Talented actors perform cult classics for a live audience. One night only. A new show every month–comedies like The Princess Bride, Back to the Future, and Ghostbusters. Each movie comes with a list of buzzwords and phrases–when you hear one, a bell rings and everybody drinks! The actors are in on the fun, too.

Pecas Goo Deep Sea Peach Tree Greetings - The Bowery Electric
May 24, 2019 - New York

ecas is the nom de canción of Brooklyn-via-Madrid artist, Sandy Davis. Through pecas, Davis invites us to dance slowly, even cautiously, as she mixes gentle percussion and breathy vocals into a brand of R&B that is both seductive and sinister. Playing off of the traditional tropes of "baby-making" music, it's characteristically silky and smooth, but it's music to do-the-dirty to with one eye open - where "Let's Get it On" quickly becomes "You Better Run" if listening closely enough. The combination of glittering sounds and alluring vocals is a lethal one. Pecas is a gender-bending femme fatale for a new generation.

Become a Citizen Pruner - Green-Wood Cemetery
May 25, 2019 - Brooklyn

Stewardship and pruning hugely reduce a tree's vulnerability to common urban threats such as pedestrian and vehicular traffic, drought and storms. In New York City, where there is limited funding for tree maintenance but significant need, Citizen Pruners provides a great asset to our urban environment. Join fellow nature lovers and urbanists to become licensed to take care of NYC's street trees. The 12-hour Citizen Pruner Course consists of 5 sessions – 4 in the classroom and 1 field outing. Green-Wood's own neighborhood, Sunset Park, is one of the fastest growing and most diverse neighborhoods in all of New York City. Yet, it also faces serious environmental challenges. Car and truck exhaust from the Gowanus Expressway and industrial emissions from its small manufacturers create higher than average levels of harmful air pollution. Street trees to the rescue! They're nature's miracle workers: they intercept and absorb storm water runoff, provide oxygen, fight climate change, and lower air temperatures.

The small village of Taizé is one of the world's most important sites of Christian pilgrimage. Each year thousands of people journey to Taizé to share in the community's way of life. Prayer and silence are at the heart of the Taizé experience. Alex Pryrodny, director of music at St. John's Episcopal Church in Huntington, New York, has been invited to plan the service and lead the music. Please join us!

Briefly with SEAN DONOVAN, 2018-19 Season Artist - The Bushwick Starr
Through June 08, 2019 - Brooklyn

Sean arrives at the obelisk in Fort Green Park straight from Riis Beach, and under the influence of this beach energy, the discussion we have is intimate, tender. At the obelisk you can get perspective. It's a place for Soul Summit dance parties and contemplating men lost at sea. It's also a great date spot - and Sean and I proceed to accidentally have the perfect date. I mean, not really. But kind of! A sort of artistic date.
