Gabriel Gray of Datura

A note from Gabriel Gray:  So as some of you may know, I play
guitar.  I’ll say that a little bit more appropriately… what I DO, is
play guitar, and my hope is that when you hear me, you will heartily
agree that this is What Gabriel Stranahan Does!  I’m gonna be playing
some old songs and some new songs, some with vocals and some straight
instrumental, some blues, some folk, some songs that, to me, are too
‘in between’ for me to properly say.  You’ve heard me with Datura. Some
of you have heard me with the Strangers on the Footpath. This will
actually be the first time in history for me to play a show on my own,
just my voice and my six strings, so if I don’t see some friendly faces
there I will get very anxious and I might puke on stage and end up
going home with a laundry bill where I could’ve gone home with a
smile.  So, just fucking be there, OK?!? It’s all that I ask in the
whole world, on that particular day, anyway : )  This is a free show!!
I would encourage some of you to give a donation, because if you don’t,
they might get grumpy and start bothering people about money. So throw
an old dog a bone, even if that bone is just a buck or two!  Or don’t,
it is no skin off of my ass.  Or, even better, just give all of your
money directly to me! I’ll put it to good use, pinky promise!  Also I
feel very inclined to say, a friend of mine by the name of Olivia will
be performing solo at Goodbye Blue Monday this same day at around 5pm!
I would love if some of you would come with me to see her play and then
you can follow me straight to the Yippie Cafe. You’ll catch two shows
in one evenin. Good plan, ya? Ya!  I love you all and I’ll see ya there.

The Electronic Snowball (Part Deux)

In the midst of a global stock market crash, a historic presidential
election, and arguably the worst economic decline of our lifetimes; we
have the music. Ladies and Gents, Fortune5Fifty would like to present
The Electronic Snowball (part deux) on December 26th at Baltimore’s
Belvedere.  For those of you who were able to attend the first annual
Snowball you know what’s up…but for those of you who missed out you are
in for a treat. The Electronic Snowball is a ‘dress to impress’ charity
ball dedicated to music, art, and friends. 3 Stages of music, live

Baltimore/Philadelphia based nonprofit dedicated to philanthropic
endeavors through music. Their cause is a worthy and one that I hold
dear my heart. We often find it hard to open our wallets for others,

and throwing an amazing party for such a worthy cause is painless and
quite frankly is fun.  Doors and music for this event will start at
8:00pm and continue till 2:00am. We’ll have a host of special events

Chaos Brigade

The concept is none other than having a replica of the Carnival of
Venice, a beautiful parade that dates back as far as the 1200’s. In
this parade, the participants are fully disguised, the costumes are up
to the costume wearer, the only requirement is the Mask, so typical of
this event. What we would to is show up in full venetian regalia in St.
Marks (venice carnival begins in St. Mark’s Square) and spread out
through the downtown area around Little Italy, then the entire ‘parade’
itself can reconvene three evenings for the weekend and stop at things,
like rocky horror, personality crisis, performances, etc. The dates
would be around the same as the carnival in Venice and it would last
through out the weekend.  This Antician Event is brought to you by
Questionable Antics

== Transmutation ==

Presented by Winkel & Baltick.  They never dissapoint.  21+

The Story: It was the end of the Aughts. Winkel & Balktick
meditated upon the last decade’s irrational exuberance and its booms,
busts, bursts and bubbles. While the present situation seemed dire,
they knew that with the right experiment, they could transform the
debut of the Tens from a bleak lump of coal into a brilliant Golden
Age.  They returned to their laboratory in Brooklyn, determined to
concoct the perfect panacea for ringing in the new decade. On Thursday,
December 31st, 2009, prepare yourself for a grand demonstration of
their alchemy.  Join them as they transmute a dusty old warehouse into
a clandestine celebration laboratory. Participate in the boldest
experiments in dancing, DJs, interactive art installations, lounging,
activities, games, elixirs, cuisine and merrymaking.  The laboratory,
The Philosopher’s Stone, is a chamber of the most majestic proportions.
It sits perched upon the East River on the shores of Sunset Park,
Brooklyn. It lies within the Industry City, a historic terminal complex
that was once the largest integrated manufacturing, storage, shipping
and transportation facility in the world.  The Music:  Elemental audio
DJs exhibiting the finest in house, techno, breaks & dubstep…(in
order of appearance) Reza fans the flames to get the dancefloor inferno
started; friar tuck rings in the new year with a bass explosion; doug
singer throws more bubbling beats into the cauldron; steve b conjures a
bone-shaking dubstep travelogue; david last wobbles us into 2010’s
first sunrise; delirious downtempo and ambient labscapes by… (In no
particular order); autophage + prototype, creepy hugs, futureben &
hobotrail.  What to do if you want to attend:  To receive the secret
warehouse location in the days leading up to New Year’s Eve, please
RSVP here or purchase advance tickets.  In the Summer of 2009, Winkel
& Balktick docked their pleasurecraft at a long-neglected pier just
below Red Hook and found themselves in the midst of a sprawling
industrial estate. They quickly realized that it was the perfect home
for their grand bacchanals.  The laboratory, The Philosopher’s Stone,
is a chamber of the most majestic proportions. Its 26,000 square feet
are divided into two vast workshops. It sits perched upon the East
River on the shores of Sunset Park, Brooklyn within the Industry City
complex. The N, R, D and M trains at 36th St are one avenue and two
blocks from the building’s entrance.  Industry City is a historic
complex of massive warehouse and factory buildings, piers and endless
rail lines that was once the largest industrial park in the world.
Between 1892 and 1925, building after building was constructed until
the terminal spanned more than 20 blocks, covering 200 acres and
featuring 263,740 window panes. you must by tickets in advance
