The Bronx Once Burned; Now The Lower East Side Too?


The Bronx Once Burned; Now The Lower East Side Too?

NEW YORK, N.Y. Wednesday (October 13th, 2010) - For nearly two years tremendous fires have been set monthly on the Bowery and no manner of reputable press has had the guts to report on the occurrences, except for that of Time Out New York (October 2009 Issue 733) last year. It seems, the general fashion is not to cover events that may upset the norm, by rattling the ‘machine’ and loosening its cogs.

On Tuesday October 26th at 10PM yet another ‘bonfire’ will be lit. Freehiphopnow.com presents “A Monthly Bondfire’s 2nd Anniversary Show” with an encore presentation of the very successful, “Future Insomniac”. It’s summertime debut which filled “Santos Party House” from wall to wall, can be simply described as remarkable. A collaborative effort unlike anything New York’s independent underground scene has ever witnessed. "Future Insomniac" will amaze you, as Tah Phrum Duh Bush and Coole High combine the themes of their individual projects for a theatrical concert under the direction of Gus Gauntlet. It’s cast consists some of NYC's best underground talent. (Bisc1, Cypha Blak, Mariella, Rabbi Darkside, Sleepwalkas, SuperKingArmor, Why-G. Music by M-Tri).

Consider this an open invitation to come and participate in a gathering that can only be fathomed if experienced first hand. It is also the celebration of the event host’s “The Bronx Über Villain” day of birth. (Well the idea of it. No one knows when this character was conceived or if he was actually even ‘born’). Co-hosted by the charming and energetic TastyKeish (WBAI 99.5FM’s Rise Up Radio), Bondfire gives you a well balanced night of entertainment including ‘live’ art by resident painter, Marthalicia Matarrita. (Bring a gift)

A Monthly Bondfire’s celebration of anniversary marks a major accomplishment in a city where venues close just as fast as they open. Cultivating a show with a following that’s grown exponentially since it’s inception while continuing to be regarded as the best “Mic Open/Concert Series” in town, is news worthy. If Waka Flocka’s southern flame can be voiced by the villagers, why not as well the sparks of New York City natives that populate the Bondfire.

Door opens at 10:00P.M. Show begins (on time) at 10:30P.M. The Bowery Poetry Club is located at308 Bowery btw Houston & Bleeker.
