GIRLS VS. BOYS: BATTLE OF THE INDIE POP BANDS
I'm back to host the 2nd Girls v. Boys musical cage match. Love it because I get to hear music, sweet music. Also, the bartender at Sin-e was awesome to me. Maybe a little too awesome... but still, come on down if you want to rock out with your thingy out. I said thingy. I'm x-treme like that.
150 Attorney St. b/w Houston & Stanton
New York, NY
Girls vs. Boys is a battle of the sexes via indie punk-pop-rock music. Two female-fronted bands vs. two male-fronted bands. The battle is judged American Idol-style by local celebrity judges.
The Girls Team -- THE MARIANNE PILLSBURYS & THE DOMESTICS -- won the very first battle on June 15th and will return for the re-match against a new Boys Team -- THE OGGS & THE DOPES!
Who will be victorious this time? Come find out on August 17th @Sin-e!

Now, as an extra special bonus, right here I was going to give you a recent picture of my friend Josh holding the Aflac duck, but the image was too large. Probably for the best. I did not get his permission and as far as I know the duck never signed a release.
