Screen Shot 2014-06-13 at 3.45.48 PM.pngThe Most WTF Ticket Announcement: The Hatsune Miku Expo is coming to NYC in October and Hatsune Miku herself will perform at Hammerstein Ballroom. Developed in Japan (natch) Hatsune Miku is  "a humanoid persona voiced by a singing synthesizer" aka a singing hologram like Tupac at Coachella or Michael Jackson at the Billboard Music Awards but in real time, like she "exists" now and sells out huge areas (watch video below). Holograms are so hot. This is the future, people. -- Maggie Dolan

Most uncomfortable four minutes of the week: Lena Dunham andSia's performance of "Chandelier" on Late Night with Seth Meyers. I think Lena Dunham was aiming for "carefree child" performance art, but it felt more like "weird drunk Aunt dancing at a holiday party." --Justin Moran
