Galapagos Art Space, the cultural performance club that is pioneering the "green nightlife" movement in New York, is officially open to revelers tonight at their new, 16 Main Street location in Brooklyn. At their "Welcome Wagon" party, hosts Mother Flawless Sabrina and the comic Kim Cea will welcome performers from Tony Award-winner Stew of Passing Strange to writer and cultural critic Cintra Wilson and "gogocuntrypunkmashupelectrohouse" dance troupe Daisy Spurs. And there’s more where that came from.

How will your programming change from the old Galapagos in Williamsburg?
We’re dropping the rock bands. And we have kids programming now. We’re doing the Dumbo Kite Flying Society event the first Saturday of the month at 9 am. Six kids showed up this Saturday and we’re expecting better wind next time.

There will be theater, cabaret, dance, orchestral music, puppetry. We have Lost in the Trees coming Sept. 27. Check their Myspace page.

When our rent increased $10,000 a month in December of 2005, things changed. Now we don’t have to do the late night shows. Now the rent is lower so we can spend more time pursuing our vision. We’re doing a black box theater upstairs that will open this winter.

Tonight’s festivities start at 7 p.m. and there is a sliding-scale admittance price that starts at $10.
