We are saddened to announce that The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir was in a serious auto accident today. They are in hospitals receiving medical attention; most of them being treated for minor injuries. We will post more information as we can. Our thoughts are with them.
UPDATE (9/25): Ethan, Jay and Alison were treated and released from the hospital.

The "What Am I Gonna Eat For Lunch?" edition:
- We're just a few days away from the flagship 15th anniversary celebration at the Hideout Block Party -- There's still time to get tickets!
- There's a new Grammy category this year: "Americana." While the nominees for the category won't be announced for another month, USA Today runs down the year's top contenders, and includes our very own Justin Townes Earle as "Grammy-worthy." Read all about it!
- The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir will be having an unofficial, pre-Hideout Block Party record release bash at Reckless Records in Wicker Park (1532 N Milwaukee Ave) on Thursday, September 10 at 6pm. It's all-ages, free, and the band will have the new record on sale, so you can be the very first person on your block with your very own copy. Make your pals jealous!
- Hey foodies! We've got the Red Hook restaurant THE GOOD FORK catering our Brooklyn BBQ on September 26 at The Bell House. There will be FREE munchies to the first 150 people, but the good folks at the Good Fork will be selling small plates throughout the day. The Good Fork has been profiled in just about every NY foodie publication, and was recently featured on "Bobby Flay's Throwdown," where co-owner Sohui totally showed Bobby who's boss with her famous pot stickers.
