Black Lives Matter. End white supremacy. Defund the police. We recognize that we would not be here without the inspired work of Black American artists.
Welcome to The Bunker Stream. As we obviously cannot gather our community publicly as we have been for over 17 years, we will be bringing you streaming video from the studios of our family of artists. We hope this helps everyone in our community stay connected. Big shout out to The Lot Radio for being massively helpful in facilitating this for us. Note that we are treating these streams like parties, in that they are ephemeral and not archived. If you want to experience them you have to tune in live. Our artists are mostly playing marathon sets here and we want them to feel free to try new things and experiment with the format. This Saturday we welcome our resident DJ Mike Servito for an extended set. Usually we all gather for a debaucherous night of jack tracks and pineapple dranks at Bossa to celebrate Servito's birthday every Virgo season, but this year we're going to do it virtually.
Donations will support Equality for Flatbush and the artists involved in the broadcast (Mike, ACE, The Bunker). Equality for Flatbush is a Black/POC-led, grassroots organization which does police accountability, affordable housing and anti-gentrification/anti-displacement organizing in Flatbush, East Flatbush and Brooklyn-wide. We believe very strongly in the work they are doing, especially as so many in our community will soon be facing both eviction and loss of unemployment benefits.
The visual accoutrement for today are being provided by ACE, using touchdesigner to enhance the stream.
