Local band Nuclear Family Fantasy is having their first music video premiere party this Sunday, October 29 at legendary Bedford Ave bar Rosemary’s Greenpoint Tavern (188 Bedford Ave) from 4-5pm. The event and the video both serve to raise awareness about the Fight for $15 movement, and to raise money for low-wage worker Fran Marion, who recently lost her home. Her full story in The Guardian is moving, and worth a read. The Fight for $15 movement seeks to encourage businesses (and government) to raise minimum wage to $15 per hour, because for most Americans living below that amount is unsustainable, especially with a family.
While you’re watching the video (and dancing to the live band) on Sunday, you can snag a taco from Tacos Lokos 4Ever (who pop up at local bar Brooklyn Safehouse from time to time), and The Greenpoint Tavern’s namesake, Rosemary (she’s 86!), will be in attendance, presumably to rock out right along with everybody!
