Traveling The Twisting Troubling Tanglelows Trail

Greg McGoon will enchant children and parents alike with a live reading & book signing of his rhythmic, lushly illustrated, lyrical tale of The Tanglelows. The book is a visual representation of our interior lives. This tale for all ages is written in a poetic, spoken word style that invites one to reflect on one’s complex emotions in a Seuss inspired, whimsical way.

This premiere book featuring The Tanglelows, the first installment in a series, teaches children how to navigate their feelings and encourages abstract thought, while giving families a tool for voicing their emotions.

When: Sunday, September 25, 3PM – 5PM

Where in Queens: Lewis H. Latimer House, 34-41 137th St. Flushing, NY 11354

Admission: FREE event in Queens

Horror Sundays: 9th Annual Druid Underground Film Festival

The final installment of Horror Sundays with Billy Burgess’ Druid Underground and its psychotronic screening. Before and after the screenings in the Ready Room Bar, DJ Drew Redmond and his special guests spin 1950s and ‘60s rockabilly, rhythm and blues, soul, exotica, whacked out instrumentals, novelty records and more on vintage 45s.

Found Footage Assault Vol 4: A hardcore, one-hour mega-mash up hell-ride of absurd footage sourced from VHS tapes of homemade music videos, methenamine fueled biker rallys, twisted political propaganda, horrifying party videos and much much more! Get yourself a piece as American redneck culture is sliced open for all to see like a giant, horrifying cake.

Shorts Program: A break-neck barrage of rowdy short films celebrating the best in absurd, creative and ecstatic cinema both on and off today’s underground film radar. A spectacle unlike any other, Druid Underground champions subversive techniques that advance the language of cinema, challenge pre-conceived notions of underground art and simultaneously blow your mind out of your skull. Animation, experimental, performance art and MORE!!!

When: Sunday, September 25, 8PM

Where in Queens: Knockdown Center, 52-19 Flushing Avenue, Maspeth, NY 11378
