THE GOLDEN GIRLS BEAT UP SEX IN THE CITY, NYC



So my band, Paper Napkin, played a show at Death by Audio in Williamsburg Monday night. Ian Vanek of Japanther organized a good line-up that included Trouble vs. Glue, and Cutthroat.

Matt Reilly, also of Japanther, decorated the space with these life-size portraits of the Golden Girls fighting the Sex and the City ladies. It's a mighty fine deconstruction of the sitcoms, as Matt explained it [paraphrased badly] "It's like time travel, The Golden Girls happened first but it's actually the future of Sex in the City". If you want to dig deeper just look at the pairing of the characters. Sorry the flick is so lousy but you can see Matt out front trying to duck out of it, which is sort of nice. Below is what I captured by way of a detail:
