Thu Mar 21st: TOM RAMON vs FUCKINTOSH (live) + "The Firemen's Ball" by Milos Forman

on Sun, 03/17/2013 - 00:59


Movie Nights at the Rabbithole continue this month with a screening of Czech filmmaker Milos Forman's "The Firemen's Ball", the film that pushed Forman into exile from his native country, opened by a one of a kind live performance by TOM RAMON vs FUCKINTOSH. 
"When the sounding worlds of Tom Ramon vs. Fuckintosh collide, prepared piano sounds are hunted by manipulated CD's. Meaning, a vintage wurlitzer will pussyfoot between Fuckintosh's rhythms controlled by a converted record player.

Here's the video Justin shot of last Saturday's awesome event.  Thank you all so much for coming and being a part of a night packed with double-necked guitars, shadow puppetry, beach balls, a holographic buddha, awesome bands and plenty of other signs of rampant goodness.  We raised almost $3,000 in tickets, raffle and art sales, which will be instrumental for imminent repairs, but even better it was damn good to see all your fine faces.  Thanks you, and cheers.

Music by Jason Bartell (Fang island) recorded live at Rabbithole

In response to damage and losses caused by Hurricane Sandy, Rabbithole is holding this fundraising benefit to help the space and its partners recover from November’s catastrophe. Right now, Rabbithole is in jeopardy. Its primary life force and partner, Rabbit Movers, suffered severe losses during Hurricane Sandy, losing all of its vehicles as well as flood damage to spaces in both Dumbo and Gowanus. Emergency funds have been stretched and run dry, and without immediate help, Rabbithole runs the risk of going under.

If you believe in the extraordinary power of artist generated community and what Rabbithole does, and you want its cultural and educational programming to continue to evolve and flourish, please support this Benefit and join us to raise money to keep this institution alive.

Rabbithole has recently received fiscal sponsorship from Fractured Atlas, a 501(c)3 art organization and public charity, which enables donors to make tax-deductible contributions.

Thu Jan 17th: Sugar Life (live) + "Female Trouble" by John Waters

on Fri, 01/11/2013 - 20:32


For a wonderful start into the new year of 2013, Rabbithole is pleased to present it's first movie night of the year with a very special performance by SUGAR LIFE, followed by a screening of FEMALE TROUBLE by John Waters. That means double trouble!


Born in France, Sugarlife (Christian Dautresme) is a performance/music artist living in New York City. “It’s like watching a cheap live daytime soap in which the main female character unravels onstage. There is usually some sort of molting which follows…” says Sugarlife. “Imagine if the United States became a third world country and people had to resort to living room theatre or decrepit mall theater for entertainment. I’m trying to… manifest the subconscious imagery that inhabits the world of dreams and the world of films by the likes of David Lynch, John Waters, Bunuel, Almodovar and others.

"If looking at my work in the context of Guy Debord’s society of the spectacle, the essential character of the spectacle is said to be a 'negation of life which has invented a visual form for itself', While trying to go against the grandiose spectacle created by society, I aim to eventually be assimilated by it and to bend the light that illuminates it. 
"Sugarlife explores and desecrates the time-based and spatial notions ofperformance art, identity, and sexuality with an entertaining and often absurd interactive, live performance. It tends to be hilarious as well as very scary. Whether charging the air with electronic blips, conjuring up a damaged visitor from the realms of the immortal spirits such as Kazuo Ono and Tatsumi Hijikata, or singing in a celestial soprano, Sugarlife becomes a sonic shaman whose transcendence is the only constant.  Neo-Fluxus freak out? Absurdist action art? The ghost of G.G. Allin as a drag queen from a distant planet? Sugarlife transcends any classification."


The king of bad taste at his best. This classic John Waters tells the depraved life story of obese criminal Dawn Davenport (Divine), from her bad-girl youth as a go-go dancer on Baltimore's infamous Block to her death in the electric chair. Populated with Waters' typical appallingly hilarious cast of screwed-up social misfits and dysfunctional lunatics, this is a wonderful thoroughly deranged comedy. An outrageous delight which has formed the raw back bone of today's cultural subconscious.
