August 14th – Woods, Ducktails and Dungen at The Bell House in Brooklyn, NY

Oh my. Brooklyn’s night sky will be shimmering tomorrow from the combined fuzzy yellow and peach-colored summer vibes being sent out by Woods, Ducktails and Dungen playing at The Bell House in Gowanus. You’d better cancel this weekend’s beach vacation/camping trip/outdoor frolicking and high-tail it over there before you miss it!

Friday, August 14th – 8PM
The Bell House
149 7th Street / Brooklyn, NY 11215
$15 (Bring an Animal Collective ticket stub and get in for $10!)

April 25th – Reminder: Trinie Dalton's presentation of MIRROR/RROROH at The Observatory in Brooklyn, NY


Longtime Arthur contributor Trinie Dalton sez:

“I’m giving a little slide talk about the Mirror Horror section in MYTHTYM. Horror films, sexy ladies, mirrors in myth. Should go about 30 minutes, then a cup of wine and hello. Wine-soaked signing to follow event.”

MYTHTYM is a collection of zines that Trinie has produced through the years:

“…I deliberately include not only established artists and writers but also young people who are relatively unknown in their field. The idea of introducing and contextualizing artists by hanging their art on the same wall is a fundamental one in the art world. To me, my zines are literary/art/music history anthologies, following the group-show or salon style. They’re like parties on paper, and I want to be an exquisite host.”

Admission: Free.

When: Saturday, April 25th, 7pm

Where: Observatory (same building as Proteus Gowanus, Cabinet Magazine, &
Morbid Anatomy Library). 543 Union Street (at Nevins), Brooklyn, NY 11215

Subway: R/M to Union Street or F/G to Carroll St.


Copies of MYTHTYM will be available for $25 cash.
