The Listening: A Fundraiser For The Rockaways Featuring Photos By Wyatt Gallery

Untapped New York is teaming up with the Vanderbilt Republic to put together a pop-up party to raise money for the Far Rockaway Redevelopment Fund. The Listening is an acoustic listening session and art exhibition featuring Wyatt Gallery's photos of the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy curated by Jo-Anneke Van Der Molen.

There will be musical performances by Kendra Ross (8 p.m.), F. Stokes (8:30 p.m.), Zack Orion (9 p.m.) and Lívio Almeida (9:30 p.m.), a silent auction of Wyatt's photos, discounted drinks and a la carte pork belly and coconut chicken buns by Bite Size Kitchen. The fun starts at 7 p.m. at Gowanus Loft. Advance tickets are $30 or contribute what you can at the door. Buy tickets here or RSVP on Facebook.

Join us at this party for a worthy cause on Thursday!
