  • NEWS: MINITEK PREVIEW

    By Melena Ryzik – NYTimes

    “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]

  • NEWS: MCCARREN PARK REDESIGN

    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]

  • NEWS: BEACON RENOVATION

    By Glenn Collins – NYTimes

    “It almost became a grocery store in the 1970s. In the 1980s, it was nearly jackhammered into a cavernous disco with a triple-tiered restaurant. Somehow it escaped becoming a multiplex. And through 78 years, the neglect of the Beacon Theater in Manhattan — aside from occasional spasms of partial renovation — has often been profound.” [Read More]
