“The owners of Union Hall and Floyd, Jim Carden and Andy Templar, along with Union Hall booker Jack McFadden, have been hard at work on their new venue. Earlier this year we got a glimpse of The Bell House while the space was still pretty raw, this week Sam Horine took a look inside to see how things are coming along. Located on 7th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues in Brooklyn, the venue will be opening in mid-September or early October.” [Read More]

We got word of LPR last March when Earplug ran a short story on a new venue that will be hosting experimental music in NYC. As announced in the article, they’ve recently played host to a few “soft opening” events with underground acts Carl Craig, DJ Logic and Mocean Worker (among others) and are on track to officially open in September. We thought you might be interested in this promising space so we compiled some more info for ya!
“Le Poisson Rouge is a multimedia art cabaret founded on the former site of the historic Village Gate. Dedicated to the fusion of popular art and cultures in music, film, theater, dance and fine art.

“Its broadcast of [George Carlin’s] “Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television” became a landmark moment in the history of free speech. In a 1978 milestone in the station’s contentious and unruly history, WBAI lost a 5-to-4 Supreme Court decision that to this day has defined the power of the government over broadcast material it calls indecent.” [Read More]
From the Village Voice:
“Of 2008’s five finalists, WORK Architecture Company was the firm chosen to realize its designs for “a new urban landscape.” With a project budget of $70,000—and criteria that included elements of shade, water, seating, and bar areas—husband-and-wife founders Amale Andraos and Dan Wood eschewed the former winners’ literal party predilections for a family-friendly urban farm, plunked down right in the middle of P.S.1’s concrete courtyard in Long Island City. The gravel . . . the water . . . the greenery . . . the gravel . . . it all feels very familiar. And very much like a social scene I didn’t think I’d have to revisit in my adulthood.” [Read More]
This Saturday, June 28th
Dubai Looks Like:
14,000 sqft. of intimate spaces, interactive art installations, spontaneous performance, a massive dance-floor and perfected sound-systems raising the volume on these hot summer nights.
Dubai Sounds Like:
The heartbeat of the dance floor and the whispers of strangers. This series will showcase the best up-and-coming dj talent, live bands and unexpected performance. This Saturday the music will rise from classic 45s, to funk, house and electro beats to a special Space Hause set bringing in the sunrise and beyond (expect to dance through dawn).
Within The Grand Mirage: the acclaimed DJ Duane, $mall Change, Mr. Finewine of WFMU and the Brooklyn favorite: Zemi17.
In the downstairs Dome of Dubai:
The Amoeba Collective brings a full-scale gamelan installation with dozens of instruments shipped from Indonesia and the eery beauty of Dok on Therimin. This set is something that needs to be experienced to be believed. After, the Burning Man collective Image Node takes over with Morgan Packard of Microcosm playing abstract and sexy live PA ambient electronics, Skillcrane with live PA laptop and guitar duo loved by hoboes worldwide and dj Borne welcomes the morning with a dub, experimental, downtempo DJ set.
Dubai Feels Like:
That sticky insane summer party offering the best of this city when all boundaries are abandoned. Expect a little sweat, lust and passion plus a touch of heady Danger with: roving gypsy cacophony by the beautifully fierce Lady Circus; out-sized sculpture by Ryan OConner; the Golden Bough by Project D. in the Arboreal Room; live silk screen installation by Peripheral Media Projects; and a double-dose of fire from Squiddle & Mr. Kennedy.
