black— Bold, Beautiful & Badass which featured four diverse Norwegian artists united through their shared preference for black. The reception was well received as the wine did flow. Danny and I showed off our knowledge of  Asian Art Art History and conversed with the artists, while attending each other’s empty glasses. Blessed with an eye for the exquisite and a natural gravitation to the vanguard, Danny makes the perfect date for an evening with the Arts.

The Dinner

After filling up on art and wine, it was time to head to the East Village for a bite. I suggested Natori, my favorite Japanese spot in the city and to my surprise not only does Danny share the same reverence for Natori as I, but is also good friends with the owner who gave us the VIP treatment (bonus points).  Danny ordered for us  in Japanese (bonus points) and we proceeded to bond over our love of the fried alligator, monkfish liver, and red snapper sashimi, which earned Danny mega “Food Compatibility” points. Although the dates are supposed to be dutch, Danny insisted on being a gentleman and picked up the bill. Who says Chivalry is dead?

The Conclusion

Pros: Is a Rock Star. Gets my Jokes. Eats Monkfish Liver. Is Brilliant.

Cons: Is a Rock Star. Obsessed with Chicken. Is a Smart Ass.

Our date was awe-inspiring  and I would absolutely do it again.

Next time, we’re headed straight for Japan!

Good night xx

You pushed my buttons but I called all the shots.

You snapped my photo but I bet you forgot.

Do you remember our moment? Can you recall what I wore?

If you ARE the photographer, you must be 100% sure.

I offered my camera and gave you a try.

And this is my self-portrait as seen through your eyes.

Just like Jesus Christ (and John Lennon) transcended to martyrdom through their conviction of love, Alexander Ebert descended the stage at the Music Hall of Williamsburg as an offering of unconditional love to eager fans and spectators. Better known as the front man for Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Alexander is the solo project of Ebert whose self-titled album was released on March 1, 2011. Although the album was written, recorded, and performed solely  by Ebert, an entourage of family, friends, musicians, and bohemians, including the infamous Jade Castrinos, accompanied him on stage for a modest tour that included only a handful of east coast dates.

Whether you believe Ebert to be a “Saint” or just a squalid hippie, one should not underestimate the power of Alexander as the album ventures through epic human experiences of love, loss, soaring highs and detrimental lows all in one sweeping, seamless motion. There are no prospective tour dates in sight so chances are if you missed it, you missed it.

However, there is good news for the fans in the audience who were requesting Edward Sharpe covers throughout Alexander’s set; Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros have announced a slew of tour dates that are accessible on their MySpace page.
