Radical Dads are the Gowanus, Brooklyn-based trio of Lindsay Baker, Chris Diken, and Robbie Guertin (formerly of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah). In addition to pumping out great pop jams accompanied by only the most excellent artwork, the band professes their appreciation for "gummy snacks, hitting the fizz, snoozin’ on Sundays, meditation, meditating on pizza, pizza itself, sunglasses, friends, all-time peace, and the search for the attainment of the transcendence of coolness." We can get behind that. Oh, and the music rules, too. Here, we present an additional video from their recent session, featuring a performance of title track from their latest album.
The MTA began enacting its fourth system-wide fare hike in five years on March 3rd. Commuters will now pay an added $1 fee for every MetroCard purchased in an effort to clean up stations and save resources. Overall, the MTA has raised MetroCard rates a total of 38 percent since 2008. This week on BTR Pulse, Lauren Hawker asks people their thoughts on this latest fare hike.
