Things to Do in Brooklyn When You're Broke

The six or seven of you who actually follow this blog may not even be in close enough proximity to actually attend the above event but I may as well let you all know that Above and Below, which began as a six week long exhibit in Costa Mesa's The Box Gallery, is now set to be hung in South Slope Brooklyn's own Roots Cafe. After an exhibit in Andrew's Art Museum NC we're happy to show this work to an entirely new crowd and we couldn't have hoped for a better environment in which to do it.

I won't wax poetic about the place because my praise for this establishment and it's staff would never end.
I'll just say this; if you're in Brooklyn on July 30th and you're looking for the most interesting thing you could do or see, come to Roots Cafe on Fifth Ave and 18th St. This night in particular will feature the same audio treatment as both the previous openings. The night will begin with the Hoor-paar-Kraat soundtrack to the exhibit "Taxonomy of Divine Organisms" but the similarity ends there. The remainder of the evening will be at the hands of such built in talents as owner Jamey Hamm and recent Oregon refugee Ryan Lamm. Also, there's some guy named Johnny. I don't know his last name but he goes by "The Johns" and he's amazing. Goat Eater will be releasing a tape of his in the future but I'll talk more about that later.

For now, just be there and bring your own bottle. While you're at it bring two; one of them being for me.
