From the organizers:
The Vive Art & Music Benefit will be a one-night event that takes place July 27th, 2017. The Art Event, which will be held from 7 – 10 pm at Honey Ramka Gallery located at 56 Bogart Ave in Bushwick, is organized by artists Rachel Phillips and Anna Ortiz. The group of over 70 participating artists from the local community have come together to express their resistance against the marginalizing of refugees. Artists have donated work to be sold for the express purpose of raising money for the Vive Refugee Shelter located in Buffalo NY.
Simultaneously, musician & curator Val Opielski will present musical performances by (in order of appearance) Anton Sword, Amy Klein, Sunk Heaven, Dee Pop/Jack Martin Duo, OhmSlice and Density. This will take place at The Cobra Club (6 Wyckoff Ave) from 7:30pm till end. Suggested donation for this portion of the benefit is $10 (Give what you can, give more if you can).
Vive is an incredible non-profit shelter that works to house and legally represents undocumented people. Many of the people who arrive at Vive are in transition and do not have papers to cross into Canada or stay in the U.S. Vive welcomes all refugees seeking shelter without limits to their stay. While there, refugees are asked to work to maintain the building, teach and participate as members of the community. It’s a remarkable place that has recently been overwhelmed with an influx of people in need.

Last time we flashed back to the early 70s and explored the remains of the counter culture, the rise of the singer songwriter, Rock Icons, and R&B legends. Now we turn that time dial back again to when the Punk Rockers, the New Wavers, The Disco darlings, and Rock gods all collided together in over the top decadence. This is the late 70′s!!!
With performances from some of the best artists in NYC
