    Too bad it is not possible to mount money making cultural events in the Tobacco Warehouse without spending millions to enclose it.

    Thanks so much for this great video. I hope it was OK to link to it.

  • Judy

    It IS possible to mount both FREE and money making events there without enclosing it!

  • Karl Junkersfeld

    Just to show the quality of the acts they are bringing to Brooklyn, here is a professional video by the BBC with Excelencia performing:

    Wow, KJ, that must have been a blast. My hips are aching just looking at your vid. And major props to M…she was working it.

  • AEB

    Excellent! We must all dance, dance, dance! And then dance some more. Particularly on the day the world ends!

    I agree with Judy many great events can be presented that
    would be self sustaining.

    I suggest a thumping, but traditional Rockabilly show with
    poodle shirts and Blue Suede Shoes.

    Poodle shirts? I remember alligator shirts being the rage for a while, but I missed out on that one.

  • Jeffrey j Smith

    Im sorry I meant poodle SKIRTS…for the girls.

    Hey -remember cruser skirts and Bubble skirts (er, for cars)
    Remember Custon cars? Contenental Kits, lake pipes, louvered hoods? Remember Lowering blocks? Flame paint jobs, candy, pearl, or…metalflake paint jobs? Remember scalloping? Pin
    striping? Remember chopped tops? Channeling? Sectioning?

    We went from drop dead gorgeous rocket ships to…..one world
    ugly jelly beans.

    No wonder people are showing up at tea partys very “ready
    for anything”

    Rockabilly! LOL… I think we’re at the wrong latitude for that, daddy’o… Its the Brooklyn Bridge Park not a trailer park.

  • nabeguy

    Eddy, as long as Robert Gordon is still out there, rockabilly lives on.
