Mornin’ Playtonics,

It’s a new year, but I’m still up to my old ways. For those of you who don’t know, in addition to writing semi-daily for Playtonic Dialogues, I am also a contributing photographer and writer for The Bowery Presents The House List. Since moving to New York, I have written reviews for Animal Collective and Arcade Fire, as well as many other concerts produced at all New York venues currently booked by The Bowery Presents, including the Mercury Lounge, the Bowery Ballroom, Webster Hall, the Music Hall of Williamsburg, Terminal 5, the Brooklyn Bowl, and more… Next month I will be contributing reviews for the following shows:

2/3: Nicolas Jaar @ Music Hall of Williamsburg

2/17: Saul Williams @ Music Hall of Williamsburg

2/25: Sharon Van Etten @ Bowery Ballroom

Look out for my reviews and photos which will be on The Bowery Presents The House List as well as this site.

Oh hay-hay, Playtonics!

I’m Becca Jay, the artist formerly known as Rebecca A. Welcome to the Astro-Synchronic Hustle: the land from which all bizarre creations are born. If you believe that the concept of coincidence is a whack explanation for crazy, randomly connected experiences then we have something in common. I believe the most meaningful present day experiences are somehow eerily linked to events that happened in the past.

Do you long for synchronistic activity? Do you dig synaptic chemistry? Do you love the challenge of a good, sweaty hustle? Most importantly, are you down with music and its ability to manifest all of the above?

I offer you my love of hip-hop in its awkward adolescent form: equipped with the cracking voice and moderate acne (aka raw hip-hop). That love combined with my keen eye for the synchronistic threads that tie together all music from the past, present, and future produces an insightful perspective on music and how it fits into the grand scheme of the universe.

Are you down for the ride?

Check back on Monday for Becca’s first post titled “The Highest Power”
