Party in Gowanus: Umwelten, the GSS Pre-Build Bash

Gillian Tozer

What do you get when you bring together ten artists, a whole lot of pies, beers, four bands and several hand-knitted sweaters on sale in 7,000 square-feet of a raw garage space, for one night only? Potentially a pie-fight, but most likely one big palooza of a party. These are all the ingredients that will be in the mix at Umwelten, a party to help raise funds for the renovation of and a move to the new . GSS is a workshop for designers, artists and entrepreneurs, providing the creative and gallery space. In addition the above festivities, there will be boat rides along the Gowanus Canal, a film screening of The Escapists by Andrew Gori, all culminating in a late-night dance party. Bands on the bill include Small Black, Precinct, Workout and Sister Big Stuff. With artwork by Emily Elsen, Brent Howard, Wenie Huang, The Minotaur, Jean Pelle, Jennifer Schmidt, Francesco Simeti, Ninknaz Tavakolian and Niall Van Dyke.
