Loomstate Drums Up Anticipation For Earth Day

Apr 15 2010 - 2:08pm

Midtown Manhattan isn't the first place one expects to encounter a drum circle, but last night 40 musicians gathered in Good Units at Hudson to make a racket in honor of Earth Day. The occasion was a Loomstate-sponsored bash that got a head start on commemorating the green holiday, which actually isn't until next week on the 22nd, but that hardly seemed to bother anyone. As an added bonus, Loomstate sponsored a party bus to take downtown kids afraid of crossing 14th St. unaccompanied all the way to the Hudson's 58th St. location.

There were more than a few eco-friendly fashion fans who ventured out to join the label's designers, Rogan [1] Gregory and Scott Hahn, in enjoying the surprisingly awesome drumming and accompanying video installation. Rogan and Scott were in good company with other creatives like Pamela Love [2] and the gang from threeASFOUR milling about and dancing to tunes from Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear, who took over as DJ once all the drumming stopped.
