Ho Ho Ho, fellow Bushwickians! Have you noticed that your favorite deli is now selling winter season ales and Xmas trees?! What? Also your neighbor installed some furious winter decoration that won’t stop flickering and playing Jingle Bells tune 24/7?
Indeed, holiday season has hit also our tiny town of wonders, Bushwick. And this week’s events look accordingly-we are invited to at least 35 holiday parties! Well, that’s a little too much to handle even for a proper Bushwick party animal, therefor let us tell you, which ones seem the most promising!
#1 Bushwick Daily Holiday Party @ Paper Swan Loft [Friday, 8pm-12am]
Pop Up Art Show, Fiction Readings & Music
Here at Bushwick Daily, we are super-exited for the Friday night! Our friends, the Paper Swan collective, are hosting a holiday party for us! Get ready for a magical night of winter festivities featuring a pop up art show, fiction readings and concerts at legendary Paper Swan loft (260 Moore St., # 301).
We have invited 3 awesome fiction writers: Zuska Kepplova, Maria Modrovich and Paul Rome, each of whom will read a fiction story accompanied by ambient music. The fiction section has been inspired by Bushwick’s cult writer Paul Rome and his famous readings on the verge of performance.
Pop Up art show, Fantactic Four, will bring offline for one night only, the amazing art from our sister project BushwickGallery.com Featured artists include: Nate Anspaugh, Julie Torres, Eric Trosko, and Over Under.
Paper Swan collective has been known for bringing together musicians and filmmakers for couple of years now. At their cozy loft hey have been organizing concerts and festivals including the famous Melodica Festival. At our holiday party, the Swans will present Myles Manley and Free Advice.
