19 Sep World premiere of new Moby/Debbie Harry video
On Sunday, September 24th, artist Moby’s new music video, “New York, New York” featuring vocals by Debbie Harry, will premiere at Faceboyz Open Mike, one of the longest-running open mikes in the East Village.
Directed by Saint Reverend Jen Miller (www.revjen.com) and shot/edited by Kat Fitzgerald, the video — an alternative version commissioned by Moby on a well-spent shoestring budget — features cameos from downtown Art Stars and their cohorts, as well as reenactments of classic debauchery at favorite venues. The director will be in attendance at the premiere.
Sunday, Sept. 24th @ 9pm
Mo Pitkin’s House of Satisfaction

ABOUT MO PITKIN’S
Mo Pitkin’s is a local joint that showcases the East Village at its best–with four different rooms on two floors, there’s a spot at Mo’s for everyone. Curl up in the dining room’s plush banquettes for Judeo-Latino cooking (like Paella Maranno or the Cuban Reuben), plus steaks, burgers, and the EV’s best rotisserie chicken; or sidle up to the century-old bar for tap beer, deep shots and special drinks like the Absolute Egg Cream and the Orange Gin Julius. Upstairs at Mo’s, check out an amazing array of performers in the 65 seat cabaret, or use Sadie’s Hideaway to either book a private party, or relax with a bird’s eye view of Avenue A. Wherever you go at Mo’s, you’ll find the same neighborhood-friendly vibe as the owners’ previous places, the Great Jones Cafƒ? and Two Boots Restaurant and Pizzerias. East Village-owned and operated, and named for an eclectic cousin who tried to assassinate Hitler (says he!), Mo Pitkin’s aims to carry on the neighborhood’s great tradition of artists and immigrants, rebels and dreamers, all living, working and eating together in a gritty, asphalt paradise that we call home.
