WITH DEATH BY AUDIO ARCADE
Interview with Senator Julia Salazar
Full Show Inside...
It's now month nine of the COVID pandemic and things are beginning to get worse again. We've seen record numbers of cases across the country, and NYC is starting to increase restrictions for bars and restaurants.
Our base of operations is the bar Wonderville in Bushwick. Prior to our residency here, Death By Audio Arcade had no permanent home. We moved our cabinets from place to place from 2014 - 2018, hosting residencies at various venues and galleries across NYC. (Check out our 2018 Retrospective). In 2019, we launched a Kickstarter campaign for Wonderville, which would become our permanent home. We curate and continue to maintain the gallery space. The bottom line of this fundraiser is: SAVE THE ARCADE!
On Sunday December 20, 2020; DBAA is hosting an online telethon via Twitch to raise $30,000. These funds would be used to sustain Wonderville for 6 months. Donor are encouraged to join WithFriends to obtain member benefits, bid on rare items in an online auction, and to follow Wonderville’s Twitch channel to receive a notification of when the telethon goes live. Confirmed telethon guests include Senator Julia Salazar, bands Mutual Benefit, Weeping Icon, Babay Jicks and the Ghoul Fiends, as well as interviews with game developers. Viewers can also expect video game speedruns, and a tour of The Wonderverse: a theme park hosted in Minecraft.
We’re going to fight to keep this space alive and keep our one-of-a-kind games available to the public!
