What happens when Brooklyn band Ninjasonik pairs up with borough-mate creatives, Article? Well, somebody's get pregnant, metaphorically speaking that is. We're talking about the birth of their new single "Somebody Gonna Get Pregnant", recorded on a 12" vinyl record that jump-started a rad new show at the Front Street gallery. To celebrate the collaboration, 62 additional artists and musicians decided to join in on the pro-creation party. With MP3s, the music medium bar-none, the curators decided it was time to revive the first-born child of tunes, vinyl cover-album art. In an ode to a time when vinyl ruled, artists were told to do whatever they wanted to blank white album-covers, and man, that they did. Hop on the F train to Dumbo and feast your eyes on this artistic exhibition, which has developed into a culmination of album art created with everything from Sharpies and needles to Mardi Gras beads and Popsicle sticks. So, don't wait for the red dot to appear on you're fave piece of work—Get thee to the gallery!
Somebody Gonna Get Pregnant;RFCT Gallery at Front Street, Tuesday-Sunday, 11a.m.- 6 p.m., 111 Front Street, # 214 (between Dock and Old Fulton streets); until June 25.
