Summerscreen, the L's free outdoor summer film series in McCarren Park (thanks to sponsors EPIX, Verizon Fios and IFC), began this Wednesday with Friday. And you know this, maaan! But if you didn't, in fact, know this, here are some photos of the people who came to see Ice Cube and Chris Tucker smoke chronic; listen to Tecla play before the show, and eat pizza, hot dogs and beer from our local vendors.
Summerscreen continues for the next five Wednesdays: gates after work, movies at dusk.
Our annual free movie series SummerScreen presented as part of the EPIX Movie Free-For-All series starts tonight, and we're kicking things off with Ice Cube and Chris Tucker's tale of true, brotherly love, Friday. Come sit with us, enjoy a snack from Pizza Moto, V-Spot, Bark Hot Dogs, and Coolhaus, drink a beer from Six Point, and grab a free bag of Pop Chips and stop by the Red Bull tent for a sample or five.
I don't post much anymore, but I feel it's very important that I wish all my fellow Canadians in New York City a very Happy Canada Day/NHL Free Agency Day. I hope you're not stuck in traffic, or the office, or in line at the beer store. Obviously, here's Joni Mitchell:
With four days of music, film, art and ideas panels, as well as over 250 showcasing artists, there is a lot to see/hear/drink at this year's Northside Festival. That's why we're excited to announce that for the 2011 Northside Festival, our mobile partner Livetapp has created a special festival guide within the Livetapp app to help fans make the most of the exciting weekend.
Festival attendees can use the app to manage their festival experience, find out about special events, learn more about the participating artists, and check in at all Northside Festival events. Some festival sponsors, venues and artists are using the Livetapp app to offer exclusive promotions & rewards to festival attendees who use the app.
Not since our last Audiophile have we experienced such great fashions, cocktails, and incredible music. The night began like it always does; free booze and the application of lots of neon lipstick, and continued with performances from PHONY PPL and Theophilus London. It was awesome, and the brave soul John Rogers took photos. Check 'em out, and be a fan of Audiophile on Facebook to get updates and more info.
Last week, the rain stopped, the temperature rose, and we all gathered on the rooftop terrace of Bumble & Bumble to celebrate up and coming artists from SculptureCenter. Blue Marble Ice Cream and Bite Size Kitchen provided the snacks, Chelsea Brewing provided the beer, and the people of Bumble & Bumble provided the much needed hair consultations. Check out the photos here.
The "L" in our publication name could stand for a lot of things; love, lust, loneliness, lomo tacos. But for one night, we rented out our letter to the ladies over at The Real L Word Season 2, and threw them a huge party to show them what our space in the alphabet is made of. CREEP and DJ Rehka were there, along with gallons and gallons of red wine. Also, everyone was beautiful. Don't believe us? Well, we'd never use our letter to be Liars.
The Real L Word Party
Last week we celebrated the final round of our annual (drunk) fiction-reading series, Literary Upstart sponsored by New School and Harper Perennial. There, we heard stories, drank beers, and no one fell in the water of Galapagos Art Space (at least not during the readings). Check out photos below, and follow @thelmagazine for updates on when next year's deadline is.
