From The New York Shitty Inbox: Stand Up! Speak Out!

I had intimated some time ago that such a forum was being organized by Lincoln Restler. I am very happy to announce that on Monday, August 22nd, starting at 6:30 p.m. Public Assembly will be hosting “Stand up! Speak out!”. Those of you who have experienced anti-LGBTQ harassment— or simply want to know what resources are available to our (growing) LGBTQ community— should make it a point to attend this event. Stand up and speak out north Brooklynites!

THIS WEEK: Living Kills & Easter Vomit!

May 10, 2011 ·
Filed under: 11211, Williamsburg, Williamsburg Brooklyn 

This item comes from a person named “JB”. He/she writes:

I’m a former Greenpoint resident and I just started an art collective with a bunch of Greenpoint/Williamsburg/Brooklyn folks called dead·pan (collective).

We’re going to be creating multimedia events and curating an online gallery — the idea is for a bunch of people working in different mediums to collaborate on events and content.

It involves Greenpoint photographer Hannah Thomson, Greenpoint filmmaker James Jones, Williamsburg residents Eva Talmadge (www.tattoolit.com) and Dustin Long (author of Icelander, McSweeney’s &  Grove Press), Susan Y. Chi (The Forgotten Borough), Audrey Ference (the L magazine’s “Natural Redhead”) Simone Heusler (artist, textile designer, musician), The Poetry Club Art Space, KGB Bar, Kino Films, and bands The Tablets, The Living Kills, and Miezekatze.

We’re already planning a second multimedia July 9 event to help raise funds for the Greenpoint Reformed Church Soup Kitchen with Katherine Carlton, who may have been in touch already.

Our first event is Friday May 13 at Public Assembly. I’ve attached a flyer here. You should come out and we’d love it if you gave it a shout out, if you felt so inclined. It should be a lot of fun. Some of the giveaways include free Drawn &  Quarterly books, HarperCollins books, music, and distilled alcohol (bourbon). We’ll also have food from Nha Toi and Van Leeuwen.

I have a confession to make: I could care less about the foodstuffs (whoever nice they may be) these folks had me with Easter Vomit!

TOMORROW: Mister Market

This item has been brought to my attention by that dynamic duo, Tommy and Roy, better known as the Alter Boys. Tomorrow they, along with a number of other notable north Brooklyn businesses (like Kill Devil Hill!) will be selling their wares at the Mister Market. The whole shebang kicks off at noon. Why not swing by and see what they’re got cooking?

You can get more information about this event by checking out Mister Market’s web site.

In closing (and on a shameless self-promoting note) I’d like to remind everyone that the “closing reception” for my photography show at Creek & Cave is tomorrow starting at 3:30 p.m. You can get the full 411 by clicking here.

Miss Heather

P.S.: Lest any of you are wondering why I put “closing reception” in quotation marks it is because I have gotten word that my show has been extended! And somehow “middling reception” does not strike me as being very snappy.

From The New York Shitty Inbox: Much Ado About This Weekend

Or would that be much to DO this weekend? If what I found in my inbox today is any indication there is a log going on this weekend. Mark writes:

Hey Miss Heather did you see this? Papacito’s is celebrating it’s pseudo-one year birthday and recently acquired liquor license. They’re inviting people to come celebrate with free food and tequila. Pretty cool!

Most cool indeed! Among the goodies promised are free tequila shots from 11:00 – 1:00 a.m. and live mariachi music. Check it out!

If mariachi is not your cup of tea, a good friend of mine (and fabulous D.J.), The Professor, will be spinning an evening of “Motor City rock, soul, punk and psycho-funk” at Greenpoint’s very own Boulevard Tavern. Having known the Professor for some time I can attest to his outstanding taste in music. Go. You will not be disappointed!
