Today at Mellville House Bookstore in Dumbo. It was interesting to hear about visual maps from a more artistic and subversive perspective that I think about them every day. Also spotted, at least one Built By Wendy dress and not less than 10 men in specs with facial hair.
The ever-creative Melville House bookshop is presenting another 10-minute lecture today at 1:15pm on Radical Cartography. As a map enthusiast, you know I’ll be there. Speaking today are the editors of An Atlas of Radical Cartography. 145 Plymouth Street, Dumbo, BK
Brooklynbased.net-sponsored event in the South Slope at Sidecar. Tonight is a Brooklyn cocktail event at a new-ish bar on 5th Ave in the South Slope. I’m thinking it would be fun to meet other Brooklyn people, although it’s a bit far from my Brooklyn. There’s something so comforting and classy about a traditional cocktail, especially at a bar called Sidecar. Cute. There’s said to be good food and a dj.
Crystal Castles at the Mercury Lounge. This show is sold out but if you are lucky, you can buy a scalped ticket or make a buddy on Craigslist…My very music-savvy friend Grace named this band one of the top three she saw at SXSW this year in Austin. This boy-girl duo is about to embark on a UK tour. Catch them before they jump the pond!
