NOTE: The best parties are the ones where there's no place you'd rather be. And anyone who's been to a few good ones will tell you that usually has more to do with who you're with than where you're at.
But we'll get to New Year's Eve in tomorrow's regular edition of the list. In the meantime, we need your help.
Broadly speaking, we've been thinking a lot about what to do in the coming year, and, on an even more fundamental level, how to be. And it's confusing. Because it feels like somehow we're not doing enough to prepare for tough times.
But here's the deal: We are not going to figure it out alone. And we know our city desperately needs us. It needs people who are engaged and passionate and not afraid. It needs people who can build new things, tell new stories, and create radically inclusive spaces and communities.
The reason why Nonsense still exists is because it serves these communities. After 16 years of publishing this list, we still think the best way to create culture is to do it yourself, to do it together. We are still charmed by novices, delighted by the sweetness of clumsy attempts. We still think this is the way to find real allies, to make space for one other. Art is too important to leave to professionals.
We need you to support this service. Your donation covers real costs and keeps us an independent, ongoing resource for do-it-yourself, do-it-together culture in New York City -- we still don't take advertising or send out sponsored posts. Please donate $15 if you want to keep it going, and a little more if we list your events. Here's a general link:
Thank you so much for your support.

nonsense nyc is a discriminating resource for independent art, weird events, strange happenings, unique parties, and senseless culture in new york city.

we like rock bands and experimental musicians and arty films and galleries and museums and big street festivals, but we can find information about all of those things in other places. we generally will not list these kind of things on their own. that leaves that other stuff, the stuff that has no name or a name that you feel really self-conscious saying out loud, like "underground."

we publish more or less once a week on fridays in easy digest format. if you sign up, the important thing to remember is that the nonsense nyc happens because of you. that means we rely on you to let us know what events you are organizing and what events you are attending. please keep us up to date and don't assume that we'll find out about something from someone else. our job is to gather, edit, organize, and filter; your's is to make interesting thing happen and let us know about them. (and we love you, and the other people on this list love you, for that effort.)

also, feel free to send us editorial comments. we certainly don't endorse every event on this list, nor do we attend all of them. that means it's nice to hear what you have to say. for instance, let us know if you had the best time of your life last weekend, or, conversely, if you felt like you were cheated out of $5 by some group that sounded good but turned out to be hippie drummers.

anyway, please enjoy this list and remember to do your part to make new york a better place to live.
