Under the Sea at House of YES, Bushwick.
to add to the normal hallucinogenic effects caused by aerial dancers, fire shows, confetti showers, and other unspeakables that normally alter our state of being at the house of YES, saturday night brings an immersive 3D underwater experience. slip behind some 3D glasses and submerge yourself into a world of underwater magic where all your friends are merfriends and you seem to have sprouted functional gills and you are likely to end up acting like this guy. i’m scared, and i’m going. i cannot help myself. i am argonaut and i must conquer this underwater land of mystery. (join me?) tickets here, $35. 3 wyckoff ave, 10pm-5am. costumes encouraged so dive in, baby.
