Ho-lee Shiyat. With all these earthquakes and hurricanes, I was just about to declare New York City a wasteland, but this jobless urban decay concrete shit always comes up with something to make you pay its unwarranted high rents. This time Bloomberg, fearing my departure, got on his red rotary phone in the basement map room (I picture it poorly lit with blinking fluorescent lights) and recruited all the following to play a huge festival in Brooklyn:
Xeno & Oaklander
La Big Vic
Palmetto Moon Electronic Group
Mandelbrot & Skyy
DJ sets by:
Yr Friend Matthew
Jon Williams & Rebecca Gaffney
I’m not kidding. All these guys. At once. The Neon Marshmallow Music Festival NYC 2011 will be a three-day event taking place October 14-16 at Public Assembly (extended and with added full-spectrum Bunker soundsystem) in Brooklyn. For $60, you can now acquire very limited complete passes. If you’re an asshole and need more justification for that price, then Bloomberg has also prepared an hour of Reyka vodka open bar on Friday and Saturday for all attendees. Oh god, I’m trapped here forever! Wait, Neon Marshmallow is based out of Chicago?? Goddammit! I knew this was too good to be our doing. Damn you, Bloomberg!
Important note: Neon Marshmallow released a cassette compilation with their Chicago fest back in June this year, so keep your eyes peeled or your ear to the ground or your fingers moistened and in the breeze, just in case NYC gets a corresponding comp as well.
