{R}ake is a performance series of alternative and collaborative electro-acoustic music and video. Performances range from pure
improvisation to more structured pieces, with video-artists and musicians working together in exploratory ways.

Monkey Town is closing on January 24. Their curatorial mission and immersive 4-wall video setup made Monkey Town an important advocate of video in New York City, and it’s really sad seeing it succumb to the real-estate BS that’s doomed many other important alternative venues. We’re happy being part of the final month and having a chance to say goodbye to the space.

Monkey Town serves dinner during the show, so come hungry. Seating is limited — It’s a good idea to make reservations on their website.
