The Ocropolis is Dead. Long Live the Ocropolis!

Today the Village Voice reports that Monster Island the long standing Brooklyn artist space which houses both Secret Project Robot and Oneida’s recording studio The Ocropolis will close at the end of September. Before then there are still plenty of events scheduled including the annual Monster Island Block Party, taking place this Saturday. Since 2004, Monster Island has been a home to the reemergent Brooklyn scene housing tons of music events including early Todd P shows. Dozens of bands have recorded at the Ocropolis, and tons of artists have either shown their work in the gallery space or used the studio space to launch their creations. The good news is both the Ocropolis and Secret Project Robot will be moving to a yet to be disclosed new space in Bushwick.

The New York Times Features Kid Millions of Oneida

“The Man Forever album may be a solo endeavor, but it is also an expression of a musician who has become deeply enmeshed in the underground rock world of New York and beyond. In the late 1990s he booked the Knitting Factory in Manhattan, and by playing in more bands than even he can easily keep track of — as well as working at Oneida’s recording studio and operating its record label, Brah — Kid Millions has become a ubiquitous force in a constantly changing scene.”

To celebrate the new St. Ives LP, Man Forever, The New York Times’s Ben Sisario wrote a great profile on Kid Millions.  Recognize!!!

You can purchase the Man Forever LP w/digital download code from SC Distribution or itunes.
