GROOVY GROOVY Renick Bell, Kiki Kudo & Color Plus (1090 Wycoff Ave, Brooklyn @ 11 PM)
Renick Bell aka Algorave papi is a live coding beat generator, algorithmic composer, programmer, and teacher. His records on labels listed below sure to make you rethink this whole electronic music shit. Kiki Kudo is a chef, avant garde pop novelist and arts writer who's responsible for putting out one of my favorite records of 2018. Dumb excited to bring her world of nanotech pop and kitchen wave electronic magic to Planet Groovy. Motherfucking Color Plus New York's hottest producer in my very strong opinion. Just peep the record on Paxico mate. Man is one on his own level + been at it since the golden era of Swim Team. Can't reveal any details about DJ Temporar, just prepare yourself for sonic goodness.

Mid century furniture, rugs, antiques, vinyl, collectible cameras, and more are ready and wanting to go home with you. Jewels, handbags, denim, accessories, posters, tees and all the vintage oddities you love to joyfully discover will be here, too.
Between channeling your favorite superstar of a bygone era (be it the outfit, the home, or just the tunes), enjoy a yummy meal from Grand Bazaar's artisanal food court from salty, sweet and savory delights. This rare vintage-only event happens but only a few times yearly.
