Topic(s): fundraiser/event | Comments Off on 6pm to 6am — newnation in DUMBO

Date/Time: 24/07/2004 12:00 am

Hey all-
This is going to be a great and momentous party/happening/gathering (we are
hoping for 3000 attendees) that benefits several political orgs and is
organized by a group of really wonderful, creative, and ambitious folks. I
will be tabling there with YSS and other friends so come support us as well.
The tix are quite reasonable and the line-up is sweet (including our pal DJ
Rekha!). Any of you who want to bring your talents off-stage are welcome to
do so in this carnivalesque atmosphere. I¹ve seen the space, and the view is
incredible. Even if you can¹t make it, please forward to as many people as
you know. The more folks we can get there, the more $ we raise and the more
fun we all have!
In Solidarity & Revelry,
july twenty fourth
two thousand and four
six pm through six am
For twelve hours, on this midsummer’s night, explore the
space between revelry and revolution – between seduction
and sedition. Guerilla video projections and performance
patrols guide you through Dumbo’s cobblestoned canyons
of concrete and steel to 60,000 sq ft of indoor and outdoor
space at the river’s edge. There – in five areas of music
and performance, of voyeurs and visionaries, of djs and
decadence, of drinks and debauchery ­ on the broken
banks of Brooklyn is your land of the free,
your newnation…
Proceeds from this event benefit democracy in action by:
The League of Pissed off Voters swinging the election one
registered voter at a time ­ NYCSummer connecting youth
and community based organizing ­ I Am New York City, a
community media project by CounterConvention.org.
