Crashing Downtown's Definitive Bash

Tuesday, December 01, 2009

That's right, folks: our December outing will also mark our one-year anniversary (nothing like the paper anniversary for an online club...).

Remember our raucous and humble beginnings?  Remember when the Zipper Factory was still in business?

This year, Murray's Little Christmas is happening at the Abrons Arts Center. If any of you go, please report back.

But, for our official December outing, it seems to me we should throw ourselves a party. Or, at the very least, crash somebody else's. Tuesday, December 15, 9 p.m. till late, the Mehanata Bulgarian Bar on Ludlow will be overtaken by "downtown's definitive bash," PS 122's holiday party. Tickets are $10, and can be purchased here. Or you can use your PS122 Passport and get in at 8 p.m.

There will be party favors. There will be DJs, exclusive cabaret performances and, no doubt, excessive drinking. The vibe, I am told by a P.S. 122 insider, "is very downtown bacchanal – a wild let-your-hair-down romp with season artists, performance-lovers, supporters, friends with benefits & passport holders, board, staff etc etc." Also:

"DRESS: Anything goes. Note: Drinking helmets and dancing shoes highly recommended."

What say ye, are you in or are you out? I'm making a list. And, you know, yadda yadda yadda, I'm checking it twice...

About Performance Club

Open to everyone, the Performance Club is a freewheeling conversation about New York performance of all kinds, from experimental theater to gallery installations to contemporary dance. We go, we talk (online and at bars and cafes, with artists and amongst ourselves), we disagree and, sometimes, we change each other’s minds.
