This is everything we ever wanted.
Anne Shirley would NEVER make that face or have fake freckles. Anne Shirley had DIGNITY!! This person thinks she’s doing ANNIE, not Anne Shirley, and Annie SUCKS. I hate this.
Creating New Things
‘Cause, yeah, we know, it’s much easier to just mash-up existing stuff and hate on whatever anyone else is trying to do.
So, for those who weren’t totally clear the first time: BK bands, we want you to win 10 hours of studio time, and you don’t need to reinvent the wheel to make it happen.
If you’re an unsigned band with at least one (1) member living in Brooklyn, submit an original song—new or already released—reflective of your borough or hood. The deadline’s Friday, May 13, and submission details (it’s easy, ya just send us the damn thing) are available here.
On Sunday, June 5, the finalists will perform at Glasslands Gallery in Williamsburg for our super bad-ass panel of judges, which currently includes:
Nicky Digital, uh, Nicky Digital
Jason Diamond, Vol. 1 Brooklyn/Jewcy.com
Charlie Todd, Improv Everywhere
Dan Zaccagnino, Indaba Music

Jaws was released 36 years ago today and I still won’t get back in the water.
