Dancin' On The D

Williamsburg venue Glasslands was featured in tonight’s episode of Girls, hosting a performance by the rapper Lil Freckles prior to Marnie and her new romantic interest Desi taking the stage. You can listen to “Dancin’ On The D,” the song she performed, above.

Lil Freckles is the alter-ego of a 26-year-old production assistant on the show named Emma. She records rap recaps of each episode on her Instagram and will have a mixtape out soon.

She’ll also be involved with some of the writing on Season 4.

In honor of Glasslands Gallery in Brooklyn announcing it’s closing at the end of 2014 today, here’s a photo from one of MGMT’s many, many shows there (this one is from a secret show in 2009, with Caroline from Chairlift).

After some very unofficial counting off of the top of my head, I’m pretty sure MGMT has played at Glasslands more than any other venue, not counting their college shows.
