FalalalaLOFT – Saturday December 14th!

Deck the Loft with boughs of Holly! 

FALALALA LOFT LOFT LOFT LOFT LOFT. 

 Due to unfortunate circumstances (which mostly involve underage hipsters partying irresponsibly), we are NO LONGER able to have our wonderful holiday Hoover Dam Show at the glorious LOFT on South 5th St. 

However, we have found a replacement space, thanks to our helpful friends at Mr. Rogers in Crown Heights (Falalalala Old-Warehouse-turned-into-cafe-turned-into-awesome-art-gallery-and-venue just didn’t have the right ring, so we kept the old name.) We’ve done shows here before, and it always turns into a good party. Portland Santa might even show up.

Hipster Santa is going.

The show will be a sparkling toast to the holidays, with collaborative performances and immersive experiences galore.

There will be a CASH BAR, FREE WINE AND SNACKS FROM 6-7, and an ART GALLERY.

231 Rogers Ave – Brooklyn NY.

For Locals By Locals

HDC_FLBL09

If you’ve been paying attention to the Hoover Dam Collective on Facebook recently, you may have noticed a multitude of posts regarding a summer show series called For Locals, By Locals, in collaboration with ECS.

What is this?

Well, the Hoover Dam Collective has been asked to curate this series of shows, pulling from our vast network of past collaborators while getting a chance to showcase new performers. The Event Connection Source, created by Avi Werde, is not only providing access to a large space, they set up the show entirely for us! Its a refreshing opportunity for The Hoover Dam Collective to get in touch with the artists again. We aren’t so busy running around that we can’t stop to listen and enjoy the talented performers that collaborate with us. It’s a good chance for our audience to come catch up with the administrators of the Hoover Dam, because we actually have a free moment to chat!

The events are 21+, and they feature clothing from Franklin Ave’s favorite vintage store, Cool Pony. ECS is also doing awesome feature articles on our artists, written by Alexandra Coffey. Here’s a great one about trumpet player Wayne Tucker.

The series is every Wednesday at 8pm at Mr. Rogers. (231 Rogers Ave. Brooklyn) Check out the facebook page for the series here.

LOFT in SPACE Event Gallery

Thanks to everyone that came out to the Loft in Space show on March 2nd! Special thanks to our performers, to David Kiss and Travis Tacon for running sound, and to Neha Sha for the space. We also couldn’t have done this without HDC collaborator Nat Osborn. Thanks to everyone who worked the bar and … Continue reading

A Cricket in Traffic

“London: Crickets in urban areas have changed their mating calls to cope with the traffic noise, scientists say. Researchers suggest that high levels of background noise may affect the crickets’ mating process, as the insects are forced to increase the volume of the low-frequency sections of their call. “

Mmm. Dirty. Hopefully we wont be affecting the mating processes of any creatures with the show on January 19th, unless the outcome is positive, of course.

A Cricket in Traffic

This show will be saturated with the spoken word, curated in part by HDC collaborator Daniel Grjonko. We’ll be crashing another friend’s loft for this not so little soiree, and I’ll take a moment to thank him especially: Muchas Gracias Ian Campbell!
