Joonbug New Year’s Eve 2011 Bash at Forum New York

Joonbug will be promoting the New Year’s Eve 2011 celebration at Forum New York nightclub. Forum New York is one of New York’s hottest clubs and this New Year’s Eve party promises to be fit for an Emperor and Empress.

This New Year’s Eve Party will be hosted at Forum’s 3,500 square foot, multi-level interior that is majestically lined with Corinthian columns. This regal ambience was inspired by the architectural lines of Caesar's Forum, merged with the sophistication and style of Manhattan. Specifically, Forum New York boasts an impressive 50' mahogany bar and gold leaf textured paint.

Bananas, Bands, and Library Cards

Lou Reed, Maureen Tucker, and Doug Yule, members of the pioneering New York City art band The Velvet Underground, will be reuniting for a public appearance at the New York Public Library on December 8. The influential musicians will not be joining together for yet another band reformulation, but they will be key speakers in a panel discussion with rock journalist David Fricke to discuss their music and influence in the budding art scene that germinated from New York during the sixties.

The band forum, a part of the “LIVE from the NYPL” series, is a response to growing interest in the group by way of the release of the new book, The Velvet Underground: New York Art. The book contains a rare collection of handwritten music and lyrics by Reed, unseen performance photographs, underground press clippings, and posters and cover art by Andy Warhol, the group’s manager/producer during their early years.
