Season Launch Party 2013
Curated by AUNTS
Known for throwing DIY performance events in lofts, museums and even once on a boat, AUNTS will take over this year’s Season Launch Party in their signature fashion of overstimulation – multiple performers, overlapping performances and inter-disciplinary work culminate into an all out dance party at the end of the evening. Featuring performances by Justin Cabrillos, Levi Gonzalez, Fantasy Grandma, Stanley Love, Bessie McDonough-Thayer, Jillian Pena, Molly Poerstal, Matt Romein (interactive video), Elizabeth Ward, Emily Wexler and more!
Tickets: $30 in advance | $35 at the door
All tickets include open bar + hors d’oeuvres
