Thirty Days Arts + Culture Pop Up In NYC

LA's Family Book Store are opening 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."

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.
