Alex Waterman in the new IPR space at 110 Livingston

Now, this was some excellent news. The Issue Project Room not only scored a 20 year free lease on their new space in downtown Brooklyn, but they also received a $1.1 million grant from the city to help with the renovations. Sa-weet. This couldn't have happened to a better organization. Hands down, some of the best out-there music curation in the city. Even when the schedule isn't my cup of tea (Which isn't often.) I understand and appreciate the direction and intent. Smart and risky, these guys just kept plugging away. Nice to see the recognition. Even nicer to see the survival and the flourishing.
