CLL PHN LCKN 09, put on a not-so-secret cell phone experiment Monday (1/26) at the new 92Y Tribeca venue in... Tribeca. The event, organized by LVHRD, was a group experiment encouraging socializing via text messaging. You might be saying what the hell? This instructional video, below, will help in understanding the events of the night.
Each attendee received a protective Mobiguard white jumpsuit (like something out of the Beastie Boys "Intergalactic" video) with an assigned four digit number and instructions on how to register their bio to their number. Once registered, you could text-message-socialize by texting other people's suit numbers to retrieve their bios. You could also use the system to send messages to other party-goers, all of which were then projected in a scrolling fashion on screens near the bar and stage. Yacht came on sometime around 10:30pm and performed for about 60 minutes.
