Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Garcia: Radio that Changed Lives
We are honored to host this truly epic night for the neighborhood. DJ Rob Swift is back this week for another master-class, but this time he is bringing reinforcements: legendary OG tastemakers Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Garcia! This is 100 percent free and not to be missed. Bonus late-night disco set from Flattopps' house DJ, Chuck E. Mendez.
33-06 Ditmars Boulevard, Astoria, Queens
***** Also on FRIDAY *****
On Friday night, there will be a concert performed by the Giegling Ensemble (Ateq, Edward, Kettenkarussell, VRIL) where they will join forces and collaborate and improvise Giegling's non-dancefloor music. There will also be a pop up record shop where you can buy rare and out of print Giegling records, including a special record you can only buy on this tour. Also, many of the visual artists who are a key part of the Giegling collective will have work on display. We have a few other surprises up our sleeves as well.

This mailing list is announce-only.
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.
We will never sell or give away your email address or any other information.
