|Heavy Birds, Pet Rescue, 3.08.2014|
Pet Rescue is what you really mean when you use that all-too-overused term "DIY space." Christened as a multimedia punk utopian performance/exhibition/work space in the East Williamsburg Industrial Park by its impressario Brian LaRue (SZ #30), it immediately strikes visitors as an all-too-underused resource for Brooklyn rock and roll. Simply put, once you've gotten out there for a show, and met Brian, and hung out with his crew, and met somebody you like, and dropped your cigarette butt into your beer can on the roof and chucked it into the recycling on your way out for a post-show drink, you want to get out there every night for a show, and meet Brian, and hang out with his crew, and meet somebody you like, and drop your cigarette butt into your beer can on the roof and chuck it into the recycling on your way out for a post-show drink.
It's just that fun, all-inclusive atmosphere that Brian's so damn good at cultivating. And you maybe don't show up every night, because people live there, dammit, and have to sleep sometimes. But when you do go to 346 Morgan Avenue, and you walk through that unevenly lit loading dock and climb the concrete stairs to Pet Rescue — it's right when you think "this might not be the right place" that you discover you're in the exact right place. God, I'm making it sound like Narnia, but you get the point, which is that it might be Narnia.
So without further ado, we cordially invite you to celebrate the shit out of life with us and some great bands at Pet Rescue* on Saturday, March 7 for night three of ZeroFest 2: Infernal Equinox.
*Again, possibly Narnia. I don't think I'm overselling this. — JM
