Faculty foes throw Bleecker blowout over N.Y.U. plan
October 18, 2012
BY TEQUILA MINSKY | Musicians against mega-development rocked out at the Poisson Rouge on Wed., Oct. 10, to raise funds to fight N.Y.U.’s 2031 superblocks expansion project.
The evening featured a lineup of stellar musical performances, with headliners John Zorn and Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore.
A highpoint of the benefit at the Bleecker St. club was the set by the 11-piece Tribecastans, which included a hurdy-gurdy, jaw harp, accordion, washboard, a bevy of horns, a slew of strings and various exotic instruments, all played by extraordinarily accomplished musicians.
