Join us at the 5th Annual Degenerate Craft Fair on December 14th from 12p-9pm and December 15th from 11a-6p at the DCTV Firehouse.

PopRally is thrilled to present a special performance by electric-guitar duo Body/Head, the current project of legendary musician, visual artist, and Sonic Youth cofounder/bassist Kim Gordon and free-noise guitarist Bill Nace. Body/Head’s sound builds on epic drones, feedback, and guitar riffs, paired with expressive vocals in a uniquely crafted take on improvisation. Staged against a backdrop of slow-motion film projections, the project comprises both a visual and musical experience, blurring the lines between mediums. Joining for a DJ set is feminist punk icon Kathleen Hanna of Bikini Kill, Le Tigre, and, most recently, The Julie Ruin.
In addition to this unique musical experience there will be a cocktail reception with beer lovingly provided by Brooklyn Brewery and exclusive access to There Will Never Be Silence: Scoring John Cage’s 4’33″ after Museum hours.
Tickets are $22 for members and $24 for nonmembers.
Join us at the official after party of Comic Arts Brooklyn (“CAB”) on November 9th. CAB, sponsored by Desert Island, features over 100 artists and publishers, reincarnating the well-regarded Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival which ran for four years. Most of the publishers are smaller houses hellbent on raising a ruckus rather than imitating a previously profitable trend, with a focus on creative expression through small runs and self-publication. Admission to the festival is free to the public.
Blow off some steam after the show at Union Pool with pints of Brooklyn Brewery beer and live music by Jeff Lewis, The Marcellus Hall Band, and the mellow rockabilly sounds of the Susquehanna Industrial Tool and Die Co. Admission to the after party is $5.
