Happy Monday! Before you take a breath to start the new week in the beloved pigeon-town, brace yourself for these 5 amazing events this week that shall under no circumstances be omitted in your social and cultural calendar.
Also note that 3 of 5 top weekly events are on Wednesday! But don’t worry, inhale, exhale, heeeeere we go, Wednesday!
I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since we wrapped up last year’s Bushwick Open Studios. The most amazing festival in Bushwick and possibly on the entire planet, edition 2012, is almost here! The first of the community mixers is coming up this Wednesday at The Bodega Wine Bar. Arts in Bushwick volunteers will be answering your questions, and assigning registration codes to participating art spaces. If you want to participate, it’s mandatory to attend at least one of the meetings, so why not do it early?
Wednesday late night at the dining room of Northeast Kingdom will be fun! Classical performance by some of the most favorite Bushwick peeps will include Paul Rome, Oliver Ralli and Roarke Menzies for starters. A portion of the night’s proceeds will go to fund Calypso at The Bushwick Starr.
We are excited to see that after uber-successful reading series Fireside Folies, another reading series is launching in Brooklyn Fire Proof. H.I.P. is curated by Erin Harris, Brittney Inman, and Kim Perel. The 1st reading will include works of fiction, non-fiction, poetry and also translation.
On Saturday night head to Ridgewood! Joe Balweg and Andrea Bergart have curated their 3rd pop up show at Joe’s studio. These guys have a great taste, and Joe’s studio is simply amazing. Pop in for the pop up show, and enjoy colors and awesome painting from Bushwick/Ridgewood area.
The Vis-à-Vis Project is a festival celebrating DIY culture of Brooklyn, collectives, artists and musicians. We wrote about this awesome project earlier here on Bushwick Daily. In order to make the June festival happened, these guys are raising some funds, and as is a good Bushwick fundraising tradition, a lot of good music and food are involved. This benefit party promises four bands, DJs, performances and free dinner! Sliding donation of $7 to 15 will get you all that topped with a good feeling.
