Rachael Pazdan, founder of Brooklyn-based HYPNOCRAFT, has been organizing artistically interdisciplinary performances at a grassroots level since she was a 19-year-old SUNY Purchase College student.
Her latest project is a monthly residency called At the Inn. She also curated The Hum, the popular, hypnotic

Cuddle Magic, an experimental folk-pop band, plays “baroque dance listening music that unfolds in waves of vocal harmony, contrapuntal brass and woodwinds, and dense wordplay,” as described on their music label’s

The band will be showcasing their inventiveness when they open for indie-dance band
Rubblebucket at 8pm tonight at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. The Brooklyn-based rock band Alberta Cross is also on the bill. VIDEO
