The Village Trip – The Eighth Street Experience
September 10 @ 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDTFree
The Village Trip 2022 kicks off its two-week run with a grand party on Eighth Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. Join the legendary David Amram, Village Trip Artist Emeritus and “the renaissance man of American music”, as he toots his horn to summon us all to the revelry.
David will be joined by a host of musician friends, among them Dave Keyes, Earl McIntyre and Renee Manning, Jerome Harris and Antoinette Montague. Tilted Axes: Music for Mobile Electric Guitars will be on parade, their opening procession taking them from Astor Place along Eighth Street and around Washington Square Park to St John’s in the Village, where they will premiere a new composition created for TVT 2022 at the day-long Guitar Festival.
Who knows who else may stop by to jam or rap!
In addition to music, there will be live painting outside the historic Studio School, Bubble Dad and other fun and games for kids of all ages, animal adoption, and lots of food and drink available from Eighth Street’s exciting bars and eateries. And you can bop till you drop at Quiet Events’ Dancing Around the Decades silent disco at Astor Place Cube – three live DJs will spin the hits!
