Saturday, May 9, 2009

On Saturday, May 9th we welcome in a new era of psychedelia to NYC and the world. An annual high-tech sendoff of Truman Capote's Black & White Ball, BLB is part masquerade, part love parade with any form of glowy finery acceptable for this night of art, dancing and
full-on black-light.

10pm til 5am+
with a styling pre-party 8-10

Where: Collective Hardware
169 Bowery Street
Just south of Delancey

Cost: $30
Sold out unless you have a
realllly awesome costume

Style: Black light reactive, neon colors and luminescent white, things that glow, blink or leave trailssssssss… Retro chic, future geek or time travel. The dancefloor will be hot - Less is best!
