The Battle for Mau Mau Island!!

The battle is over. The dead have been buried. Now the victors will celebrate their booty(ies) at a grand dance party in Bed-Stuy! (See photos of the battle here.)

An article on Mau Mau in L Magazine here.

A celebration of The Battle for Mau Mau Island with Rusty Lazer (New Orleans, Bounce!), Dirtyfinger (Black Label), Geko Jones (Que Bajo?!) and Barney Iller (Rubulad).
Last weekend the naval gangs of New York assembled to Battle for Mau Mau Island. Come see the fallen soldiers, harvested booty, and glorious victors at a new two-story space in Bed-Stuy.

Mau Mau gangs, gladiator raft jousting, cocktail catacombs, clothing optional watergun fight, underground gambling & film screenings of eerily beautiful movies set on the water, slide show and videos of the battle, and an awards presentation for the victors. Wet & wild all night long.
