Bridgeport Space Walk

We knew that with five participating spaces that many of us not going to make the whole journey on schedule. But that was ok. We started off at Mutherland and joined Vicki Fowler in progress with her performance and installation. The Mutherland Space is gonna be busy this summer.

Afterwards we went back to the C-PS where hours earlier the unlucky dutch guys and the version staff humped hundreds of sheets of OSB and lumber (NFO XPO booths) into our basement. Minutes after they chucked the last piece of wood down the stairs Musket began to confound our ears. They seriously kick ass. we thought we were on time but we forgot that we had to finish the Grolsch.

At this point we figured we were in trouble. We meandered over to Bernice's to catch Cathy of Gynoslayer in her mesmerizing set. Cathy waited for the Villagers and Version staff to make it over to hear her debut.

We tried to get everyone to join us for a short and beautiful set over at 32nd and Urban by Via Tania, but everyone was drinking at Bernice's.. they missed out. Bridgette Buckley curated the great group show and the space looked awesome.

Finally we made it over to Kaplan's and ended our traditional Version pub crawl turned space crawl in style with Mystery DJ Matt Malooly at the Ipod. At every stop of the crawl we noticed a surprising number of people in attendance. Perhaps the port is becoming the Community of the Future after all.
