I'd love to give each of these events a cozy little post of their own, but lo there is so much going on this weekend. What are these events, you ask? Well, firstly Bushwick Open Studios is going on all weekend. Secondly, thirdly, fourthly, and ok, I'll just do it like I always do
Start your night off with a little light mental trauma, courtesy of GEA's art and Pendu Gallery. 7-10 pm @442 Lorimer #4. Continuing on. Sorry about the poster, Dad
This arts and crafts skull is here to tell you that Popo, Light Asylum, Sundelles, and Translations are playing at Glasslands (289 Kent) for $10. Doors are at 9. This show should fill up fast, so don't pregame too hard. So very glad Light Asylum is back from conquering the universe
Prince Rama (pictured), HIGHLIFE, Amen Dunes, and W.H.I.T.E are going to play music that someone is probably already working on making up new genre names to describe for the benefit of the stalwart analog format live music listings resource known as Showpaper. Yay, Showpaper! One thing you can't do with a blog: use it clean up the coffee you just spilled all over your floor. Yeah, I'm drinking coffee at night. Don't judge. I have a problem. It's at Monster Island Basement (lodged in the ground underneath 128 River), so you know it's gonna be fun. Show starts at 8 and the cost $8ish
Little Women, Shearing Pinx, Nu Sensae, Okie Dokie, and The Dreebs want to put distorted guitars very far into your ears. It's the kind of music that makes people move around and shove each other and stuff. Who does that? Should be good. Details on flyer. BYOB is nice
Late night dance party that is also for the benefit of Showpaper. DJs that are worth dancing to. Details on the flyer. Magic in the air. Blood on the dance floor. Words I am typing
