To prove that being kind to the planet isn’t just for the heart kid with the monkey when he’s kissing Captain's ass, local music industry vets (including Tom Cruise's drummer in 305-filmed Rock of Ages, nbd), nightlifers, and eco-gurus created Wynwood Green: a lush 12000sqft field boxed in by graffiti-lined walls, and providing about the most fun way to save the earth since Al Gore invented recycling. Every last Sunday of the month (starting this weekend), it’ll host a buttload of actually fun eco-conscious activities, local vendors, and a live music-filled party. With their powers combined, you can now party during the:
Day (noon-7p): Pretty much everything at this bike-/pet-friendly event is as green as Ray Allen when he got food poisoning while wearing his away uniform (eg, everything’s powered by biodiesel), including 15 booths selling stuff like wallets made from billboards, canvas reprints of old photos, Farm Fresh Market produce, Gaucho Ranch sliders, and sustainable skater threads from Ozone Clothing. But there’s more: Homebrewing demos from Brew Box, and live painting of a mini-ramp from the peeps at Alley Times, which also competes with the Alley Post-Gazette for the coveted prostitute/garbage-rummaging demographic.
Night (7p-midnight): Come nightfall, $10 gets you far less family-friendly, far more music-centric fun in next-door Armory Studios (it used to be a police... armory), which’s outfitted with a sexy lineup of Karl Stocker original photos including lingerie-clad Roxy Music performers, plus a stage rotating in local bands each month (The Hongs and Krisp are headlining this week), and unlimited PBRs all night long, so just remember what Al Gore always said: "I wrote, executive produced, and voice-acted all the Captain Planet characters except the monkey kid. Also, recycle those cans."
