Join us for a concert in celebration of the Riverside House Celebration.

More on the band: CONSUMATA [KON-SU-MAH-TAH]

This Brooklyn, NY based band will make you dance: cumbia-punk, ska-funk, boss-a-rengue, dubbed out tarantellas. Using CUT-UPS (a technique hearkening back to the Dadaists and Beat Poets), Consumata hones in on the non-linear aspects of musical construction. Audible insurrection. Collaging sounds by means of serendipity, the result is organic and unpredictable. Maybe you'll step into a frenzied moshpit, maybe you'll hear your grandparents' folk songs ripping through the speakers. Whereever you find yourself, it will be wild.

Community rowing is free and open to all; no experience or reservations necessary, and lifejackets will be provided. Children (under 18) must be accompanied by a parent. For every rower under 12 one parent or adult guardian must be present. All participants must sign a liability waiver.

Please note: You must arrive at noon, as the Village Community Boathouse pair their boats, coxswains, and rowers by 12:30. Boats leave right after for the afternoon. Please check the Villiage Community Boathouse's social media feeds on Facebook or Twitter for possible last-minute changes due to weather or other circumstances. Or, call (212) 229-2059.

About Free Community Rowing
The Community Rows are free sessions that include a basic introduction to rowing for first timers (safety orientation, rowing technique, and terminology) and of course plenty of actual rowing on the Hudson River. The rows take place in five-person wooden rowboats that Village Community Boathouse builds onsite. The rows last, depending on river conditions and rower level experience, between one and three hours.Most of these rows have mixed crews with those that have never been on the river before and some old hands. Visit the Village Community Boathouse's website for more information and photos!

About Village Community Boathouse
Village Community Boathouse is a 501(c)(3) non-profit run by volunteers, based on the south side of Pier 40 on the Hudson River. While our community rowing programs are free, our facilities, boats and equipment require regular upkeep and repair. Your donations make our program possible.

We'll meet at 2:00 p.m. to learn about this year's FLOW art pieces, discuss some of Randall's Island's history, and talk about photographic composition and storytelling. Bring your camera or camera phone (Randall's Island Park Alliance will also offer a few instant film cameras to borrow for the event) and spend the afternoon capturing Island images that you can take home with you. We hope you'll return throughout the year to continue your photographic journey on Randall's Island.

Plant Patterns features the work of Adam Frezza & Terri Chiao, Adrienne Elise Tarver, Karin Haas, Liesl Pfeffer, and Nick Wildermuth. The artists use plants’ impressive natural characteristics as a means to explore various themes in their graphic works. Domestic and wild flora have provided artists with inspiration for centuries. The diversity and multitude of plant colors, shapes, and repetitive forms, which evolved to lure pollinators, caution predators, and promote regeneration, are naturally appealing to artists’ sensibilities.
