  • With support from the New Museum’s Education Department, Elastic City is pleased to announce the launch of Willing Participant.

    All of us are, at some point or another, shaken by tragedies and hardship. It’s time to respond in the best way we can.

    Willing Participant whips up urgent poetic responses to crazy shit that happens.

    On Sunday April 28, from noon–4 p.m., we’ll dissect and unravel the news of the day. What sticks? What stinks? We’ll find what’s most pressing to participants and what we need to say. We’ll craft that message into a poetic performance and, six days later, on Saturday May 4, we’ll perform our response in the public sphere. Think whispers over bullhorns, but let’s feel the weather.

    You’re all invited. Please bring the fire in your belly.

    Location for the inaugural meeting on April 28 at noon is the New Museum Theater, basement of 235 Bowery. The meeting spot for the May 4 response will be collectively decided upon in the April 28 meeting.

    Ringleaders: Todd Shalom, Niegel Smith and Ben Weber.

    Willing Participant is a labor of love and grrrr. An all-volunteer project created by members of non-profit participatory walk organization Elastic City.

things to do iN other cities

  • ADV.TIX :



    Kevin Hedge is one half of the songwriting/production team known as Blaze. They have been recording dance-oriented music for over 24 years and are considered to be pioneers of dance music, in the soulful house genre.

    Blaze ( Kevin Hedge/Josh Milan ) wrote, produced and remixed many # 1 dance hits like Delacy’s “Hideaway” and their own “Breathe”. In 2005 the duo wrote and produced the U.K. House Music Awards song of the year, Billboard NO. #1 dance anthem “Most Precious Love” feat. Barbara Tucker. Following that success they wrote “One Dream” a song that would be performed in front of millions of fans around the world at Super Bowl XLI ! “One Dream” became the title track composition for the Cirque Du Soleil pre-game performance and it was orchestrated by Louie Vega & The Elements Of Life Orchestra. 2007 also brought more hot remixes by Blaze ! Their remix of Beyonce’s “Listen” and Jennifer Hudson’s “Family” from the Academy Award nominated film “Dreamgirls” became anthems in the dance community.

    Kevin became president and co-owner of the venerable West End Records in 2002, where he actively directed the legendary classics catalogue (which include disco anthems like “Heartbeat” by Taana Gardner, “Is It All Over My Face” by Loose Joints and “Hotshot” by Karen Young.) He also built a quite substantial collection of new titles, including underground anthems “Love Will” by Stephanie Cook and “Found Love” by Blaze.

    After years of playing alongside DJ Timmy Regisford at Club Shelter NYC, DJ Kevin Hedge decided to go out on his own. In 2004, as the resident DJ and promoter Kevin embarked on a new nightlife venture called “ROOTSnyc” where he spins every Wednesday with Grammy Award winner DJ Louie Vega. He continues to entertain audiences around the world with his mix of House, Funk, Soul, Hip-Hop and Jazz. Kevin says, “My greatest joy is to add value to the Universe.”

    Currently Kevin is in charge of bringing House Music back to the primetime airways of New York City. He is the DJ, program director and radio personality of “ROOTSNYC LIVE !” w/ Louie Vega, the #1 house music mix show in NYC! The show has 2.6 million dedicated listeners and can be heard on WBLS Fridays from 11 pm til 1 am.

    ***************************************************************Decadent music selections by Dj Primo Preems
    Hosted by In*Tandem Magazine

    Domonique Echeverria is a designer inspired by and fully carrying the flame of utter glamour and decadence—touchstones including Weimar Berlin, (and its most famous theatrical representation!) the feathered and jeweled arch elegance of old Hollywood, and the wildest expanses of disco and glam rock culture all comingle in her exquisite and extravagant creations. A longtime nightlife personality in her native San Francisco and current home of New York, Ms. Echeverria’s glorious mode draws further life from the jungle of drag queens, sex workers, and performers of all stripes with whom she prowls her nights and early mornings, all married to a deep appreciation and understanding of the aesthetics of surrealism. As a creator she is aggressively self-possessed, focused largely on the approach to all body types as potential art material and on the rich transformative and playfully performative aspects of experimental couture. In addition to her regular occupations as a party hostess, model and muse, Domonique’s own work has been enjoying a flowering ascent--she has been tireless in producing her own shows in NYC and has been increasingly tapped as a costumer of rigorous craft and volcanic imagination. Her work stands a bright young hope of chola rock & roll hedonism.
