Silent Barn needs help, Todd P taking a break
Old Time Relijun @ Silent Barn, NYC – Oct 31, 2007 (CRED)
Hello friends, lovers, enemies of the Silent Barn,
SILENT BARN needs your help!
As some of you may know, Silent Barn is an all ages performance / art / work / living space in beautiful Ridgewood, Queens. We’ve had a good run so far, hosting shows and events for a wide variety of groups, having extreme fun the whole time, and we’d like to continue that onward and into the unforeseeable future. But here’s the catch: we just found out that we lost our appeal of a suit with ConEd, and are receiving notices daily that we owe them back power bills for the power used by the previous residents of the space, to the tune of almost $7,000 with interest. OUCH. We are reaching out to our community for help and ideas, because if we don’t come up with the money soon, ConEd will send some sort of federal official to shut off the power, effectively ending Silent Barn for good.
So, we are writing to you, dear friends, to ask for help. Have you played here before? Would you want to do it again as a benefit for the house? Have you been here before? Keep on coming! Do you have high powered rich friends who give out handouts to those in need? We want friends like that! And so on, and so forth.
Spaces like the Silent Barn are ultimately a community effort, and while this problem isn’t exactly uncommon, it is still very real. We do our best to host and promote events of the highest caliber, and hopefully we as a community can keep it going. Please get in touch if you have ANY ideas that will help us work this whole mess out. We are down to do almost ANYTHING to keep the space healthy and alive, especially in these cold winter months.
Thank you forever.

ps: if anyone has a cat that needs a home, we’d love to replace our dear departed Noodles, who has moved on to better times (in a cleaner apartment).
Also, Todd P is taking a break…
so I’m takin it a little easy for the next few months – you won’t see a lot of shows from me while I take a substantial break & work on some other projects for awhile.
I’ll still be around to tell you guys about great shows here & there though! [Todd P]
