Boozy Brunch & Clothing Swap

Let's sip some mimosas and swap clothes! It's January, the depth of winter. We've been bored and house-bound, cleaning out our closets. Bring those unwanted, gently worn clothes to the bar and see them enjoy a second life. This is an invitation-only event to avoid those clothing swap vultures who show up with trash bags, stuff them full and split without bringing anything to the table. Er, swap. Invite your friends! But don't post to any boards!

Lucky will provide bagels and spreads, donuts and fresh fruit, heat and humor. You provide the clothes!

THIS EVENT IS BY INVITATION ONLY! If you show up with a trash bag and nothing to swap, you will be asked to leave. If you show up just to drink, that's cool! Brunch and clothes are for the swappers ONLY! NO VULTURES!

Left over clothes will be donated to charity.

Music Mondays featuring Hamell On Trial

Music Mondays featuring Hamell On Trial

Ed Hamell’s caustic wit and devil-may-care attitude has long been a favorite of anti-establishment icons Aesop Rock, Kimya Dawson, Ani DiFranco and the critical elite inciting Rolling Stone magazine to call him "Bald, bold and superbad!" Henry Rollins says "Hamell is a one man rock show!" He has been described as "Bill Hicks, Hunter S. Thompson, and Joe Strummer all rolled into one" by Philadelphia Weekly and a "one man Tarantino flick: loud, vicious, luridly hilarious, gleefully and deeply offensive" by the Village Voice. His performances invoke thoughts of the great, rebellious satirists and social commentators of the past: Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor and Bill Hicks. There's no way around his obscenity but in that is a willingness to fight for the free thinkers of the world.

Expect two sets at 8:30 and 9:30. No cover.

Burning Man Happy Hour - Alchemy Edition

Let's put a magical spin on this week's meet-up! They say that gin is just vodka with some special ingredients. We are gonna make that magic happen! Lucky will give you a taste of your choice of gin and provide you with the ingredients to make some for yourself! The minimal fee for supplies (herbs/spices and your glass jar to take home) is $10. The witchery begins at 7:00.

Everyone is welcome to attend and "spectate" but if you want to participate, you'll need to RSVP, so we know how many "gin kits" to bring in. You can RSVP simply by sending an email to luckyonb@gmail.com.

It will be the usual Burning Man Happy Hour too, with your DPW burner barmaid Pinky serving up the 2-4-1 draft beers and well drinks. Abby will be doing the alchemical instructing. And Cara shows up at 8 to take care of your needs, with those happy hour specials extended late into the night for all you dusty ones!

Music Mondays featuring La Croix

WOW. This duo cancelled THIS MORNING because they "couldn't find a mixer." I have a mixer. They didn't like the looks of it, I guess. They came by LAST NIGHT to check our tech, which I told them to do in an email on December 4. DECEMBER 4! Waiting until the night before? And then canceling less than 24 hours before the gig? Bad form. DON'T BOOK THEM.

La Croix is the side project of Brooklyn-based, French songwriter Severine, and American rock guitarist Anthony “Chio” Chiofalo. In 2017, the duo met as they were working on their respective original music. They soon began jamming on a bunch of classic songs from a variety of genres and time periods. Now, the pair has headed out into NYC to perform those songs live. 

 

Severine recently released her first solo single “Not Obsessed” and will be releasing a new single and a music video by the end of the year, as well as an EP due in 2018. Chio will be in the studio over the next few months and will also be releasing original music later in 2018.

 

You can follow their musical endeavors on their Instagram pages: @Severinemusic & @Chiosound.

Burning Man Happy Hour - Thanksgiving Eve

Burning Man Happy Hour - Thanksgiving Eve

Thanksgiving Eve was once the biggest party night in NYC. Among those "in the know," it was bigger than New Year's Eve because only the true New Yorkers went out to play. Sadly, it seems that it is no longer a big night because no one left in NYC actually LIVES in NYC. Everyone scurries home to their families. If YOU are one of those "in the know" who is a real resident, come on out and raise a glass to the season of gratitude, of coming together with family -- blood OR chosen -- and spend an warm evening with your fellow burners.

The usual 2-4-1 Happy Hour specials are extended ALL NIGHT for you dusty ones. Plus we always whip up a few more imaginative cocktails and offer some sort of freebies. Taste the new Harpoon Winter Warmer. Try one of our hot drinks. Check out our festive Thanksgiving decorations. Meet some new friends!

Club 57 Reunion Soiree

Club 57 is being celebrated at the Museum of Modern Art. We'll be celebrating them at Lucky! 

