The music PR and management firm Girlie Action Media invited me to go to their annual holiday party at the Wired Pop Up Store, on the corner of West 42nd Street and Broadway. (For you New Yorkers who remember it, it’s the site of the old ESPN Zone which closed last year.) I went with my buddy Abdul and of course, most of the pictures from today’s post come from that show. Free alcohol is a plus but so are attractive young women, an impromptu performance by Amanda Palmer on her ukelele, a set by the Phenomenal Handclap Band and my man Rene Lopez on the 1’s and 2s. I’m still trying to catch up on tons of other stuff but let’s get to the photos, eh?
This was one of the cooler things they had up — a virtual keyboard superimposed on to a counter top. We tried it but somehow we couldn’t seem to figure out where the typing was showing up or if it was working. If it did work, I gotta admit that’s something I’d spent a few bucks on to show off.
The Dresden Dolls’s Amanda Palmer singing a wryly ironic song about the ukelele. Palmrer broke out into laughter while singing the song herself.

Yes folks. I was here. And maybe you were here at some point in time. Aren’t we all?
