Ikue Mori, DJ Olive and Stephen Moore were sitting in the middle of a circle, a circle of chairs surrounded by a circular wall in a room that you’d just have to trust was in New York City if you didn’t know better. The dim lights weren’t aimed and there was no clear direction from which the sound was emanating. Heavy beats came from the side while thick aural waves and blurred referential quotes - a smear of The Skatalites - flowed through while dotted lines of sound stretched overhead. It wasn’t overwhelmingly loud, but the sound was everywhere, creating an impression of umbrellas being opened beneath rain clouds.
F or G Train to 'Carroll St' (fourth stop in Brooklyn from Manhattan). Exit at front of train. Walk 2.5 blocks from stop down Carroll.
(From the Brooklyn Battery (toll) Tunnel, use a right-hand toll lane and take the next to the right lane after the tolls and take the "Exit Only" lane for Exit 26, Hamilton Avenue. Stay/bear left down the exit ramp and go left under the highway (Stay to the right of the suppers that divide the road!) where you will be facing/about to cross Hamilton Avenue. Clinton Street is diagonally to your left, between Hamilton on the hard left and Huntington to the right. Go into Clinton street and continue on Clinton through 4th, 3rd, 2nd and 1st Places to Carroll Street. Parking is not a problem.
From the Brooklyn, Williamsburg or Manhattan Bridges, Queens, or Long Island, head S/W on the Brooklyn/Queens Expressway (BQE/278), towards the Verrazano Bridge. Stay in the center lane until Exit 26 to avoid getting caught up in the left and right exits-only. It is then the exact same exit and procedure as above because the BQE merges with the tunnel exit and the Gowanus Expressway just before that point.
