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.

Sunday! HDC at The Living Room.

According to the 2012 Cost of Living index, Manhattan is the most expensive urban area in the United States. Thankfully, residents of the greater New York City area can experience professional quality music, dance, and spoken word provided and curated by the Hoover Dam Collective for the low cost of zero dollars and zero cents at the Living Room this Sunday, July 22nd.

That’s right. High quality art for the same price as that advertisment-laden AM newspaper shoved in your face on the subway stairs. I smell an awesome deal.

Who’s performing?

 

Kaylah Bell (Newly minted high-school grad with serious song-writing and performing talent. Adorable.)

Christine Hoberg (Remember this awesome collaboration with Francheska Lopez?)

She and the Sun (HDC’s favorite sibling duo, rapidly gaining a much-earned following lately.)

YOUNGmen (Brooklyn-warehouse-pop-rock-goodness. Get your dance on.)

Amanda Macleod, Lindsey Mandolini, and the Hoover Dam Collective will present some fancy dancing.

Daniel Grjonko (spoken word boy of wonder, also “a cigarette-smoking housecat from New Jersey.”)

 

More Info:

 

Doors at 6pm

Show: 6:15-9pm. “I have work on Monday morning” is no excuse. Even if you stay until the end of the show, you’ll have time to get home, exfoliate your face AND get your pearly 8 hours of restful peace.

CASH BAR.
