1. If you like EBM music, you need to see the Crüxshadows at your next opportunity. Totally worth the 4 hour drive to Albany from Montréal.

2. The Sol LeWitt exhibit at MASS MoCA is made of pure win. You have approximately 25 years to go see it, so there’s no excuse to miss out. MASS MoCA is in the small town of North Adams – about 1.5 hours out of your way to make the round trip if you’re driving to New York (or Albany) and 2 hours out of your way if you’re heading to Boston.
