Halloween Haunted Hop 2019

By |

Celebrate another Night Of The Vampire at the 14th edition of the world’s best Halloween party! Mark your calendars! Thursday, October 31 at the 14th edition of Jonathan Toubin / New York Night Train Haunted Hop Halloween Spooktacular at Knockdown Center!

This NYC Halloween tradition this year will feature live performances by an unlikely combination of rock’n’roll legends:

– THE MAKE-UP (Washington, DC) Thee explosive sound verite is back and better than ever! Ian Svenonius, James Canty, Michelle Mae, and Mark Cisneros! Together again for a rare appearance! This is gospel ye ye legends’ first NYC gig since 2000 revelers had their minds blown at South Street Seaport more than two years ago! They live by night!

– QUINTRON & MISS PUSSYCAT (New Orleans, LA) This world-famous duo remains one of the most consistently wild and unique live experiences in contemporary music/art! Featuring Drum Buddy/Weather Warlock inventor/Hammond B-3 wiz Quintron and the puppeteer/fine artiste who brought her art form back into rock’n’roll counterculture! Expect both the puppet show and a wild dance party set!

– PROTEX (Belfast, Ireland) Maybe the best 1970s punk band on the live circuit at this point? The good vibrations of Protex go far beyond their canonical 1978 smash “Don’t Ring Me Up” and you will hear everything from o.g. essentials and to their current killer dillers! A band we don’t see every day and definitely not to be missed!

– THREE BRAINED ROBOT (New Orleans, LA) The main stage entertainment kicks off with the NYC debut of one of the Crescent City’s most compelling live experiences, the multi-media/performance/music/madness of this North Carolina transplant that’s taken the Big Easy by storm! First-ever NYC appearance!

followed by dancing with

– the witchy wax of JONATHAN TOUBIN and his NY NIGHT TRAIN MUMMY DANCERS accompanied by SPENCER BEWLEY visuals!

and

– the 1AM COSTUME CONTEST

Plus over a dozen more bands and plenty of DJs to be announced plus the usual labyrinth of cob-webbed rooms chock full o’live music, dancing, horror cinema, performance, art, food, drinks, and more! Also get excited for new rooms and added diversions this year! Once again we’re upping the ante on what is already the best NY Night Train Party ever!

YJC Queer Lunar New Year Party

By |

Knockdown Center hosts the Yellow Jackets Collective’s 3rd Queer Lunar New Year Party, PIG: Year of Abundance, a party to celebrate joy and community for queer diasporic people of color.

In 2017, the year of the Rooster, YJC threw our very first queer lunar new year party. We were forged in fire, giving shape to our chosen family in the making and unmaking of things. This last year, 2018, was the year of the earth dog; when what remained from the devastation was nurtured. It was a year of grounding and healing, where people built anew and rooted in what had survived. Now it’s the year of the pig, and for Yellow Jackets, it will be a year of abundance. For us this year is about warm, generous love. It is about believing in the strength of our collective dreams, and scheming with our communities to manifest prosperity and joy. It is a year of reaping what you sow.

The party is meant to center queer people of color. There will be a slew of QTPOC DJs and performers as well as a night market with vendors selling zines, art, and other treats. Most of these performers and vendors are community that we’ve built in the last 3 years collaborating in NYC, and this party is meant as a celebration of our love, commitment and gratitude we have for our chosen families.

There will be NO TOLERANCE for anti-blackness, appropriative garb, harassment, anything nonconsensual. We are asking everyone to be financially transparent, as no POC folks will be turned away. We will have clear community guidelines in the space that we ask everyone to follow.

For context, the Lunar New Year is the first day of a calendar year that cycles with the moon. Hindu, Bengali, Buddhist, Islamic and traditional East Asian calendars are based on this system, and many of us in the U.S. who have ancestors from these ‘othered’ spaces still live and celebrate by it. The new year is a time of family reunion and we want to reinterpret this tradition by celebrating with our chosen families and our queer diasporic families.

Set List: Ushamami, DJ Ushka, Landline Sanrio Service, Br0nze_G0dd3ss, and Oscar Nñ [JUST ADDED]

Hosts: Discwoman, BUFU, BARS Collective, Shama Rahman, Alice Sparkly Kat, Ada Wrong, Yung Nihilist, Poppy and Yin of Mercy Mistress, Neon Christina (RAGGA NYC), China Residencies, Papi Juice, KT + Emilio [JUST ADDED], and Wing on Wo & Co [JUST ADDED]

YELLOW JACKETS COLLECTIVE YJC is chosen family of yellow queers collaborating towards radical futures.
