DJ Purevile!.

Start Friday night off right with Happy Hour at Japan Society! Indulge in an ice-cold sake bomb and drink in the art of the Society’s acclaimed exhibition Bye Bye Kitty!!! Between Heaven and Hell in Contemporary Japanese Art. Also on tap: local DJ’s spinning pop, metal, and synth hits against a backdrop of Japanese horror to accompany the eye-popping aesthetic of the exhibition. Make a donation to Japan Society’s Japan Earthquake Relief Fund and enter to win elegant and eccentric jewelry by Purevile!, exotic and ergonomic ceramic sake servers by APRRO Design, or a Bye Bye Kitty!!! catalogue. Come for the art, stay for the drinks, and vice versa!

(with a cash bar and $6 sake bombs!)

Proceeds from online sales of red and white APRRO sake bombs through will also be donated directly Japan Society’s Japan Earthquake Relief Fund.
