The night begins with a screening of Wengrofsky's short film "Marti Domination in the Life of Dreams," a meditation on how the cinematic experience is akin to dreaming featuring Marti Domination (Cremaster I, Black Lips Performance Cult, Beaut).

The film will be followed by a performance by THE GODZ, an original NYC psychedelic band, who will perform on the 50th anniversary of their first LP. The performance will be accompanied by projections from East Village fractal mathematician Adam Alexander.

It will be a night to remember, although if you do it right, that might not be easy.
