Mixed Greens returns this month with a new date, but you can expect the same fresh, diverse music, brilliant performance art and thought-provoking video installations you’ve come to expect at AFP events. Plus, The Paper Box is in the coolest neighborhood in Brooklyn and the tacos can’t be beat!
What more can you ask for on a Saturday night?
Our original opening band for the evening, The Disappointment have another commitment, but El Pueblo has been added to the ticket. They’re a fantastic reggae, dub band (latin and jazz influences) who are known for their powerful performances. We are sure El Pueblo will get the night started properly.
Not walking the line between na trapeze, epic-symphonica, and electropunk, the music duo Muj is a mish-mash of musical styles. In their performances, they are known for playful improvisations and unexpected intense instrumentations. Muj segues seamlessly from ferocious, soaring guitar jams to moving melodic departures. They are now working on a feature-length documentary including an original soundtrack.
When The Coffin Daggers take the stage, get ready for an all out assault on your senses. A staple on the New York live music scene, The Coffin Daggers forge a new sound that will both overwhelm and delight the senses. The NY based surf-punk, instrumental rock band has released a full length album and two singles to critical acclaim.
The super-talented, creative, architect, performance artist Caridad Sola has rightfully become the resident performance artist for Mixed Greens, and with each stunning performance Caridad explores a broad range of social and cultural subject matter. During her last performance a young man (photo below) was so enthralled by her performance that he decided he wanted to be a part of it. As he began to crawl toward the large tub of gold liquid, he slowly removed his clothing.
Also performing at our August 25th event is the very talented, Sindy Butz. Sindy is a Berlin based visual and performance artist who is currently residing in New York City. Her work is influenced by social and cultural Anthropology studies, Moral- Philosophy and Spiritual Work.
Our video installation for our August event will feature the work of filmmaker, photographer Scott Nyerges. His video work has been shown at the Tribeca Film Festival, the Rotterdam International Film Festival and the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. Scott’s work has been featured at several AFP events and we’re very happy to be featuring his work on August 25th.
Flying in from L.A. to perform at Mixed Greens is DJ/Producer Elliot Dehoyos. Elliot is an excellent DJ who currently spins at his monthly Tribe party in L.A. and hosts his weekly internet radio show by the same name. We’re sure he’ll bring his best when he gets on the decks at The Paper Box.
AFP’s Founder & Director is also a DJ in the NYC underground dance music scene. Gatto spins a regular monthly gig on Montreal’s Techno.fm and is currently honing his production skills. In the past, he’s shared the decks with such greats as Derrick Carter, Josh Wink, Charles Webster and many more. Frank is the resident DJ for the Mixed Greens events and promises to bring in top talent each month.
