No April Yo Doo?

It's true!

We're holding off until May for the next Yo Doo Mart + Faire. It's been a real crazy month around here. In the meantime, check out the new place - Bruar Falls in Williamsburg - and we'll see you in May, with what will hopefully be the biggest and best Doo yet.

In the '00s, a time of neanderthal government and outright contempt for the arts, there is Neg-Fi. A watershed moment in the history of art and music--some might say sub-nadir..." - Tom Moody
