I Love Franklin Ave isn't going to make it to the Brooklyn Blogfest tomorrow after all, despite a nice mention in the Brooklyn Paper, but instead, we're celebrating our 400th post with a shoutout to three fellow bloggers who have some interesting stuff going:
1. In the spirit of Saturday's music post, I urge all of you to check out Listen Up, an old friend's excellent music blog, which consistently has solid tunes on the streaming player (unlike me, he knows how to actually use the internet), as well as links to great videos and interviews (like me, he's a Hold Steady fan).
Bonus: He's got a great Flickr photostream, too.
Double Bonus: I just heard this track for the first time today (if you listen to it, give it until the first chorus). I really like it. I have no business music blogging, but nonetheless, it brought me joy.
2. After a nice comment from a fellow UChicagoan on my uberpost two weeks back, how could I NOT link her great Brooklyn photo-blog, For The Love of Brooklyn? Give it a look.
3. Finally, another old friend has launched an ambitious project to explore NYC and find love (or at the very least, a whole lot of fun) by taking 24 dates to 24 secret sites in the Five Boroughs, in conjunction with Key to the City, the public art project that's encouraging New Yorkers to explore the city and share their passions for it with one another. She'll be documenting the whole endeavor on her new blog, Key 2 the City, Key 2 my Heart, and I can promise you it won't be boring.
