The Day | Nublu Celebrates 10 Years

@ Trash & VaudevilleJoann Jovinelly

Good morning, East Village.

According to the Post, a judge has tossed out a request by Lou Reed and John Cale for a court order declaring that Andy Warhol’s foundation didn’t have the right to use the iconic banana that appears on a Velvet Underground cover.

Chez Andre, the Standard East Village’s pop-up club, gets rave reviews from the Observer. Its Friday night debut was “packed with the likes of Theophilus London, Jay McInerney, Angela Lindvall, Olivier Zahm and more gorgeous people than have been assembled in one place since, well, last Fashion Week.”

Embattled Avenue C club Nublu will celebrate its 10th anniversary with a concert at Le Poisson Rouge on Thursday. According to Artist Direct, the show will feature “four great bands that regularly call Nublu home: Hess Is More, Wax Poetic, Love Trio, Clark Gayton and a new addition of Sabina Sciubba of Brazilian Girls. The evening will also include DJ sets by Greg Caz, Modest P, Alex From Tokyo and Vladimir Radojicic, and special video productions courtesy of Special K!”

A member of quintessential East Village band Sonic Youth had an art opening Friday night. Capital New York dropped into Kim Gordon’s new show at 303, and so did Carlos Quirarte of the Smile.

Capital dips into the new Dirt Candy cookbook, which features chef-owner Amanda Cohen at her finest. “In addition to sharing recipes, the book serves as her platform to bash some of the myths that surround the food industry, and restaurants in particular. Her targets include: sketchy building contractors and ridiculous customer requests (like the diner who asked for all her food to be blended before being brought to the table), as well as clueless food writers who like to imagine chefs skipping around farmers’ markets and whipping up elaborate meals at home (‘I live on takeout and leftovers,’ Cohen writes), and whimsical foodies who insist that pickles are ‘magic.'”
