People come to New York to see what’s cutting edge, what’s fresh, and what’s next. While many decry the “Disneyfication” of once skuzzy haunts like Times Square and the bland, big box consumerism which has taken over some parts of SoHo and the Village, the truth is there are still a ton of great experiences to be had in the five boroughs. Leave it to downtown Brooklyn to bring art, music, and cinema together in their Royal Flush Festival.
The 2010 Royal Flush Festival will be happening October 11-18 at the Knitting Factory in Williamsburg as well as other event spaces throughout the city and promises to dazzle and amaze.
The Royal Flush Festival takes its name from the underground (though nationally distributed) Royal Flush Magazine. Royal Flush Magazine, according to reports from mi2N (1), is all about “underground music, art, video games, pop-culture, and indie movies.” The partnership with Knitting Factory is a good match for Film Programmer and Co-Director Jim Muscarella as he’s said that Knitting Factory is “…the perfect spot to present our collection of both indie film and rock & roll.”
