Bushwick Underground present a night of music & performance on Sunday 11/19!
From the organizers, Bushwick Underground:
After a few months break, we are back with a powerful art show about failure and forgiveness! Join us on this one-night discovery journey hosted by painter and performer Linda Paúla Marcos.
Come explore what it means to accept weaknesses and let go. Our talented team of musicians and artists will make you laugh, smile, cry and reflect:

Conversation with our special guest, street artist ObserverObscura, a born and raised New-Yorker whose work was influenced by art of all mediums and mostly the un-commissioned, unknown artists of NYC. ObserverObscura is a project about loss and forgiveness, missed chances and wasted opportunities, observations of society and collective unacknowledged truths. The artist uses conceptualism, installation and street art as mediums. Her work will be projected during the performances.
