In May, Vice and Intel announced the Creators Project, an art & music series that would be hosting events in various cities and on its website. The NYC kick off for that will be Saturday, June 26th at Milk Studios and will include performances by Interpol, Mark Ronson, Die Antwoord, The Rapture, Sleigh Bells, Gang Gang Dance, Salem, N.A.S.A., Neon Indian, Lemonade and others, plus a "very special guest." The event is free; RSVP here. How big is the space exactly? They write that "the eight-floor art gallery and performance space will host thousands of people for live concerts, art exhibits, film screenings and panel discussions by leading artists and the next generation of innovators."

It's the first of five events in different cities- the others are slated for London, Sao Paulo, Seoul and a three-day event Beijing.

For Die Antwoord, it will be their first NYC show, making the July gig at Governors Island their second.

For Interpol, it will be the first time we see them with their new lineup (unless they announce something else soon).

Pictures from the Creators Project announcement event, and a flyer and the full lineup of music and visual art (which includes work by Spike Jonze, Nick Zinner, Danny Perez/Animal Collective's ODDSAC and more) are below...

i hear tom yaps is a creator is that true?

Posted by roedood | June 8, 2010 4:26 PM

is this a trick of some sort? are they luring in hipsters to kill them??? too much good free stuff.

Posted by Anonymous | June 8, 2010 4:32 PM

Interpol, The Rapture, Gang Gang Dance?! "The Creators Project" = Failed Buzzbands of the 2000s Project. The crowd will be 100% transplants and aspiring hipster summer interns from midwestern shitholes.

Posted by Anonymous | June 8, 2010 4:34 PM

who cares what year it is. those are pretty decent bands.

If you have nothing nice to say...here's the place for it!

Posted by Anonymous | June 8, 2010 4:42 PM

Well, at least we know which bands are still doing coke. Or at least the ones who still have an outstanding bill with Vice.

"The crowd will be 100% transplants and aspiring hipster summer interns from midwestern shitholes."

100%? Wow, that's a lot. So you think not a single other type of person will be there? I disagree, I think there will be at least 3-4 people, and probably many more, that are not transplant aspiring hipster summer interns from midwestern shitholes. But I guess you're going to have to find a summer internship to find out for yourself, lest you be seen disproving your own bold claim.

these photos lead me to believe that the crowd will be populated by cute girls

I like milk studios, but i prefer soymilk studios even more... But hummus studios is top notch.

this is the same day as the floor reunion show at europa, if i'm not mistaken. gonna be running all over brooklyn.

Sounds like a fun event and you can't argue with the price. But why do they require you to give your birthdate (day/month/year) when RSVPing?

If they want to restrict it to 21+, they can just say so. But, it's a bit freaky to give out personal info like that - and not even have any guarantee that it is kept strictly private. I ain't worried about people knowing how old I am (who cares?); it's identity theft that sucks.

GGD and Sleigh Bells make it worth it...Interpol is a triple MEH

No it wasn't. It is timestamped. That doesn't even make sense.

Who the fuck are you? Its free. 100% transplants? Not all of us were born in BK. If you did and think you're great because of it, congrats

Thanks for posting the photos of idiots. Even free isn't worth it.

Second gallery this week that's just stupid pictures of ugly people.

Posted by Anonymous | June 9, 2010 12:12 AM

This sounds awesome, but why must it be on the same day as the Big Northside Showcases?

Posted by Scott | June 9, 2010 12:17 AM

when should we start lining up to get in?

Posted by Anonymous | June 9, 2010 12:37 AM

If it wasn't during Northside I'd be there for GGD... but it is.

Posted by Anonymous | June 9, 2010 6:13 AM

Wow, that's a lot of pictures of people who aren't even trying to play music.

Posted by J | June 9, 2010 6:43 AM

anyone who goes to northside over this is trying too hard.

Posted by supchief | June 9, 2010 7:21 AM

6:36-- they want your birth date because they don't want anyone over the age of 25.

Don't get your hopes up everyone. This RSVP game is solely for the purpose of generating email addresses they can sell. Vice will respond to you via email saying your RSVP has been confirmed. Then on the day of the show, you will wait in a 2-hour line trying to enter. Meanwhile their cheesey ad agency friends from the Mountain Dew account will be allowed VIP entrance. Have fun!

this sounds sadly too accurate. i recall a free kanye show sponsored by some magazine way back when that ended up being the same clusterfuck.

that keyboardist from neon indian is ridiculously hot

Seems douchey. Northside should be better.

Posted by Anonymous | June 9, 2010 7:39 PM

"anyone who goes to northside over this is trying too hard." Northside has much better showcases that day. Although I would much rather see that girl's ass than any decent band.

Posted by Anonymous | June 17, 2010 12:49 PM

anyone know how many confirmations they are doing?

Posted by Anonymous | June 17, 2010 6:41 PM

I still haven't received a response at all. Boo.

I realize some people will not be able to get into this event, but they're just not rich and privileged enough to hang with us douchetards.

Sincerely,
Mark Fucking Ronson
"creative" person

Posted by Mark Ronson | June 19, 2010 12:35 PM

Cool that they through a free show and all but what a bunch douche-bags. Especially that Adam Green dick, that guy sucks hard. Wasn't it close to 90 out yesterday? So many people wearing jackets. Bunch of tools.

Posted by Conan the Barber | June 27, 2010 11:36 AM

Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie were really good albums. Got them when they came out, still throw them on at times and think they're great. It saddens me when I hear bands from that era when I was a teenager and hear their new stuff and it's so clear how they've lost it, they sound desperate to recapture a sound/magic that they haven't had in 15 years (holy shit).... And then I realize that is not unlike a lot of us.

you dave haters can go fuck yourselves. bonnaroo 2010 was 4 of the best days of my life. the DMB and JayZ headliners at the main stage were two of the best shows I've ever seen, musically and production speaking. 2011 'roo is going to be amazing. Phish headlining?

they also played at a place called Tramps in april '99 losers. with qotsa. where were you? you guys sound pretty angry? go listen to something hip. whatever the fuck you think that is. why does james iha need to be in the band for them to be good? that makes no sense. so the band changed lineups. oh well.
