Club 57 Tribute Party

Club 57 Tribute Party

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

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.

Music Mondays featuring Reverend Rhythm

The Return of Reverend Rhythm's Rockin Art and Music Revival!

HOT on the heels of July's appearance, Reverend Rhythm returns!

Reverend Rhythm is a native East Village resident. He cut his performance teeth at Dan Lynch's, Nightingale and in the NYC subway. He has a base in blues and rock but there is world feeling about his music.

His life changed when the winner of the first Sekovia fellowship played the Reverend's old beaten up nylon string guitar and made it sing. The classic hand style was then pursued. The music changed and has continued to grow.

He is a "now" player, often performing what comes to mind. He has a high energy show. It is obvious that he loves it.

He has played in clubs from San Antonio to Syracuse, New Orleans to New York and is allways demonstrating that creating is the answer!

In addtition to his music, The Reverand will present matted and mailable art by a number of artists, available in exchange for a donation.

There will be two sets, at 8:30 and 9:30. No cover.
