Belle and Sebastian Independence Day!
Has it really been a year since we stood in line all morning to see Stephen Malkmus and Yo La Tengo play Independence Day 2005? How time flies when you're borderline-alcoholic twenty-somethings living in the big city. This year, as I'm sure you all know, the almighty twee monsters Belle and Sebastian (one of our favorite bands OF ALL TIME) are playing the same Battery Park gig that Yo La killed last year. We're so excited we could positively cry all over our vintage Judy Blume paperbacks. Only one corporate smudge has come to tarnish this day of pop reverence: YOU HAVE TO GET YOUR TICKETS FOR THIS FREE EVENT AT A FUCKING STARBUCKS. W. T. F. What does overpriced caffeine beverages have to do with us getting our Glaswegian indie-pop fix? We'll tell you: NOTHING. AND BTW, WE ARE DEEPLY TROUBLED. DEEPLY.
Anyway, here's where you'll find us lining up:
From Noon until supplies last - Starbucks, Corner of Woolworth Building, 233, Broadway at Barclay Street.
From Noon until supplies last - Starbucks, Park Slope, 164 7th Avenue, Brooklyn.
From 5pm until supplies last - Starbucks at One Battery Park Plaza, near State Street and Pearl Street
From 5pm until supplies last - Starbucks at Astor Place, 13-25 Astor Place.
God. The things we do for B&S. See you all there!
