This gig is a benefit for Educated Little Monsters. ELM is a NY-based grassroots youth program and movement dedicated to providing artistic outlets and economic opportunity to native-Brooklyn youth of color while empowering them to become socially responsible leaders who are aware of the changes affecting them in their communities. It is a visual and performing arts program that serves as a home away from home for its youth whose neighborhoods are rapidly changing, displacing not only families because of gentrification, which is not only displacing families, but also after-school opportunities.
For the past five years, ELM has shared a space with Silent Barn, but now with Silent Barn's closing, ELM is in a position where they can take up the entire space, and have been fundraising in order to do so.

All Ages - No drugs - No Alcohol
The DC strives to provide a safe(r) space for all ages, drug free benefit shows with an emphasis on DIY ethics. We ask that everyone who attends and plays here be aware of the language they use and how it might affect others; racist, sexist, heterosexist, transphobic, ableist, or otherwise oppressive attitudes are not welcome. Please hold each other accountable so that all who come to the DC feel supported and welcome.
