If you haven’t made plans yet for tonight here are two events worth considering…

NYC’s 8th Annual Juggling Festival hits Pratt this weekend; check out the show spectacular tonight or head over there tomorrow for juggling workshops and games!

Juggling Festival

You may remember me telling you about Gypsy-Bhangra-Balkan bacchanalia at the Banya Russian Steambaths, well, the crazy party people who brought you that party (and will soon be bringing it to you again), are hosting  ‘Luminous Flux: Yuri’s Night‘ tonight at Galapagos. Gemini and Scorpio take bacchanalia quite seriously and this is sure to be a characteristically riotous event:

Gemini and Scorpio and Leo Kuelbs present a full weekend of eye-popping video art on the theme of flight, as explored through selected works, installations, live multimedia performances, and VJ sets. Luminous flux is the measure of perceived power of light. Over the course of this event, over 30 artists harness this power to present their unique interpretations of the theme, with works ranging from abstract to whimsical to challenging to dazzling. Kuelbs showcases video work in a unique 4-channel environment, a living gallery devoted to one artist at a time on four screens, all in one two-hour looped reel that will be shown on all three nights. G&S concoct their usual mix of live performance, circus, spectacle and dance party, this time revolving heavily around innovative video work.

Tomorrow is the first important social event of the spring season- the annual Gotham Girls Roller Derby Derbytaunt Ball. Head to Public Assembly dressed as your ‘best future perfect self’ to welcome the rookies in style!
