The Palms Just Got A Little Less Sweaty Lost A Customer

By Gerard on Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

(images culled from our close friends at Blabbermouth.net)

Spring breakers (?) and casino resort patrons alike are no doubt saddened by the recent falling out between Vince Neil and The Palms.  As some of you may know, Matador has conducted business with the latter on one notable occasion, and we can vouch for the establishment’s very high standards (the sole exception being an unfortunate Vince Neil sighting by the pool).

All of that said, it would be a very sad day for Las Vegas if colorful characters like Vince Neil found themselves ostracized, simply because they occasionally throw a shit-fit in public (and proceed to tweet about it leaving out all of the relevant details).

High-quality video of Glasser performing last Saturday night at Fader Fort

By Patrick on Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

Unbelievably high quality footage of Glasser’s set at the Fader Fort during CMJ last Saturday night. Even more amazing is when the power cut out and she finishes off “Tremel” acapella, totally unfazed (not unphased as some might have it).

Matador At CMJ 2008

By Robby on Monday, October 20th, 2008

2008′s CMJ Music Marathon in New York City begins tomorrow (10/21), but for us, the festivities start tonight with Shearwater’s performance at Le Poisson Rouge (LPR).

Find below, your guide to the official and unofficial CMJ Marathon showcases featuring a trio of Matador acts: Shearwater, Jay Reatard and Mission of Burma.

With quite the live-act triumvirate and manning of the 1′s and 2′s by Billy Hayes and Times New Viking at the Beggars/Matador After Party, this’ll be a week to remember.

We’ll see you out!

Tonight : Dave Martin Inflicts His Personal Aesthetic On The Lucky Public

By Gerard on Tuesday, March 18th, 2008

Who amongst us hasn’t read the listening piles of Matador Direct’s Dave Martin (above, right) and thought, “I wish there was an Other Music party he was dj’ing?”

Well, your dreams and mine have come true. Dave will be spinning tonight from 9-10pm at Union Pool ( 484 Union Ave, Williamsburg, 11211) at an event that will also feature the dj skills of Excepter’s Dan Houghland and a live performance from El Guincho.

There’s no word on a dress code, but as always, I think you can presume that Union Pool adhere to a “no shirt, no shoes, no problem” policy.
