By now the concept of a “pop-up shop” has lost much of its luster, due to the proliferation of brand/lifestyle hybrids that seem to have taken over NYC in the past year and half. However, the idea of an impermanent space which hosts a wide variety of rotating events is still very hotly in demand- especially when it’s events are curated with the same care and taste as a gallery space as opposed to a retail outlet. That is why it’s especially exciting that LA’s beyond-hip Family Book Store had decided to open a NYC outpost for one month entitled Thirty Days, which will feature “weekly performances, symposiums, and showcases from contemporary artists, musicians, writers, filmmakers from all over the world.”

The line-up include some of the most prominent names in the downtown art scene, from a live performance by Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore as Mirror/Dash, to a discussion with Albert Maysles and Peter Sutherland- to an evening of comedy with SNL’s  Fred Armisen. In addition to providing an enticing physical space, Thirty Days will also be creating some fascinating original editorial content for their site- which right now includes an interview with artist Ben Jones along with others.

If you’re in NYC tonight be sure to stop by their opening, which features Aska + Brian Degraw of Gang Gang Dance as well as a psychedelic light show by Gary Panter and Joshua White.
