Out To See Festival

NYC’s Out to See Festival is happening now through April at 192 Front Street at South Street Seaport, featuring music, art and film. The festival is presented by Little Water Radio (full disclosure: I’ve got a show on LWR) and most events are free. This weekend’s events include a performance by No Bra and Neon Music tonight (2/5) at 8 PM and Platinum Vision on Saturday (2/6) at 8 PM. Then on February 10, it’s the monthly edition of Animation Nights NY which presents animated shorts from around the world. Other upcoming events: a screening for Russ Meyer’s classic Beyond the Valley of the Dolls on February 17, and there’s a kids “Intro To Interactive Electronic Circuits” workshop on February 20.

There are also other kids events, workshops, a market every Sunday (noon – 5 PM) and more. More info is at the OTS website, and Out To See’s 2016 schedule is listed below.
