Miss Rockaway Boat Party!! This Saturday 6/24

Come dance with us onboard a World War II wooden Navy boat.

DJs Filastine (Seattle), Dirty Fingers (Black Label), and Aliqua
(Chicken Hut) spin booty bass, disco, and fucked up global hip hop.
The Quivering Mass (Tianna Kennedy, Zeke Healey, and Hannah Marcus)
belt out rare Alan Lomax sea shanties for land lubbers, and
Marygoround (New Orleans) lights up eye-popping flaming hula hoops.

Finish off a day’s drinking with cheap cocktails slung by the Miss
Rockaway Armada crew, answering questions about the most ambitious
project of the summer: piloting junk rafts down the Mississippi
River. Raffle ticket packages available for the skeptics.

Sunburns and tattered Mermaid Parade costumes welcome.

cleaning day!

today rebecca, todd, zoe, kevin, phil, a’yen and shawn finished organizing all the wood that the whole miss rockaway crew begged, found, and salvaged over the last couple of weeks. lots of nails were pried and screw-heads snapped. by the end of the day the space looked great.

(note the partially built pontoon in the background. 5 more to go!)
