Nightclub Plaid threw a big free party for Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs; to hear the Village Voice's Tricia Romano tell it, the party turned out to be not so much "free" as "$20" and not so much a "party" as a "massive flop."

Nick, posting on Friendster (which is evidently his personal blog), wrote: "Not that there's really any reason to go to Plaid, but I would urge anyone to avoid that horrid place for fucking something that a lot of people worked hard on for months setting up, for fucking over all the people who came out to support something genuine, only to be humiliated by the door staff."
