Rooftop Films Presents Dark Toons

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Things that are very New York: accepting your bike as a piece of furniture, having an easier time finding a taco at 3am than computer parts during normal business hours, and making up for your lack of yard with an awesome roof top. And it’s late spring, so it’s time to make use of those roof tops with this year’s season of roof and park movie screenings is starting.

Tonight is the Rooftop Film Series presents Dark Toons, a collection of shorts featuring toys and chicken heads with special powers, a dragon stuck inside of a doll’s body, the world inside of a slaughterhouse, pulp fiction characters in a lost love story, a drug deal gone bad, and many more films exploring some darker aspects of life. As a bonus, Braids will play a set before hand and there’s free drinks at the after party!

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
