$30.00 Day of Show

“One of the stirring things about the video of Mr. Hsieh’s performance when seen today is the incidental evidence it gives of how radically the city has changed in a quarter-century. By 1981 it was a pretty run-down; the 1970s had been a rough time. But partly for that reason artists could still afford to live and work here and make the streets of neighborhoods like the East Village and the Lower East Side extensions of their lives and their art.
This is no longer possible to the same degree or in the same way, and maybe it is no longer desired. The art world is more professionalized now; there’s more money, and it is spread around a little more evenly. And artists, at least in Manhattan, aren’t concentrated in neighborhoods anymore. The show tacitly acknowledges this.” [Read More]

“An empty lot in Coney Island is not the likeliest place for an electronic music festival. But then New York City isn’t the likeliest place for an electronic music festival either. For years the tightly knit collection of techno fans here has complained that their scene is underrepresented, with only a few regularly scheduled club nights dedicated to the kind of minimalist beats that often fill stadiums in Europe.
This weekend a pair of underground promoters will try to prove that the city can support its own mini version of Mutek, the annual electronic music and “digital creativity” festival in Montreal, or Movement, a similar event in Detroit. The Minitek Festival, scheduled to run Friday through Sunday, will have daytime shows in a tented space within screaming distance of the Cyclone, and nightly parties at the Penn Plaza in Midtown Manhattan. (A schedule is at minitekfestival.com.)” [Read More]

From Gowanus Lounge:
“The renderings came with the caveat that they are “drafts” and the reminder that, of course, the Landmarks Preservation Commission has to sign off on any alterations to the landmarked structure. The renderings come in summer and winter versions, showing the pool version in the summer (along with the concrete peninsula that would jut into part of the pool) and the ice skating rink of the summer. There are also some diagrams below of what would be inside the existing buildings.” [Read More/See Renderings]
