“Life is a Nightmare” + More Brooklyn Music Videos & Show Roundup 3.6

I have cool music videos to share and show recommendations for the remainder of the week, often overlapping from the very same band.

Workout shot the video for “Life is a Nightmare” on India Street, among other locations in Greenpoint and North Brooklyn. The song struts along with crunchy guitar riffs, giving the titular chorus a contradictory feel-good sentiment. You can check the band out tonight at the Stonewall Inn (53 Christopher Street). A party bus will pick up at Bia in South Williamsburg. More details here. Continue reading

Benefit for Public School Art Programs – at Wythe Hotel tomorrow (2/25)

As a product of the NYC Public Education system and an art lover, I am excited to let you know about a Benefit for Public School Art Programs, taking place at Wythe Hotel (80 Wythe Ave) tomorrow February 25, 2014 at 8pm.

Kids need art, and we all know that art programs are underfunded. This article on the importance of art in child development from PBS.org cites that, “art education strengthens problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. The experience of making decisions and choices in the course of creating art carries over into other parts of life.”

And according to a report by the Center for Arts Education in NYC, “in schools with the lowest graduation rates,  where arts could have had the greatest impact - students have the least opportunity to participate in arts learning.”

Let’s change that – and have some fun!
