Parkside Lounge Crowdfunding for New Stage and Sound System
We’ve definitely reached the saturation point with regard to neighborhood crowdfunding projects. A zillion collection pots are simultaneously going around these days. Seemingly every business from the Bowery to Baruch is raising money to merely exist. The list grows by the day, whether it’s the Delancey Underground for research capital, the Living Theatre to evade eviction, or Rustic LES to simply open their restaurant. Either way it’s getting outta hand.

The latest entrant into the crowdfunding sphere is actually a personal favorite of Boogie staff. Century-old watering hole Parkside Lounge is seeking help from Lower East Siders via Lucky Ant, the website which managed to help save the Living Theatre on Clinton Street. Ownership is seeking $10,000 to “rebuild the stage, improve the sound system, and finally set up a bar back.” A mere $650 has been raised so far, with fifteen days remaining in the campaign.
Just remember not to play Lady Gaga when you’re there…
