As mentioned, David Lynch is bringing his Festival of Disruption to NYC for the first time, presenting it at Brooklyn Steel on May 19 & 20 with live music, discussions, films, art, meditation and more. Tickets, including two-day packages that come with limited edition CDs and posters, are on sale now and proceeds benefit the David Lynch Foundation.

The live music portions include Animal Collective, Flying Lotus (DJ set), and Jon Hopkins, on May 19 and Angel Olsen (solo), Au Revoir Simone (their first live show in four years), Jim James (solo), and Rebekah Del Rio on May 20.

Perhaps even more exciting for Lynch fans, David will be on hand to present some of his rarely-seen short films (and talk about them); Isabella Rossellini will be on hand to talk about Blue Velvet; and Gregory Crewsdon will talk about documentary There But Not There which chronicled his "Beneath the Roses" series.

There's also an installation exhibition version of Brian Eno's album (and generative app) Reflection, as well as exhibitions of Lynch's artwork, the photography of William Eggleston, Sandro Miller and the work of David Oreilly, and more
