Join us for a conversation about Naturally Occurring Music Communities and why they matter(ed) in New York City, with author and NYC music tour guide Jesse Rifkin, Douglas Sherman (Musical Host, The Loft), Julie “DJ Shakey” Covello (Warper Party, Shakey’s Record Fair), and Federico Ausbury (Pinc Louds). Followed by a live set by Pinc Louds.
There will be giveaways, stories and discussion about past and present underground music scenes. The role of these kinds of music communities in the birth of world-changing music genres such as Hip Hop, Punk, Disco, Jazz, Doo Wop, House and many others is undeniable. In their early forms, many of these small outsider music communities were actively despised and vilified by the mainstream press, radio, and society at large. How are these scenes developing in present-day New York, with globalized social media, and what, if any, realizations have come up in the post-pandemic world?
If you haven’t experienced the inspired joy of Pinc Louds’ infectious songs, come laugh, sing, dance and just be free to be yourself while finding out what you’ve been missing. If you’re already a convert come support this Drom takeover! Costumes and characters welcome!
