Cro-Mags co-founder Harley Flanagan had his day in court back in September for the knifing incident that transpired last summer during the inaugural CBGB Festival. But the hearing at 100 Centre was ultimately postponed to December 5.

Last week, Flanagan showed up to court again, and with the same result. Another adjournment, this time until January 23. However, New York Natives believes that the rescheduled hearing is technically beyond the so-called statute of limitations for the Assistand District Attorney to bring the case before a Grand Jury (necessary for criminal indictment). Afterward, the bassist was quoted as saying, “This whole thing is a joke and has become as boring as the people who pretend to represent New York Hardcore these days.”

As we first reported, the bassist entered the VIP area of Webster Hall and slashed Mike “The Gook” Couls twice and William Berardo above the left eye. Flanagan was then tackled into submission mere feet from our perch. NYPD later determined that the weapon of choice was a five-inch blade.

Kitty’s Canteen Nabs Adjacent Space for Takeout Counter

Over at the old Pizza Junkie/Douma Pizza on Stanton Street, a replacement is finally identified.

Let’s just say that the cat graphic is apt. […]

Strung-Up Mutant Rats Likely an Attempt to Call Attention to NYCHA Infestation

Monday morning, we posted a rather gruesome image of three rat carcasses strung from scaffolding outside the Baruch Houses. In fact, these were some of the biggest rats we’ve ever seen. The violent display, while gagworthy, was seemingly out of nowhere, and without context. A mystery on the FDR. Until now. The rat adornment was apparently […]
