SUM UP YOUR LIFE IN THREE PICTURES



(and poof, I'm a wedding photographer)

A friend of mine helped put together this fundraiser happening on Sunday. It has a diverse line-up and takes place in a great open-air location on the Gowanus Canal: The Yard. It's a nice spot with beautiful poplar trees, picnic tables, and a view of the "Gowanus jellyfish" floating by (ie. condoms). They will also be serving local beer, BBQ, and locally grown farm produce. Details below:

STARRY-EYED FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES LINE-UP AND LOCATION FOR BROOKLYN EVENT:
THE BUDOS BAND, MIHO HATORI AND TIM “LOVE” LEE ADDED

On Sunday Sept. 23rd the Starry-Eyed Festival will give New Yorkers another chance to enjoy some great outdoor music and locally grown food at Brooklyn’s coolest new music venue The Yard.

The event will be held from 3-9pm and feature live performances by the dirty funk outfit The Budos Band, the ethereal art-pop songs of ex-Cibo Matto front woman Miho Hatori, as well as Melanie Moser and the Eleventh Hour Band, Bell Orchestre’s Kaveh Nabatian and newcomer folk artist Barrett Lindgren. World renown DJ and Producer Tim “Love” Lee (Tummytouch) and Acid Test DJs SpiritBear and Udagawa will round out the evening with DJ sets.

The Yard, located on the banks of the Gowanus and just a few steps from the F/G trains in Carroll Gardens, will be serving up local beer, BBQ and locally grown farm produce at the festival. More acts to be added in the coming weeks.

Proceeds from the Starry-Eyed Festival will benefit the Star Island Corporation, a Portsmouth, NH -based non-profit organization. The non-profit organization maintains a Victorian-era hotel on the island, which has been a haven for historical figures as diverse as Henry David Thoreau and the pirate Blackbeard.

Recently, the hotel has needed some prohibitively expensive repairs, threatening the island’s future as a family, artist, and intellectual retreat center. More information on Star Island is available here. Pictures and event information at Starry-eyed Festival.
