Be Our Neighbor @ Mister Rogers



Mister Rogers is possibly the most charming name that a venue can have. Did you know that the majority of Mister Rogers’ sweaters were made by his mother? What a genuine guy.

So, back to the show on Saturday (April 5th) – it’s going to be a pretty (very) good one,  with talented acts such as Nat Osborn Band, Kenya Hall Band, Aabaraki and Victory Gardens  with Marianne Rendon.

Those links are clickable and the musicians behind the screen are  really talented and waiting for you.


The show starts at 8 and will basically cost less than $1 an hour if you show up before 9:00, which is really wonderful, because there’s even more acts on top of all of that really jammin’  music (you’d know if you listened to it). Plus, for the folks who know that accumulating cultural capital is cool, there will be 5 excellent dance acts. Five.

We’ve got Megan Bascom and Dancers (“unmistakable quirkiness. It’s unpredictable, yet highly disciplined”), Emma Schain, Linnea Snyderman, Loudhound Movement Collective (“a collective designed to enhance and promote artistic integrity through investigative movement research, idea exchange, and public performance”) as well as Christina Noel and the Creature (“envelopes viewers visually and aurally in multi-textured environments derived from human connections and encounters”).

For Locals By Locals


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.
