Tentative meeting times are Saturday at 4 PM in front of Toad's Place, and Sunday at noon next to Alchemy. Photo Safaris generally take around one hour, and shooting location suggestions are welcome!

DANCES OF VICE



The Blacksun Festival is happy to announce a partnership with the Dances of Vice festival this February 8-9th. The following is a description of the festival and on-going events:

Dances of Vice invites all modern dandies, decadents, aesthetes, artists, thinkers, and dreamers to join us on February 8th and 9th for the 2008 Dances of Vice Festival in New York City! Day One of the festival will possess our regular 1920-30s edge, while Day Two of the festival will feature a distinctly gothic Victorian flair. In addition to our roster of sensational live entertainment, Dances of Vice will also feature a number of exciting vendors, an art exhibition, and a vintage Polaroid photo booth, with numerous giveaways and prizes to be distributed throughout course of the event. Tickets are available now at http://www.dancesofvice.com.

Since our debut in August 2007, our aim has been to enrich the New York art culture by promoting the music and art we love, and to generate interest and appreciation for the beauty of times forgotten. We are not historical re-constructionists; Dances of Vice seeks to revive the music and performance culture of the past in a modern context, encouraging originality and creativity.

If you can't wait for the festival, join us at one of our monthly events at The Pussycat Lounge! Visit our website for details.
