Some interesting weekend reading
Since it's the weekend, and since I'm in New York City (more on that later), I thought I'd link to a couple cool pieces from other local blogs. They're a little on the long side, but they're both great reads.
Gutter Magazine dug up a historical profile of the old North Avenue disco scene. The piece, written by a University of Baltimore student, profiles 1515 and Odell's from the perspective of someone who just missed the disco era.
Quarterlife Party, a blog run in part by Midnight Sunner ryan97ou, just published its Top 10 Albums of 2009 list. Unlike many other lists I've seen this year, Quarterlife's descriptions are geared toward music fans -- not music snobs.
