The Daily Shortlist April 9
No stranger to art, Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon has an exhibit up called “Come Across,” featuring abstract watercolors painted on translucent rice paper of audience members faces from the performers perspective. A sound piece by Thurston Moore is also featured. For macrobiotic food, Souen is where you can get plenty of soy, seitan, tofu, and even fish that is insanely healthy and beautifully prepared, not to mention inexpensive. Though Antarctica is freakin’ cold, the bar is not. In fact, the interior will make you feel warm inside as it’s 276 years old, and with an all-wood interior and brick wall, this establishment serves up cheap beer with no attitude. Not just one of NYC’s best music venues to see up and coming acts, it’s also a bar. You don’t have to pay an entrance fee to grab a pint and eavesdrop on featured acts playing in the next room.
