We’ve got the week off from party-throwing, so there’ll be a little extra time for going out. Aside from the must-see El Guincho and Ulrich Schnauss shows, we’ll be checking Babycastles’ video game geek-out happening at Queens’ favorite underground venue, Silent Barn.
Babycastles is a collective of gaming nerds who rescue underground and out-of-print video games from complete obscurity and install them in custom-built arcade cabinets all over town. They’re welcoming a crew of indie game designers from Copenhagen for this edition. Come for the Rückblende, stay for the akvavit.
