PARTY at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple: This Friday

The Brooklyn Bailout @ The Brooklyn Masonic Temple, This Friday, April 17th

As the warming spring wakes our sleepy city, it's time to rise up and taste the whiskey all over again. THIS Friday, April 17th, 3rd Ward, TheDanger, MeanRed Productions and Artists Wanted invite you to a classic celebration of class-warfare (made fun!)...The Brooklyn Bailout @ The Brooklyn Masonic Temple.

Everyone else seems to be getting their bailout, now it's time for you to get yours! This is the party that pays you back with a half dozen DJs, wild acts of abandon and low-dow dirty bands leading up to a late-night surprise that will stimulate even the brokest amongst you.

Featuring: Dirty gospel, to brilliant house to dark techno from: King Britt, Mobroder / Spankrock, Michna, 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...

The best amongst you will win the ultimate Bailout Package: a years supply of alcohol will be awarded to the "Baddest Banker". Think naughty, clever or notoriously nihilist and dress/act the part.

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

Friday, April 17th
Brooklyn Masonic Temple: 317 Clermont Street, Fort Greene Brooklyn

DESIGN a Miniature Golf Hole!



The Putting Lot will be a nine-hole miniature golf course occupying a vacant lot in Brooklyn for the summer of 2009. The site will include the course, a snack-shack, and public seating. Recreation and fun will be the first priority, but visitors will also be able to experience putt putt as a means for embodying, moving through, and actively engaging with art and ideas of urban sustainability.


* Participants will design a miniature golf hole that explores the concept of urban sustainability.
* Participants will be given an area of approximately 200 ft2 and may choose the dimensions of their footprint.
* Stipends of up to $500 will be available for materials. The Putting Lot encourages participants to incorporate the theme of urban sustainability in their construction methods by re-appropriating used and reclaimed materials.
* Participants will construct and install their design. Some additional labor will be available.
* The mini-golf holes must be able to endure outdoor exposure for the duration of the summer.


Participants must submit:
* A conceptual statement of no more the 500 words in length.
* Drawings that describe the design.
* samples of previous work.
* A CV or resume for each member of a team.


Submissions must be sent by 6pm on Monday, April 27th. Submissions received after this date will not be considered. Installation will take place during the month of May.


Complete submissions guidelines.
Submissions can be emailed to:

CALLING all Musicians 

3rd Ward Invites You to Make Music New York!

Last year, on the summer solstice, Make Music New York organized 875 free outdoor concerts in an incredible array of genres and locations. Thousands of musicians -- from NYC Opera artists to underground MC's, Tuvan throat singers to 8-bit musicians -- entertained New Yorkers on sidewalks, streets, parks, gardens, and even cemeteries throughout all five boroughs of NYC.

"The day literally exploded with live music" (Spin Magazine) in "the largest music event ever to grace Gotham" (Metro New York). This year, it's going to be even bigger and better. As one of MMNY's presenting partners this year, 3rd Ward invites all of our musician friends to join us out on the streets!

Time Out New York magazine has created a website to match musicians with locations for the Sunday, June 21st festival. Now anyone can find a space for their music... or music for their space. Sign up today, and MMNY will put you in touch with other musicians and locations, coordinate your concert with others in the neighborhood, secure all necessary permits, and promote your event with free posters, an interactive website, and media partners Time Out NY, Metro NY, Filter Magazine, and WNYC.

To get started, just go to

There is no charge to take part -- everything is completely free.

Last year's festival drew tens of thousands of listeners and international media coverage. Don't miss out on this opportunity to connect with New Yorkers from all walks of life.

All concert arrangements must be finalized by April 24th. For more information, visit
