PS122 SEASON LAUNCH PARTY 2014

Kicking off the 2014/15 Season, we’re returning to Gawker Media’s Rooftop in Nolita for a dance-infused, musically raucous evening with choreographer/musician Steven Reker curating the night. Having tenderly straddled the worlds of contemporary dance and indie rock for the last few years, Steven just released a new album with his band People Get Ready whose members along with other special guests will be making cameos throughout the evening. Join PS122 staff, board and artists in toasting the year to come!

Tickets: $30 in advance | $35 at the door All tickets include open bar + hors d’oeuvres
 
Special Thanks to our Season Launch Committee Members: Enrico Ciotti, Seth Hamlin and Maedhbh Mc Cullagh
 
Food generously provided by Vbar, beer lovingly provided by Brooklyn Brewery with tequila tastings from Casamigos.
