Headbanging all night would give anyone a hangover. Just ask the hard-partying guys behind Grill 'Em All Burgers, the long running heavy metal-themed burger truck that set up a brick and mortar base earlier this year in Alhambra. Now, for those not intimately familiar with the landscape of Los Angeles, Alhambra is part of the rolling procession of suburbia that moves west from downtown and doesn't stop until it burns up somewhere near the Salton Sea. "Valhalla", as Grill 'Em All's burger base is known, sits next to a Menchie's frozen yogurt and within thrashing distance of an Applebee's. Still, these dudes know how to rock.
Mark Wood's "Electrify Your Strings!" music education program is coming to NYC and we're hoping to create an event that will grab people's attention on a grand scale.
With 7 schools spanning the 5 boroughs and Long Island (Fort Hamilton High School and Brooklyn Technical High School representing Brooklyn; Talent Unlimited High School representing Manhattan; Celia Cruz High School representing the Bronx; Bayside High School representing Queens; Curtis High School representing Staten Island; and Westbury High School representing Long Island), we're shining a spotlight on great music educators and their talented students.
Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) will be a guest artist, and Billy Joel will also be lending his support!

Last Friday, while biking to Brooklyn from Manhattan, my dad called me. I was on Broadway in SoHo, so I stopped at a corner and chatted with him for a few minutes until this purple Dodge Challenger approached me at the turn. It was one of the cooler Challys I had seen in recent memory, so it caught my eye like others haven't in the past. Despite the tinted windows, I managed to catch a glimpse of the driver's face and thought, "Hmm . . . is that . . ?" Then I looked to the rear as it turned from Broadway and saw the license plate that said WIDOWMAKER. That's when I knew it was Dee Snider, former singer of Twisted Sister, free speech advocate, House of Hair deejay and, apparently, Celebrity Apprentice. I told Dad, "Hey, I gotta go . . . [click]" and gave chase. Two blocks later I was able to catch up to him but he wouldn't step out.
Can you blame him?
