A simple, temporary screening room; a neighborhood portrait studio, a room of participatory projects; and an on-going round-table discussion; all of these will be part of this pop-up installation at 306 Union Ave, the storefront just next door to UnionDocs. Members of the UnionDocs Collaborative, invited community leaders, and spontaneous drop-ins will gathering each evening in the space. Tea, coffee, and snacks will be served to fuel an ongoing series of small but vital connections. This opening from 7-11pm is the first of eight evenings we’ll host at the space. Open nightly – Oct 23 (except the 19).
Doors open at 9pm at our space on 322 Union Ave for the party. Please join us for some drinks and tunes courtesy of:
FLORENT GHYS // 10PM
Florent Ghys is a French composer and double bass player from Bordeaux, France. ”He creates highly contrapuntal, post-minimalist chamber music showcasing intelligent multi-tracking and inventive use of electronics and sampled speech. On the surface, his music is lighthearted and easily engaging, with whimsical loops and repetitions dancing around each other, creating clever and pleasing rhythms. Acoustic bass lines interweave creatively and buoyantly with layered instrumental tracks, electronics or processed speech. These seemingly simple elements are carefully crafted, however, and pieced together very deliberately.” – WQXR radio. The label ”Cantaloupe” has just released a new album called ”Baroque Tardif” in September 2011.
STRANGE RIVALS // 10:45pm
Strange Rivals are a Brooklyn-based three-piece.They have been described as such: “Some of the ecstatic children, jumping through the trees, die high above the ground; their delightful shrieking matched only by the blinding spring sun and primary-colored sheen of vaporous cloud-cover, thinning in the morning heat. Their hearts – too small, beating too fast – burst apart at the ventricle seams.” They lick faces to take the drugs to make music. Music: strangerivals.bandcamp.com
PUNKS ON MARS // 11:30PM
Ryan Howe (Pimples in 3D) has a new group and they sound like mutated bubble gum from out of this world. ”POM use of production only serve to thicken their sound, melding voices, drums and pogo-guitar licks into a candy-coated, pop picnic.” -Ryan Ellis, Weekly Tape Deck. Check out Hey Tiffany! and Glitter on Mars on Altered Zones.
