Here’s a contest for you…

Local “antifolk” hero Jeffrey Lewis, an East Village native and frequent Sidewalk Cafe performer, has another record coming out at the end of the month. Dubbed Manhattan, the long-player has some pretty cool cover art (designed by Lewis) that resembles a comic strip. The illustration includes depictions of 27 no-longer-existing Manhattan businesses and other landmarks.

We’ve teamed up with Rough Trade Records to offer a contest for Boogie readers. It’s simple; be the first person to correctly identify all 27 vanished institutions by following this link. Then scroll to the bottom of the page for the contest artwork panels (the subway train).

If nobody correctly identifies all of the locations, the first entrant with the highest number of correct answers will win.

Winners will receive:
– Signed Manhattan LP
– VIP entry to Jeffrey Lewis’s 10/27 performance and art gallery opening at Le Poisson Rouge
– $50 gift certificate to Other Music

Please submit your answers to this address by October 23rd at 5pm EST.

Must be 21 to enter.

East Village Artist M. Henry Jones, Contemporary of Keith Haring, Dies

M. Henry Jones, a member of the East Village arts scene for over forty years, died last week (either June 16 or 17) at the age of 65. We’re told, though unconfirmed, the cause of death was a form of cancer. Jones was a neighborhood fixture for decades, in part, because of his storefront studio […]

Under the Floorboards at Long-Vacant East Houston Lot

Bereft of substantial activity in nearly two decades, the long-vacant parcel at 49 East Houston Street is in deterioration overdrive. An eagle-eyed tipster notes that the floorboards atop the existing foundation are now busted. Creating a pseudo entryway into the cellar level. Before its demise fourteen years ago, 49 East Houston had been a one-story […]
