Space available in our building!

Starting immediately, you can get space in the building that houses the Gemini & Scorpio Loft! New studio rooms have been built out on the first floor, and we reserved the largest ones to share as office, storage and craft space. Ideally we'd like to see them split between 2-3 performing arts groups and bundled with rehearsal and show bookings upstairs, but we're also open to individual co-working and co-crafting shares. Learn more and apply here: http://bit.ly/GS_office. Or, to get your own space, see http://www.bandspacesnyc.com -- the room layout is here. (If you're going to do quieter things, please request our side of the building! It's A-C.) For anyone renting a room in the building, we'll offer discounts on any Loft rentals for meetings, rehearsals and shows.

A classic speakeasy party in a secret Brooklyn loft, with live swingin' sounds by vintage jazz bands, blazing burlesque divas, exotic cocktails, and the best electro-swing DJs remixing and reinventing vintage grooves late into the night. "Gatsby-era fun with a twist of new-school vibe" (The Village Voice).

The night starts with an introductory dance class for swing basics by Brooklyn Swings, who teach at our loft every Monday night. Live music until 1am by The Blue Vipers Of Brooklyn: early jazz, swing and blues, with catchy four-part harmony, homemade washboard percussion and frequently bawdy lyrics. Burlesque fabulousness during and between band sets by Delysia LaChatte and Logan Laveau. Sweet remixed vintage beats after, until the dancing is done.

And introducing: the gambling den! We're still working out rules, but expect two tables of Texas Hold'em going till at least 1am. You could win drinks and tickets to future events.

Dress code (required): The Jazz Age never ended, it just got funky. Dress accordingly: "An event worth wearing that ridiculous zoot suit for." - TimeOut NY; "Corsets and top hats tweaked with studs and leather are totally appropriate." - The New York Times. Suggestions: vintage (1920s-1940s) with a modern twist, cabaret, burlesque, Weimar Berlin, classic Hollywood, classy, sassy, tailored, hats, feathers, sequins, beads. Effort required. Dress code modern-friendly after 1am for the electro-swing dance party.

Tables: We have four tables with four seats each that can be reserved. Those tickets are sold in pairs for $80 ($40 ea).

4.6 - All-American Pie

Thur, Apr 6, 7pm-12am, FREE / $12 for three pie servings
Gemini & Scorpio Loft, Gowanus, BK - use form below for location

Reserve your pie (limited availability) | Event on Facebook | Social media: @gemini_scorpio #geminiandscorpio

We tend to think of pie as a standard, round, applie-filled thing -- and we tend to think of America(ns) in the same kind of generic way. But as this proud passport-holding Russian Jew refugee can tell you, "Americans" really come from all over the world, and our pies do, too. And nothing brings people together better than food.

We want to celebrate Pi Day with as many international versions of pie as we can get, from YOUR cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Who wants to bake (or buy) a pie of their heritage, whatever that may look & taste like (sweet, savory, any shape)? We'd love for you to be the first to get tastes of everyone else's pies, and then present and serve your pie to other guests. Message us!

    Currently confirmed:
  • Our historical chef, Rebecca Silverman, will bring something extra special
  • Anna Cole - English mince pie
  • Angela Mauri - Italian chocolate salami
  • Evan Morgenstern - Ukrainian pennik with apricots
  • Jaclyn Atkinson - French-incpired espressio silk pie
  • Jennifer Glick - German/Jewish plum pie (Zwetschgenkuchen)
  • Nadia Rohrs - Greek feta tart

For anyone who can't contribute a pie, you can buy a $12 ticket for three servings of others' pies instead. Advance sales recommended, as pie availability is limited. We're hoping to donate a portion of sales & otherwise collect money for Southern Poverty Law Center -- TBC depending on how much we can bring in (ACLU just raised millions, so we're trying to switch it up). If you don't want pie, come on by for free for drinks & conversation.
