The Creators Project delivers unforgettable events celebrating art, music, and technology worldwide

New York City summers consist of two things: unbearable heat, and cultural events. And while the first makes for some stinky subway rides, the latter provides an array of free concerts in our parks, and so many opportunities to see music you may not normally get a chance to experience live.

This summer in particular began with a splash, as the first in a series of events called, The Creators Project, kicked off in the meatpacking district of NYC. Hipsters from every path of life assembled for one day only in the Milk Studios office (turned party house) to celebrate a mosh pit of art, music, and technology. With partners such as Intel and VICE (one of my faves!) it was guaranteed to be a sweet time.

Tracy Bonham talks new album, Steven Tyler’s love of slides, crying on Stevie Wonder’s suit, and, of course, the song that started it all

Many a music lover know of Tracy Bonham thanks to her Grammy-nominated debut, The Burdens of Being Upright, and its quirky, unforgettable star single, “Mother Mother.” However, fewer know (shame on you!) of the numerous releases, both full-length albums and EPs, that followed, delivering the same high caliber of original, infectious songs as Burdens. So, you owe it to yourself to add some more Bonham to your CD rack (um, I meant iPod), and now is the perfect time to do so, as she gears up to release her first full-length album in five years, Masts of Manhatta, on July 13th.

The R&RR recently had the chance to catch up with Bonham and talk Masts, Steven Tyler’s love of slides, crying on Stevie Wonder’s suit, and, of course, the song that started it all.
