Listening Club with BHQFU
Come party away your three-day Fourth of July hangover with BHQFU and Standard Sounds in the Penthouse of The Standard East Village. Over sweeping sunset views of the city from the Penthouse patio, catch four exciting young artists who wield sound and music in mind-bending ways.
DJ George Costanza (Extreme Animals) produces mixtapes for your guiltiest pleasures. Jaimie Warren's bizarre and hilarious performance work looks like a John Waters-directed episode of Pee Wee's Playhouse. Benjamin Santiago is a lightning rod musician and performer channeling an evangelical preacher on LSD. Yanyi Luo's experimental poetry flows effortlessly between sonic composition and spoken word.
