Not My President Vol. 14-A at The Beast Next Door 3/24

Not My President Vol. 14-A Monthly Show of Resistance
Saturday, March 24 at 7:30 PM – 11:30 PM
The Beast Next Door Cafe & Bar
4251 27th St, Long Island City 11101

You’re invited to our 14th resistance show! This month we’re celebrating Women’s History Month with an all female songwriters lineup and donating all money raised to Women Against Gun Violence and Everytown for Gun Safety!

We’ll be marching in the NYC – March For Our Lives before the show and partying at Idlewild no. 14 launch afterwards celebrating their all women issue!

For those of you who’ve never been to a resistance show before here’s a little background (for the rest of you beautiful folks skip for more info): Coming back from the Women’s March in D.C. in 2016, I wanted to do something beyond just calling my representatives and taking to the streets and while I don’t have much money, I sure as hell know how to throw a party. Lucky for me I have some incredibly talented friends too. We’ve thrown dance parties, concerts, and comedy shows and winded up raising thousands for Border Angels, CAIR-NY, ACLU, National Center for Transgender Equality, Safe Horizons, and many more. We’ve been featured in Time Out New York, Bric, and AXS.

The Beast Next Door Cafe & Bar is one of my favorite venues to play and I’m so happy to be having the event there!

The lineup is filled with badass babes:
Taylor Plas
Marissa Dwyer
and me! RoseAnn Fino And The Lovely Misfits with some special guests.

Doors are at 7:30pm. Suggested donation is $10!

Construction finishes at 41-15 23rd Street

The last time we were by 41-15 23rd Street was in December, 2016, when the project had just topped out.1 Construction is now finished on the 11-story residential space, as seen in the photo below. Check out apartment availability on StreetEasy.

According to New York YIMBY, “the 11-story, 71-unit residential building […] will have 59,200 square feet of residential space, and Karl Fischer is designing.”2

Full Reveal: 23-01 41st Avenue

The last time we stopped by 23-01 41st Avenue was in December, when pipe scaffolding had just been put up on the building.1 When we stopped by last week, we saw that scaffolding was mostly taken down to reveal the outside facade of the six-story project, as seen in the photo below. On-site signage calls for a September 2017 delivery, but a mid-2018 delivery is more likely.

Here’s more about the project from New York YIMBY:2

When it’s finished, the development will hold 25,302 square feet of residential space and 6,233 square feet of commercial space. That commercial space will be photo studios, according to the plans, and 37 condos will be stacked on top. The typical unit will measure just 680 square feet, which means the project will be mostly studios and one-bedrooms.
