Nov. 18 Update: This show has been canceled due to architectural issues at the venue. The benefit will be rescheduled for sometime early next year.
Brooklyn atmospheric electronic rock artist Kai Altair and The Mermaids of NYC will be hosting their 5th annual Mermaid Lagoon ocean benefit show in Williamsburg on 12/4. Proceeds will be donated to Riverkeeper and the Whale and Dolphin Conservation organization.
The ocean benefit variety show features musicians, dancers, circus performers, and interactive art installations. All cast members are from NYC and share a talent for telling stories through performance - many of them are members of Lady Circus and hail from Brooklyn's circus venue House of Yes. This event is co-produced with Dr. Debra Tillinger (climate change educator at the American Natural History Museum) and Ali Luminescent (one of the official "Mermaids of Coney Island").
The show is Thursday, December 4th (Doors @ 9PM) and will be held at The Muse in Williamsburg (32D South 1st St). Tickets are available now and range between $15 - $25.
