Brooklyn Masonic Temple: Danger Party This Friday 04.17.09 - Drew

It's an old-school underground party brought to you by the Danger List (part of Complacent Nation), which collaborates with art and political collectives to create everything from politically-charged artistic parades to parties.

The party's messages are generally: "Forget about the bad times and consumerism, let's just unite to party." In this one, if you arrive early/dress as a banker, you are eligible for a "stimulus package."

This was the party that paid you back with a half dozen dj's—from Dirty gospel, to brilliant house, to dark techno.

Featuring: King Britt, Justin Carter, Twilight Tone, Reverend Vince,
Derek Plaslaiko, Zemi 17, David Last & Yusuke Yamamoto, and more.

Plus, fire/ice and end-of-the-world performances by: Reverend Billy, The Lady Circus, Josh Kalin, Chika Imagima, Jessi Klien and more...

Wild acts of abandon and low-down dirty bands led up to a late-night surprise that stimulated even the brokest.

The best corporate dressed won the ultimate Bailout Package:
A year’s supply of alcohol was awarded to the "Baddest Banker.”
Attendees dressed/acted the part: naughty, clever, and notoriously nihilistic.

All this was nestled within the cavernous rooms and secret niches of the Brooklyn Masonic Temple, a historic fortress of hidden passageways and lost-world charm.
