Secret Project Robot’s final summer at Melrose.

Hey guys, welcome to Summer! If you’re anything like me you’re still vibing off this week’s cosmic combo of the full moon with the Summer Solstice. Ride that wave through Sunday if you can, with a few suggestions here…

But firstly, we have to tip our hat to the good folks at Secret Project Robot who recently announced that they’ll be leaving their space at Melrose Street at the end of the summer. “We’ve moved before, from Monster Island in Williamsburg to Bushwick, and we shall persevere, and move again… In many ways, We are ourselves to blame, we’ve helped to create a hipper safer neighborhood and higher rents, as so often do, have followed… ” They’re hosting a ton of events in the coming weeks, including a series of dance parties this weekend.

But wait! There’s more!


Per­form­ance artist Jake Dibel­er
Friday, June 24 – 7–10pm
Secret Project Robot | 389 Melrose St. | Bushwick
The new show by Jake Dibeler featuring Ms. William
“Per­form­ance artist Jake Dibel­er […] uses his unique brand of dis­arm­ing, semi-tra­gic hu­mor to sweep us along for the ride. Like a full-throated rendi­tion of your fa­vor­ite pop song in a sleazy bar, Dibel­er’s per­form­ances may have the ven­eer of na­ive op­tim­ism but they twang with the dis­son­ance of an emo­tion­al break­down.” -Philadelphia Weekly

Matt Freedman and Tim Spelios Endless Broken Time drumming, drawing and talking performance

Performance: Saturday, June 25th at 8pm
Studio 10 | 56 Bogart St. | Bushwick

Studio 10 is pleased to announce another Matt Freedman and Tim Spelios Endless Broken Time drumming, drawing and talking performance, the twelfth in their current monthly series.

Complementing the spoken word with the most basic story telling tools—sticks and drums to give impetus and pacing, and charcoal and paper to fill in the details—Spelios and Freedman will create an endless cycle of fractured narratives. The stories will be drawn and told by Freedman and will take their rhythm and form from the aberrant and improvised syncopation of Spelios’ broken time drumming.
