Announcing Shots For Shots

A benefit concert is coming to Brooklyn April 2nd.  A few crazy kids decided to use their powers of persuasion and party planning for good instead of their usual collective misuse of time.  It’s all about IAVI, the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative.  These guys are working on developing a safe and effective AIDS vaccine, one that can be accessed throughout the world.  And we’re hoping to help them out, especially since they have a research and development laboratory right here in Brooklyn.

 

Looks like there will be bands and DJs and booze and artists and photographers and games and prizes and hopefully a tournament of some kind.  I’m thinking Corn Hole will be just the ticket to welcome Spring.  So come one, come all…viagra we’re stopping AIDS here, folks.

A Very Special Thanks to The Trinity Project

The Minister of General Mayhem used his friendly neighborhood prowess to connect with The Trinity Project and secure a venue for Shots For Shots.  The Trinity Project facilitates artist interaction and community participation by combining studio space, show space and volunteer manpower resulting in a Creative Bermuda Triangle.  The Minister and His Faithful Cohorts have traded many, many hours of volunteer work to get our fingers on the delectable show space in the basement of St. Mary’s Church on Leonard Street in East Williamsburg.

 

This lovely space is reminiscent of those Catholic grade school dances some of us used to attend; linoleum floors, green and ivory color scheme, florescent lighting, a full kitchen and bar, but most importantly, a kick-ass stage!  St. Mary blessed us with the perfect venue to host a string of gorgeous local celebrities, musicians and artists alike.  I’m sure we’ll get to booking them soon, but for now I’d just like to imagine roller skating in and out of these pea green pillars…
