plain and simple, Flux Factory – the non-profit doing innovations in things I’ve long been associated with during my NYC tenure – is coming to an end. The building we’ve occupied for the past six years and the space I’ve lived in for over three is being claimed by the city’s transportation network, the MTA, via eminent domain, to make way for the East Side Access Project.

That’s the major reason I haven’t been posting as proficiently as I used to, as I’ve been busy packing up and preparing to depart the city for two months while I re-align my life and my priorities.

But the most-pressing priority really is this Thursday, two days from now. Flux Factory will be hosting our last-ever party at the current 38-38 43rd Street space in Long Island City. The party will be a performance-blowout, featuring more than five-dozen acts, performers, bands, DJs, happenings, stages, presentations, screenings, talks, poetry slams, etc. It’s chock frickin’ full. The night will breakdown something like so:

Potluck begins at 6pm.
DJs and party begins at 8pm.
Performers begin at 10pm and run until 2-3am.
Party keeps going until 4-6am.
Then we sweep and clean up and the following morning hand the keys over to the Man. seriously.

The evening will include the following performers:

Abigail Ohlheiser presents “Come Get Washed in the Blood”
A drag king and a puppet show
Andy Gilliss
Bright Mares
Brooke McGowen’s “Action for Iraq”
