PS122 – AVANT GARDE ARAMA – June 17th, 2011 – Old coming into the NEW!

I am thinking about the NEW PS122 and remembering the old PS122.

Here is a video of the last Avant-Garde-Arama performance that was presented at that site.

Here is a compilation video I made from photographs and video I shot at the Friday, June 17th AGA. It has the stills from the show embedded in the video of the finale WRECKING BALL! It was a great show. Murray Hill hosted the evening. Very Funny! The following performers were on hand to add pizazz to the night’s festivities.
Tom Murrin (the Alien Comic), Tigger, John Kelly, Lucy Sexton (the Factress), The Dazzle Dancers, Julie Atlas Muz, Hank and Cupcakes. The show finished with a accordion solo by Geo and everyone sang the Ethyl Eichelberger song ‘We Are Women Who Survive”.
In the basement was the Lori E. Seid cafe.
