Channeling Berlin ...

From today's New York Times ...

Berlin on the L Train

"Berlin is like New York City in the 1980s," Denny Lee
recently declared. "Rents are cheap, graffiti is everywhere
and the air crackles with a creativity that comes only from
a city in transition." Tonight, Brooklyn -- which also has
creative energy, graffiti and cheap(er) rents, thank you
very much -- channels Berlin. The German-born artist Jim
Avignon has curated a program of performances in honor of
"Europe Day" (their July 4th); the direct-from-the-Continent participants include D.J.'s,
dramatists, musicians, painters and the Austrian theremin
star Dorit Chrysler (now a New Yorker). Next up:
Williamsburg night in Mitte?
8 p.m., Galapagos, 70 North
Sixth Street (Kent Avenue), (718) 782-5188; $10.
