Matthew Dear at Knitting Factory in 2011 (more by Winnie Cheung)
Matthew Dear

BLACK: a conceptual music experience, an ode to a color that is a lifestyle, a color that defines New York. We will embrace the edge of culture in music and art, while revering its inexhaustible history. The event will feature live musical performances by Matthew Dear, The Virgins, The Rapture DJ's, and Jim-E Stack.

Enjoy custom art installations by Young & Sick and Charlie Nesi, and video projections from Trevor Owsley, Joel Walker, and Jason Naylor. LA lifestyle shop Black Banditz will have a pop-up tatoo shop upstairs in the VIP lounge.

The "conceptual music experience" known as BLACK will go down at chichi LES club Capitale on Feburary 21. It's from the same people who orchestrated the "Full Moon" party that Yacht played down by South Street Seaport last summer. Could be fun? Tickets are on sale now.

What the fuck happened to the Virgins?? They had an album with several pretty decent songs, then... nothing

That full moon party had the lamest mainstream ohio expats crowd, don't hold your breath...
and capitale is not a club and is def not in the LES. Know your town!

Race baiting isn't interesting. Black is more than a skin tone. If you hate racism, don't fuel it with idiotic trolling.

"Am I one heartbeat away from receiving a damaging shock to my life and believing that love was a cost worth a witness and seeing a larger machine?
Fighting is futile but I can’t concede to interior beliefs that control and deplete you dismounting a love which has grown from beneath you an ancient machine."
