Wastedland 2: The Quest for UFO 907 & The Meaning of It All

UFO 907 (photo by Luna Park)

After a year of touring the United States with his darkly humorous, philosophical fairy tale, filmmaker Andrew H. Shirley brings Wastedland 2 home for it’s NYC premiere and a blowout celebration at Maspeth’s Knockdown Center on September 15. Following hot on the trail of the all-knowing UFO 907, a motley crew of graffiti miscreants band together on a quest to discover the answer to one of the most pressing questions of our time: What’s the point??


The film will be screened within an immersive art installation featuring work by ADAM VOID, Amy Smalls, CASH4, DARKCLOUDS, EKG, George Vidas, Greg Henderson, NOXER, RAMBO, Ryan C. Doyle, SMELLS, UFO 907, William Thomas Porter, and WOLFTITS. Musical performances by CRAIG ANDERSONIC, DIRTYFINGER, DJ DOG DICK, JACER RACER & THE UFHOES, KARMA KIDS, NINJASONIK and more throughout the evening.

When: Friday, September 15 | Opening reception: 7pm-midnight | Screenings: 9pm & 11pm
Where: Knockdown Center, 52-19 Flushing Ave, Maspeth, NY 11378

Noxer’s Book of the Dead

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

For fans of NYC graffiti, Noxer needs no introduction. Member of XTC, TFP, RIS, DOD… namsayin? For this solo show at Bushwick’s Low Brow Artique, Noxer’s dug deep into his blackbook. As one can expect from a true style originator, Noxer’s line drawings are highly inspirational, drawing from the iconography of ancient Egypt while remaining deeply rooted in NYC street life. Forget what you think you know about Noxer and come prepared to be surprised.
