Tonight, a very cool event takes place at The Boiler in Williamsburg, NY:
THE GREATEST FILMS YOU NEVER SAW with DEWANATRON
An evening of vintage silent 16mm entertainment curated by Mark Newgarden Comedies, Cartoons, Vaudeville acts, Scientific curiosities, Erotic dances, Strange people’s home movies, Something for everybody–even YOU! Live musical accompaniment by Dewanatron (Leon Dewan and Brian Dewan) and “honored guest instrumentalists,” David Scher, among others.
We attended a similar event a few years ago and it was an unforgettable evening of strangeness and mirth. Newgarden’s collection of film ephemera is world famous, and Dewanatron is almost like a living. breathing Raymond Scott. It’s like YouTube is happening right in front of you. Tear yourself away from Twitter and experience LIFE. Although, I will probably Twtter about it while it’s in progress. The show begins at 9 pm.
The Boiler is located at 191 North 14th St. in Brooklyn.
Also tonight: Chris Claremont and Matthew K. Manning discuss Wolverine with Peter Sanderson at MoCCA.
