On Valentine’s Day there was plenty of love in the air for those in attendance at the 10th annual Valentine’s Village of Love presented by NY Night Train and After The Fall. The love themed variety showed featured a star-studded cast of performers from the Brooklyn music community in a “live review” style showcase singing lovey dovey covers with Alana Amram’s Love Boat Band backing them up, hitting classics like W.A.S.P.’s “Animal (Fuck Like A Beast)” (sung by MG Stillwaggon of Spite FuXXX), The Go-Go’s “Our Lips Are Sealed” (sung by Zohra Atash of Azar Swan) and Loretta Lynn’s “Don’t Come Home a-Drinkin” (sung by Hollye Bynum of Razor Braids) among many others.
Jonathan Toubin and a mix of several other DJs kept the romantic mood going long after the live music was done and the party continued well into the wee morning hours. And even better than all the fun and love fueled revelry, the event also served as a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood. Over $4000 was raised over the course of the evening for this vital organization that is more under attack now than ever before, showing the true meaning of love and what a community can do when it comes together!
