THE JACKIE FACTORY invites you to
REASONS TO BE CHEERFUL
The JACKIE FACTORY + MOTHERBOARDS 2016 HOLIDAY HANG
168 AVENUE B AT CHARLIE PARKER PLACE NYC
SUNDAY DECEMBER 4
8 PM - MIDNIGHT
The tradition of a HOLIDAY HANG, an online community's designated space for venting, shaking out the holiday demons or occasionally actually spreading cheer, was celebrated on The Motherboards for many of our early years. We were inspired to bring it back this December, with a twist: In a year that has been so trying for so many of our audiences, collaborators and cities, we wanted to do the Holiday Hang in person, face to face.
REASONS TO BE CHEERFUL is that gathering, and will be held at one of 2016's only pieces of great news - ABBY EHMANN's new bar on Avenue B, LUCKY. Admission is free and the cash bar is super reasonable. We will be collecting donations of any size at the bar for ZANI'S FURRY FRIENDS/ NOLA FURRY FRIENDS for their new shelter, currently being built. Our evening's soundtrack comes courtesy of JACKIE 60/MOTHER DJ ALTHEA LOVELESS and her BIG SAD CHRISTMAS and VERSAILLES ROOM GREATEST HITS playlists for the brilliant LUCKY JUKEBOX.
