Newmindspace Hosts “We Hardly Knew V” Train Party Tonight
On the heels of a successful LES Lightsaber battle in Sara D. Roosevelt Park, the duo behind Newmindspace is back in the saddle again (cue Aerosmith). The latest public event is inspired by the termination of the V subway line beginning Monday morning.

Crowds will likely gather tonight at the 2nd Avenue/Lower East Side subway stop in a planned artistic protest party of the V train’s termination. Or, in the words of Newmindspace, “a portable protest party.” Dubbed We Hardly Knew V, participants will board the last car of the train, and ride all the way to Forest Hills. All the while, partying and dancing to boombox beats.
We Hardly Knew V
What: International pillow fight planner Newmindspace and train funeral coordinator NYCentric transform the V train’s final trek into a portable protest party (remember “Q Diamonds Aren’t Forever”?).
Why: Bust out your best underground dance moves to boom-box-fueled electro beats.
When: Fri., 11 p.m.
Where: 2nd Ave./Lower East Side V Uptown platform, E. Houston St., at Second Ave. Participation is free.
Sounds like the MOVE! art party train from last summer.
