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.

Wednesday night's $500-a-ticket Gala event (the afterparty was cheaper) at Capitale didn't include any surprises (no on-stage collaborations or surprise guests), but it did include performances by Dirty Projectors, Doveman, Nico Muhly, and St. Vincent as advertised, and raise a lot of money for non-profit venue The Kitchen (whose upcoming events include two talent shows curated by Robert Melee).

The honoree, David Byrne, rode his bike to and from the party. More pictures from the event (though none of Chief who play two more NYC shows in June), below...
