Not to sound like the narrator on a commercial for some kind of cheesy, third-rate family amusement park (the kind who can’t even afford licensing for real cartoon characters), but there really is something for everyone at Glasslands Gallery. It’s the kind of place where you an meet dudes’ in women’s underwear, professional wrestlers, and rage it on the dance floor until 5am. If for some reason you get bored of the DJs or bands, the walls are always covered in artfully placed oven mitts or fake trees. But they usually book great DJs and bands, so there’s no need to stare in boredom. For example, they’ve got awesome bands booked for the next two nights. Tonight is Santino Santino with members of Ratatat, Himalaya, The Shining Twins and Baby Fangs with members of the Willowz with free beer and a dance party afterward. Tomorrow night for $8, you can see ArpLine, Letting Up Despite Great Faults, Home Video, Million Young, Love Like Deloreans and Mystery Roar. And as a bonus, go to ArpLine’s website and download their new album for FREE.

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
