Day Drinking to Fight Parkinson’s at Good Co. Bar on Sunday (4/6)

There are few better ways to spend a Sunday afternoon in the spring than meeting your friends at a sweet bar in the neighborhood to have a few drinks.

My fellow Greenpointers, I cordially invite you to meet me just south of the Greenpoint border this Sunday 4/6 at 3pm at Good Co Bar (10 Hope St) in Williamsburg to toast to spring (the sun is supposed to be out!) and help me rid the world of Parkinson’s Disease. Continue reading

Supporting sets by Norwegian musician Maya Vik, Gordon Voidwell, and DJ Thanksgiving Brown all drew from the same well of 80s synth-funk worship that Dâm has made his name on over the past 20 years.
