NY Times writer: Hudson rocks

Sep 04, 2010 10:43 pm
The much-hyped New York Times travel piece about Hudson's music scene by Carrie Neiman Culpepper turned out to be incomplete. How do you write about Hudson music without featuring Bunnybrains and Alexander Turnquist, the two internationally known figures in town? There is a Nathaniel Brooks photo from the recent WGXC Vetiver fundraiser at the Cannonball Factory; a photo of the (p.m.) wine bar, but no mention that DJ Lunar Moss is a fixture there Thursday nights; and not a word about the hip hop scene or Basilica Industria or Savoia or Club Helsinki, and only a passing reference to a Badila (Mother Fletcher is a reggae band?). In this case, The New York Times can recognize that something is there, but does not understand what exactly it is.
