Seattle is where non-conformist music and independent radio took hold, and that spirit has never been more relevant than it is today. We put down roots there with Ace Hotel Seattle, the first Ace ever, and it will always feel like home. The ashen skies, reams of flyer molting from telephone poles and transcendent coffee are indelibly engraved in the narrative tableau of the formative years of DIY culture.
We’re honored to keep the noise alive with our second year of live broadcasts with Seattle’s own KEXP during CMJ. We’re more thrilled than ever to host three days of bands and DJs from independent labels in the lobby at Ace Hotel New York, powered by Toyota’s Free Yr Radio. A stalwart of Seattle’s music history, Art Chantry, presents an archival show of Seattle rock posters, Thanks for the Memories. Art’s poster work for emerging 90’s band influenced several generations of graphic designers and exemplifies the strength and dynamism of Seattle’s music culture.
Art is also creating a poster for the Ace x KEXP broadcasts — screenprinted by DL Screenprinting in Seattle, a print shop specializing in artist print editions and show posters by poster artists like Jermaine Rogers, Emek, Brad Klausen, Justin Hampton, Rob Jones and Gregg Gordon. The limited edition poster will be available exclusively at Ace NYC during the broadcasts.
All sets will be broadcast live over the airwaves in Seattle and everywhere else online and via podcast. Keep an eye out here for real time posts, photos, videos and interviews.

Let’s hear it for “girl in headphones.” This tireless cliche works hard to let you know that you’re visiting a music blog, community, or service. How can you tell? Well, she’s wearing headphones, and she’s really engrossed in whatever she’s listening to. Oh, “girl in headphones” listens to all kinds of music, but all of it is best appreciated with her eyes closed. 
How many girls in headphones can you find on music sites around the web? We’ve got some SIEGE STEALTH earbuds to give away to three readers who send in the most GIH sightings. Here’s how to play:
• collect links to all sites featuring a girl in headphones in a single post, tag it with #hypem, and send it to us here
• “girl in headphones” must be in the site’s identity (ie, can’t be a single blog post)
• “girl in headphones” can be in any medium (photograph, illustration, etc)
Contest ends on April 20th. Top three posts with the most links win!

Moviegoers, Baghdad

Moviegoers at Baghdad’s first 4-D cinema get an extra thrill from shaking seats and wind machines during a 3-D sci-fi film. During the worst years of violence, families stayed home to watch TV or DVDs. Most cinemas closed, as did this one, though it has plans to expand and reopen.
