Lost In The Trees/The Loom Tonight @ Mercury Lounge

“For me, classical composition is a very humble thing. I'm no expert, by any means, but I am blown away by orchestral music. Ideas that are stale or old hat to classical people are still pretty magical to me. All I want is to take a pinch of that brilliance, and put it into what I do.” Ari Picker, Lost in the Trees.

Lost in the Trees are bringing their unique "orchestral folk music" to the Mercury Lounge tonight, along with like-minded openers The Loom. Note: it's an early show, with The Loom taking the stage at 6:30 (or so says Bowery.)

How Do You Get to Citi Field? Carnegie Hall.

Carnegie_metsOK, so here's a new one: Facebook fans of Carnegie Hall just got a communication offering them $30 tickets to the Mets game this Wednesday night against the Marlins. (Normally priced at $35. Bargain.) Putting aside for a moment the probability that this is a cookie-cutter program that the Mets offered Carnegie under the guise of: "This will help make you look cool to your younger patrons!" Carnegie missed a golden opportunity here. As in: Sign up for one of our 2010 subscriptions, and get a pair of tickets to the Marlins game for $10. Or, hell, just give them the pair gratis. I mean, it's not like they're the Yankees. And, who doesn't like hot dogs, really?

Oh well, at least you still get a free Mets Skyline keychain.
