Eric Schmalenberger hosted a party titled BANZAI!!!!!!!!!!
Art and Performance Bash on Memorial Day Weekend.
There was art on the walls and art walking the
floors as New York City's mobile billboards of
fab strutted their stuff.
Here is a quote
from the Facebook
page for the event: "Returning for round
two, Banzai!!!!! is THEE art and performance bash
that brings together the best of nightlife, performance
and modern art in a mix of crazed, inspired uproar.
With over 50 of the most WOWtastic artists from
all over the New York creative scene, one can
only imagine the sort of delicious delights that
await our bashful Brooklyn in this ultra-special
Memorial Day hyperfun soiree. (Every bit as hot
as the last and twice as juicy.)
Aiming to immediately
disrupt the context in which viewers can experience
art and performance, !Muffinhead and Eric Schmalenberger
work to bring together some of the most innovative
and enjoyable masterminds in the art world of
today. There is no hierarchy of media here and
anyone willing to travel to the limits of their
imagination or beyond has a home. More then just
an art event or a performance event, BANZAI!!!!!
cross-pollinates the best aspects of the creative
community and allows them to infect, affect, effect,
and deflect one another. This evening promises
to bring you art dynamics, intergalactic modern
dance, sexy hermaphrodite strip tease, “nerdcore”
hip-hop, powerful kitten magic, overly glamorous
light shows and a whole mess-load of ferocious
gender bent realness.

BANZAI!!!!! is a big bang on red hot roller skates
and the main reason you probably won't be back
