After winning a bid for a 20 year, rent-free lease in downtown Brooklyn, ISSUE Project Room celebrated its victory last night with a benefit at Santos’ Party House in Chinatown. A crowd of electronic music connoisseurs took in the sounds of David Linton, Alex Waterman, Charles Cohen, Fair Use Trio, Moby plus many others. The evening was hosted by all-round genius artist and avant-garde pioneer, Tony Conrad.
Benefit for ISSUE Project Room
Since 2003 Project Room has provided a leading-edge performance art space dedicated to experimental music, filmmaking, reading, and sound installation. Currently located at The Can Factory in Gowanus, it will soon take over a stunning 4800 square foot landmark theatre at 110 Livingston Street.

ISSUE will need about six-hundred thousand dollars in order for the new locale to reach full potential. Donations will go towards architectural renovation and construction. As well as to sound-proofing, system installation, lighting, heating, ventilation, etc. But most of all, donations will help continue the Project Room’s dedication to innovation.

After two dubious elections the people have finally been heard. The votes were counted and the United States of America elected Barack Obama its 44th President.
It’s Election Day in the United States and by now everyone who is anyone knows the deal. Barely Brooklyn respects the right of choice. However, we urge you to vote for Barack Obama.
