The Daily Shortlist October 2
This being the first of a three night stand, Stereolab, who love the electronic blips and bleeps as much as they love pop and combine them brilliantly, play the Fillmore along with songs from their new album Chemical Chords. Joining them are Van Allen Belt and the fabulous Atlas Sound. One of the best Japanese restaurants in the city, Yama, serves up some of the hugest and freshest portions of sushi, while not being as expensive as you think. Close to Irving Plaza, 119 Bar is one dive where you can get cheap drinks, play pool, and hang with friends while not standing out or being bothered when you’re a sweaty mess from dancing after seeing Shadow and Chemist perform, and I mean that in a good way! If you’re bored and early for the show, head over to the four floor Barnes & Noble nearby to look through magazines and get a cup of coffee.
