You. Must. Write. About. This. Band. Was the message I got from Sharon Van Etten recently, and I obliged, and here we are. They’re playing this Saturday at Glasslands with Speck Mountain and a special guest – wonder who that could be!

At the Brooklyn Night Bazaar in Williamsburg this past weekend we were thrilled to check out all the DIY designs, live music and tasty and inventive snacks on hand (peppermint patty CAKE, omg). Thousands of locals came out to see the crafts and culture and share it with friends this holiday season. Tweet us @bklyntheborough or use #BKLYN if you see any good items out in the markets and we’ll share it with the borough.

Brooklyn The Borough’s new model was developed outside of the mainstream media, yet is imbued with the lessons of traditional media’s ethical platforms for reporting and discovery. The only thing that has changed here is the business model – now it includes you. We’ve created a new role for business in media, that reflects our new independent economy and gives creative people a local platform to bring in new customers and up cycles that desire to support a local free press by and for the people.

This is massively complex and yet really simple. We need a new kind of media for a new era – internet public access if you will. Media that is for us and by us, that tells the truth as best as it can, reflects our cultures, and informs us about our community wherever we go across devices.
