3rd Ward

Hey Bloggers, and 3rd ward is having a party. I know because this weeks Nonsense NYC list says so. And in case you haven't heard, Nonsense NYC is that cool list of all these happening events throughout that city of New York on the seemingly underground and aboveground maybe, cultural art, music and entertainment scene. And so they list as one of their many weekly events that 3rd ward is having this what seems like the be all to end all with just about everyone that one can think of on the arts and cultural entertainment scene and beyond to make this party. And that event is described as follows.


Nonsense NYC presents:


A one-night physical manifestation of the Nonsense NYC email list, celebrating 10 years of weird art and culture coverage in New York City. Featuring artwork by 75 artists and collectives, an all-night dance party, and performances every five minutes. With eight installation theater spaces and a spectacular spectacle on a brand new floor at one of the best venues in Brooklyn.

From 7-9p, artists, collectives, and makers look into the future with a salon-style gallery show on the main floor. The enemy of anyone celebrating 10 years in New York is nostalgia. To fight it, we decided to ask what people want to see in the *next* 10 years. The response is overwhelming: 75 visions of what culture could be like in the next decade. From Rubulad's line-up to swim races in the Gowanus Canal, from the Danger's antics to the Bruce High Quality Foundation's gender benders, you'll see it here first.

Then, from 9p-1a, we turn the brand-new second floor space into eight different theatrical venues for a series of intimate performances starting every five minutes. You will not be able to attend everything; No one will. But a very limited number of people will witness very special events performed just for them. Featuring Lauren Darling's Hungry for More, a Lady Circus Clothing Swap, and Sxip's Quarter Hour of Charm among other delights. Be there to get tickets early.

At 1a we celebrate 10 years with a special commemorative performance and open up the entire space for dancing amid the performance detritus. Featuring DJs Joro Boro, Dirty Finger, Jaiko, Small Change, and Justin Carter until very, very late. More music by Raya Brass Band and King Expressers.

This is a special night. Dress like it.
