synthetic zero


October 2005 Event

SCHEDULE CHANGE: The next Synthetic Zero event will be Wednesday, October 5, 6pm - 10pm and Saturday, October 8, 5pm - 9pm. Also, on Saturday, October 8, Laura Napier is curating an art show at the Mott Haven Branch of the New York Public Library (half a block away at Alexander Ave. and 140th); the opening is from 1pm - 5pm, so you can stop by there first then come to the loft event.
