You know how it goes…. It’s a Friday afternoon and the entire Bushwick buzzes because of all the great events that are going on in our beloved hood. It can get really difficult, I know… Because there is only one Friday April 1, 2011 night; only one good-fun-seeking yourself and there is only [this] many events you can attend in a night.

But let me tell you one thing… The best fun will be in Brooklyn Fire Proof tonight, because the Birdsong Collective is celebrating their 3rd year. This cool Brooklyn writing, art and music collective makes zines, hosts readings, and throws art and music shows. The collective’s founder Tommy Pico promises only the best fun tonight. A bunch of bands will play and several Birdsong-related artists will be selling  limited editions of their prints. The party starts at 8pm and the admission is donation based and the money will go to support the production of Birdsong #15, a Brooklyn-based full color bi-annual lit/art/interview zine. See you there!
