#trashDAY: WHAT UP FAM! 3-5pm
Sixty-six percent of households in 2012 were family households, down from 81 percent in 1970. And the proportion of one-person households increased by 10 percentage points, from 17 percent to 27 percent, during that same time period, thereby proving that people lie on the census. With all these Sons, Dawtas, Muvas, Aunt Vivs, and Uncle Snoops, not to mention Mother Goose, Mother Nature, Aunt Jemima, Uncle Ben, Uncle Sam and Father Time - the whole world is one big happy dysfunctional family.
So, as Thankstaking approaches, play cousins Doe Derek and k(Rob) invite you to the ultimate sonic family reunion. Breaking out cold cuts that magnetize the drunkest of uncles to the dance floor, for that old-man-two-step. Pimps by blood or re-lay-shun, whatever your notion of family, we can agree that these are the folks capable of side eyeing you to submission for some you-ought-to-know-better transgression, or slapping the mess out of any outsider that deigns to call you out on the same offense.
DJ Sabine Blaizin 5-6pm
Sabine Blaizin (aka Oyasound) revels in the pleasures of music from the African diaspora that is rooted in grassroots dance culture. She has taken her sound around the U.S., Haiti, and as far as Dakar, and she speaks on the power and spirituality in the arts for the renowned Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute. She is not only a participant but an organizer of cultural events under the project Lakay Se Lakay: Home Is Home, a Haitian electronic artists' conversation series, and the No Passport party (NYC edition) produced in conjunction with Haiti Cultural Exchange’s 1st NYC Haitian Arts & Culture festival Selebrayson! Tune in for an African diasporic aural journey with Haitian roots, Afrohouse, Afrotech, and more.
Yowana Sari 6:30pm
In Java and Bali, gamelan music is as popular today as it was a thousand years ago. It is the musical background to every social and cultural gathering, from religious rituals to mainstream radio broadcasts. At the core of gamelan culture is the belief that music is meant to evolve and adapt its repertoire. Yowana Sari does just that, performing traditional and not such traditional pieces on gongs, metallophones, drums and other instruments crafted by Pande Sukarta in Bali.
Breakdown Brass 8pm
This Brooklyn Brass band plays Dirty Funk, Classic Hip-Hop & other groove-based tunes. Breakdown are made up of young veterans of Brooklyn’s soul and funk scene — its members tour and record with Antibalas, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Charles Bradley, Lee Fields, Slavic Soul Party & many others. “The Horseman”, the group’s debut single, was recorded at Dunham Studios by Thomas Brenneck (Amy Winehouse, Sharon Jones, Budos Band, Jay-Z, etc.) and has received acclaim from NPR, BBC and many more.