"We did it in 2010...Let's do it again before the MOMA madness begins! We have two places side by side to frolick in and catch up with each other! 
Dream Baby is a very stylish quiet lounge where we can nosh/drink/chat and Lucky is a bar with the best jukebox in the neighborhood, a faboo courtyard (will be decked out in Halloween decor) and geared towards dancing and rocking out. Hosted by Tessie Chua and Deb O'Nair! Be there or be L7!!"

Join us after 8pm to hob-nob with the performers and provocateurs that made Club 57 what it was. It will be a reunion and a little preview of tomorrow night's opening:

Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978–1983

October 31, 2017–April 01, 2018

Posted on November 18, 2016

The Roy and Niuta Titus Theater Galleries

Press Preview: Tuesday, October 31, with remarks to follow.

Remarks will be livestreamed.

The East Village of the 1970s and 1980s continues to thrive in the public’s imagination around the world. Located in the basement of a Polish Church at 57 St. Marks Place, Club 57 (1978–83) began as a no-budget venue for music and film exhibitions, and quickly took pride of place in a constellation of countercultural venues in downtown New York fueled by low rents, the Reagan presidency, and the desire to experiment with new modes of art, performance, fashion, music, and exhibition. A center of creative activity in the East Village, Club 57 is said to have influenced virtually every club that came in its wake.

Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978–1983 is the first major exhibition examining the scene-changing, interdisciplinary life of downtown New York’s seminal alternative space in full. The exhibition will tap into the legacy of Club 57’s founding curatorial staff—film programmers Susan Hannaford and Tom Scully, exhibition organizer Keith Haring, and performance curator Ann Magnuson—to examine how the convergence of film, video, performance, art, and curatorship in the club environment of New York in the 1970s and 1980s became a model for a new spirit of interdisciplinary endeavor. Responding to the broad range of programming at Club 57, the exhibition will present their accomplishments across a range of disciplines—from film, video, performance, and theater to photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, zines, fashion design, and curating. Building on extensive research and oral history, the exhibition features many works that have not been exhibited publicly since the 1980s.

Club 57 is accompanied by three film series: You Are Now One Of Us: Film at Club 57, co-organized with guest curator and defining Club 57 artist John “Lypsinka” Epperson (October 29, 2017–February 2018); New York Film and Video: No Wave–Transgressive (December 1, 2017–April 2018), and This Is Now: Film and Video After Punk 1978–1985, presented in spring 2018 in partnership with LUX and British Film Institute.

Organized by Ron Magliozzi, Curator, and Sophie Cavoulacos, Assistant Curator, Department of Film; with Ann Magnuson, guest curator.

Major support for the exhibition is provided by the Keith Haring Foundation.

Burning Man Happy Hour - Swagtastic Swagfest

It's been a month since the Man burned. You've done your laundry and stored your gear. Your hair isn't dusty...nothing is. But your heart? It will always be dusty. Yup, you're yearning for the playa. How to satisfy that yearning? Short of returning? Join us for NYC's weekly Burning Man Happy Hour!

This week's Wednesday event will be all about the SWAG! Yeah, it's Stuff We All Get! But at Burning Man it's Stuff We All Gift! Bring your swag to show off! Bring extra swag to gift! Bring your old swag to prove what a jaded fuck you are! Bring the swag you forgot to pack and give away! (Whoops!) Or just bring yourself and be a joyful recipient!

In addition to the showing, swapping, sharing and storytelling, we will have swagtastic creation stations! You'll be able to MAKE swag and gift it right on the spot! Or send it to that amazing unicorn clown who served you hot coffee in deep playa! Tools and materials will be supplied but if you have anything to add, it would be greatly appreciated. 

Also, my first gifts at Burning Man were buttons. Everyone LOVES buttons! There will be a contest for "Best Button Design." We'll have paper and pens for everyone to doodle a design. The best design will be made into a button and distributed at a future Burning Man Happy Hour. PLUS a cash prize! So start thinking about your design NOW! You can even bring a printout of your design. Everyone who attends the Happy Hour will be able to enter AND vote!

Lastly, drink specials and bargains! We will offer the usual 2-4-1 well drinks and draft beers all night long for burners. Additional specials will be added so check back. But we do love to serve up the EmergenC and Vodkas or Johnny-on-the-Spot cocktails! If it's still warm out, we'll have our famous Frozen Lemonade & Vodka! And there are always cheap beers! Maybe we'll feature Picklebacks! Who knows?

NYC Burning Man Happy Hour happens every Wednesday.
