Brooklyn trio Moon Hooch have been playing together in the New York subway since the summer of 2010. Since being banned from the Bedford L stop for causing “too many dance parties,” the band now calls the Union Square L stop home. Nachos NY will be giving away a pair of tickets to this Friday’s show.
Guac Rock is only a week away! Tickets are still available for this epic event. Imagine. 3 hours on a boat, unlimited guacamole, an hour of free tequila and three awesome bands. One of those bands, American Darlings were kind enough to answer a few nacho goodness questions.
When we’re not reviewing nachos all over the place or throwing events that garner URDB records, we like to talk to bands. We’ve been tweeting with Shark? for sometime and had questions to ask them.
Did you forget? Monday is the day of all days: the Guac Rock Boat Cruise! While you’ll be scarfing down guacamole, North Highlands will be entertaining the masses. One of L Magazine’s 8 NYC Bands to Hear in 2010, North Highlands were eager answer a few questions and share their excitement to be part of this epic event.
Unless you have been living under a rock for the past month then you would know that the Guactacular is around the corner. This year, while you wet you whistle with Dos Equis and feast on 20 guacs, Alex Meixner and his band will be putting on a crazy-ass show. Mariachi polka music will be heard at the Bell House. For a little insight into what we will hear, I asked the man himself.
Charlotte Gainsbourg’s new album, IRM, drops today, but this duet with Beck, “Heaven Can Wait”, has been around for about two months. Video embedded. Head to about 00:36 to see the scene featuring two buddies holding a nacho bomb.
Howdy, folks. Nacho Radio is returning from a brief hiatus so prepare yourselves. Many of you may be pumping yourselves up for the usual Friday night shenanigans like cribbage and canasta. Me, I need something to get the ol’ juices flowing as I watch my World Champion New York Yankees mosey up Broadway. Now if I get arrested (FYI I get REALLY angry when parades don’t include candy) this may be my anthem for freedom! Or just Yankees victory.
Rainy, cold-for-October Saturday afternoons don’t usually scream “margarita,” (they usually call for a favorite of Rachel’s, a Hot Toddy) but as I sat down at Lime Jungle I oddly wanted nothing more than a frozen tequila delight.
Just before their state-crossing tour, we got a chance to sit down with Brooklyn-based band, Afuche. With their show taking place at Public Assembly and us rarely excited to trek to Williamsburg, we decided on Yola’s Cafe, which I’d heard good things about.
Holy Ghost Tent Revival were back in town this past week. Before a show at the Living Room, we got together for some happy hour nacho action at Piano’s. Before 7, the Grand Piano Nachos are only $5. We got 6 plates.
Please, join the Nacho King of New York, Mr. Lee Frank and myself at the Mercury Lounge tonight. This will be the first of two trips to the Lower East Side this week. Lee and I will be attending The Morning After Girls concert tonight. Tomorrow the self-declared official band of all things ‘cho And the Moneynotes will be back on stage in the city.
