march2008cover_2.jpg

March has been a month in flux for us at Sentimentalist Magazine. Quite a few of our main staffers had to jet off to various exotic destinations, (yours truly was transplanted last week to Austin, the month’s music capital of the world, for our annual up-to-the-minute SXSW coverage). In other words, those are a few reasons for the delay of this month’s letter and we apologize.

Spring is in the air, and just like the crocuses in Central Park and the verdant buds on the trees around town, Sentimentalist Magazine online is growing fast. We really do appreciate your sticking with us and keeping up with our daily news, reviews and our monthly cover features.

We hope you’ll feel more than a bit of lust in your hearts after reading this month’s cover story on The Kills. Or if it’s a goof you’re after, the feisty trio known as Human Giant made assistant editor Carrie Alison laugh ’til it hurt during her recent chat with them about their new season. They’ll do the same for you no doubt. Please read on and keep your comments coming. Thanks!

Happy spring,

Madeline

Adam Green: Streets as Corridors and Stories from Friends

Adam Green’s next New York City show is a big deal, even to him. He’ll be taking over the theatre district on the night of May 10th to play the venerable, velvet-seated Town Hall. It’s not only the grandness of the place that’s special; there’s also the fact that Green hasn’t played America in a year and a half…
