70 North 6th Street
Brooklyn, New York 11211

New York is not a place for pop. It's not a town for of actors who want to be singers who want to be famous and get on the Fuse network. We like our music a little louder, we like our beats a little harder, and we like our parties a whole lot dirtier.

Avant Garden is a full sensory stress-releasing night of insane dancing and debauchery in celebration of the cutting edge sights and sounds of New York City. We are taking over Galapagos once again with two rooms of reinforced bass dripping through the wall. The night is packed with 3 live acts, 7 DJs, 3 Live Visual Artist, projects and more...

But that's not it... this is New York so we are counting on you to take this party to the next level. Bring your freak, your artist, your fire eating, and your dance moves to to floor. We want to see improptu burlesque, elaborate headdresses, performance pieces, and however else you get down. This is your night... we just provide the framework.
