Astronomical Kid Will Perform “Stop Looking at My Moms” at the Village Voice Web Awards Tuesday


Tomorrow night, the Village Voice‘s first annual Web Awards will take place at Santos Party House from 7 to 10pm. Comedian Todd Barry will deliver the funny, our resident hokey pokey expert Christopher R. Weingarten will spit out the condensed version of his 140 Character Conference Twitter rant, and the winner of New York’s best music site will be announced. (Much love to the kind typists who voted for Sound of the City, but we can’t do that.) And now we can also announce that Astronomical Kid, the Bed-Stuy high-school freshman best known for defending his mama against sketchy-dude ogling, will open the ceremony with his much-blogged “Stop Looking at My Moms.” We have no idea how this happened either.

Doors open at 7pm, but Astro will go on at eight o’clock sharp. There will be free beer, Finger on the Pulse twins Darin and Greg Bresnitz will DJ, and expect plenty of stupid Internet jokes. Want to come? E-mail me at and I’ll send you an invite. See you there.
