NURTUREart’s first spring fundraiser was held March 26, 2011 at House of Yes in Bushwick (342 Maujer St. Brooklyn, NY, 11206)!
Our night of celebration featured sets by DJ’s LIL LIL (of New Humans at the Cove) and James Mulry (of Particularly Random at Tandem), a performance by Gleich Dances Contemporary Ballet in collaboration with Andrew Hurst, a live concert by garage combo Photon Dynamo and the Shiny Pieces and of course aerial performances by the House of Yes gang!

Here’s what the Bushwick Daily had to say – http://bushwickdaily.com/
The entire proceeds of this event went in support of NURTUREart’s program and commitment to emerging artists and curators.
“Usually if a band claims to have a jazz background or to be influenced by jazz, it means they own a John Coltrane record. It doesn’t really inspire confidence. But Photon Dynamo frontman Frank Rathbone has instead applied the unconventional chord progressions of his jazz training to the crunch and clang of garage rock. It’s a very post-punk attitude, using musical aptitude in genre that doesn’t require it. But what could be more rock ‘n’ roll than the absence of defined structure? Plus, those “buh ba bas” are dead catchy.” -BushwickBK.com Bushwick Music Review by Amanda Farah
