DO IT - 04.18.06

"Event List" sounds like a boring graph, so now this is called DO IT, which sounds like kind of dirty and cool. DO IT.
OK, so some people have asked me how I choose which events go into this, since it seems like a random selection of goings on - concerts, openings, parties, etc. The answer is: I choose what to put on here by asking myself, "Would I go to that?" And if the answer is "Yes", it's in. So sometimes I may leave out a show by your favorite band, because I don't like them; or sometimes, I'll put in a band or a play that I haven't seen, but would see anyways out of curiosity. And sometimes I'll include events I'd attend if I could afford it. Also, I tend to be partial towards events with free drinks, and even more partial to events with free FOOD. Man, do I like free food. Especially hors d'ouevres. Oh my heck. When I link the event name - "Bent Fest opens" or "Diamond Nights" - that means I've linked it to page that has detailed info on the event. When I link a venue name, that usually means I'm linking to a venue site, or a site that lists the venue's address. Linked prices connect to ticket vendors, and all small flyers are linked to larger, more easily viewed jpgs. Finally, asterixes next to a listing mean I may show up. This handy guide will be posted on the toolbar for future reference.

If you'd like your event / flyer / whatever listed here, email it to me and we may put it in. Emailing an event does not guarantee that it will be listed. Cheers! ~Andrea PS The Bkln Underground film fest opening event is invite-only - tickets are available, however, to the opening night screening that follows the party, also at Brooklyn Lyceum.
