  • Ellis Ashbrook, Idgy Dean, Liquid Sound Lounge, Caridad Sola to Perform

    It’s been a true pleasure bringing together so many great artists over the past few months for our Mixed Greens events at The Paper Box.  There really is an immense amount of talent in our city, and we’re here to share it with you.

    With that said, to kick off the fall season, we’re bringing you the biggest and best Mixed Greens party yet.  Ellis Ashbrook, Idgy Dean, and Heavy Birds are set to perform on the main stage while the garden will be in full dance party mode with LSL’s Jeannie Hopper, TONY’s Bruce Tantum, Sal Leone and AFP resident DJ Gatto.  And what will Caridad Sola come up with to engage, entice, or shock us with her latest performance piece? If that’s not enough for you, Daniel Maldonado of Gashouse Films will be taking the night off from his feature film production to surprise us with some live video creations.

    Brooklyn based progressive, exploratory rock band Ellis Ashbrook will headline our live music performances on Saturday night.  We’ve had this date marked on our calendar for a while now as Ellis Ashbrook is known for amazing live performances. The bands latest album, Meridia, garnered an 8 out of 10 rating by Music Connection Magazine Check out some of their videos and music.  The super-talented Idgy Dean, the solo project of Brooklynite Lindsay Sandwald, will also take the stage on Saturday. Lindsay who was invited to perform her haunted rhythm-driven pop songs at The Deli’s B.E.A.F (Best of Emerging Artists Fest) is a regular at the best NYC music venues. Opening up the night of live music, we have the hypnotic, psychedelic Brooklyn band Heavy Birds. Local media  have compared the band to such well-known bands as The Jesus and Mary Chain and The Velvet Underground.They recently released Mary/Moon, a 7″ limited edition vinyl record that can be purchased at local NYC record stores.  To close out the summer season, we’ve asked Them Damn Ninjas to play a special late night set (12:30am) of kick ass rock n’ roll.

    For this months event, we’ve decided to turn the garden into a full-on dance party. It’s still warm! Why not take advantage of the remaining warm weather?  We’re bringing in a kick-ass sound system, some lights and some excellent DJ’s who will keep you grooving all night long.  At the top of the list we have Liquid Sound Lounge’s Jeannie Hopper who has an endless record collection. She’s sure to drop a wide range of new, classic and rare grooves as she arrives after the LSL radio show on WBAI 99.5.  TONY’s Bruce Tantum will also be in the house and he’s sure to bring some quality deep and techy tracks that will keep your body moving. AFP event goers are very familiar with DJ vets Sal Leone and Gatto. It all shapes up to be an exceptional night of music in the splendid graffiti art splashed garden at The Paper Box.

    As the clock strikes midnight, Caridad Sola will present her latest performance piece for our guests. To date, she’s brought us the exceptional Deliver us from Eve il, El Paradon, All that Glitters is not Gold among others. We can only imagine what Saturday will bring.

    In terms of surprises, award winning Filmmaker Daniel Maldonado has something creative in mind for Saturday night. Daniel has been hard at work producing his first feature film, H.O.M.E and we’re thrilled that he is part of our Mixed Greens series.

    We hope you can join us. The Paper Box, 17 Meadow Street, Brooklyn, NY
