There's a bar on the north side of town just right off the red line stop that’s a nice low key spot. It's a spot the locals know as The Glenwood.
The Glenwood gets its name from the avenue it's built on--an old brick road a relic from times long since past. The bar itself has an old brick facade, giving the impression that it maybe from the days of bootleggers.
The joint is divided into two rooms: the entrance is where you'll find the bar. The long hard wood alcohol trove runs along the right side of the room, along a wall painted as yellow as the sun. The other side of the room is painted a contrasting purple. It's a bit reminiscent of one of Bill Cosby's sweaters.
This album is far more than a tribute album. The genesis came in 2012 when The Adage Group partnered with Round Hill music and purchased the North American publishing rights to songs from the Beatles 1963 breakout hits “I Saw Her Standing There,”“She Loves You,” “From Me To You,” “Misery,” “There’s A Place” and “I Wanna Be Your Man.” Adage CEO Herb Jordan, and legendary music business entrepreneur Owen Husney of Zoom-Muzic, executive produced BEATLES REIMAGINED and assembled a twenty-something production team including Tim Anderson (ImaRobot, Solange) and Kevin Carvel (Atlantic Records, A&M/Octone, NBC’s “The Voice”).
But that's just the paperwork. The beauty, dear reader, is the vision that gives this compilation soul. The rules were simple. Each artist had to be indie, none of the artists could be born in the era of the Beatles, none of the recordings could sound like a Beatles cover and all of the songs are from 1963-1964, the breakout period for the Beatles. Like The Beatles themselves, from those confines came something wild and unprecedented.
From the disco sizzle of Night Panther to the earnest folkiness of Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeroes, a vast array of genres are poked, prodded, and produced in this one-of-a-kind endeavor. Not enough for you? $@#% it, we'll do it live. Come on down to The Federal Bar this Sunday where Alex Ebert of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros will host the release party with performances from fellow Beatles Reimagined artists Mobley, Doom & Gloom, The Well Pennies and Gypsy Death Star. Now that's love. And with a love like that, you know you should be glad.
THE HARD DEETS Where: The Federal Bar, North Hollywood. When: Sunday, Nov. 24 11am - 2pm.

Artist Nathan Sawaya has added a new piece to his iconic Lego sculpture collection today (November 20), as he unveiled his new masterpiece this morning at Discovery Times Square. Through a process of submissions to the "What Should Nathan Build?" program through Discovery's site, New Yorker Suzan Goldstein's submission was chosen, and thus Sawaya's One World Trade Center masterpiece was born.
The breathtaking sculpture only took ten days to complete according to Sawaya, which is a breathtaking feat given the amount of detail put into the piece. The scupture will be on display from the remainder of Sawaya's 'The Art Of The Brick' exhibition, which ends its stay in NYC's Discovery Times Square on January 5, 2014.
Be sure to catch Sawaya's exhibit before it's gone, and see the stunning new sculpture for yourself!

There has been a long battle to save the iconic-historical landmark of Queens, and graffiti mecca, Five Pointz. This has been an intricate piece of Queens history for years now, and whether you're a fan of the building or not, you have heard the landmark. Owner Jerry Wolkoff has allowed street artists to create walls of art on this former warehouse since 1993. Last week, a federal judge denied the stop of the demolition of the space. This morning, it happened, and no, it wasn’t Banksy’s doing – the buffing of 5ptz, an action that no one thought would happen so soon, happened. The graffiti art landmark- seen from the Queens-Manhattan 7 Line, is closing. The space has been painted-over and demolition will begin soon following the building of new condos. Street art fans were furious to hear the news as a decade of work has been tarnished. Five Pointz attributed to the coming together of the five New York boroughs: Queens, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island, but the space is a global topic. Today a part of New York's culture and history is being defaced. True street art lovers, artists and followers can say that the demolotion of Five Pointz is their defintion of vandalizm, a deliberate destruction of or damge to public or private property. The Nitty Gritty New York City has lost this artistic spot - but we can only hope that something of the same nature evolves from this sad day.
