Some call it punk rock, some call it grass roots, but labels aside, NYC-based Animation Block Party is dedicated to exhibiting the world's best independent, professional and student animation.


The summer of 2011 will mark the eighth annual Animation Block Party film festival. ABP has quickly become the premiere animation festival on the East Coast, showcasing the world's best student, professional and independent shorts of all genres.

For the past six years, the ABP festival has opened at Rooftop Films. The ABP-Rooftop experience offers a big-screen simulcast of animation on both lawns at the Automotive High School.

This year, ABP will open on July 29th at Rooftop Films and then continue on July 30th and 31st at Bam Cinematek. Every evening will feature an awesome after party with free drinks.

MUSIC

LIPS
"Steph Brown is probably better known as the face behind the keyboards for Fredericks Brown, one of New Zealand’s best. Currently based in Brooklyn, Steph has now gone solo with LIPS, and she’s already making some serious waves in the blogosphere with her latest track, ‘Everything To Me’. Taking a chilled bedroom style of production and coupling it with her adorable soft-spoken vocals, Brown has managed to create a hazily beautiful track that haunts the mind for hours after listening. If Steph Brown can pull off more songs like ‘Everything To Me’, it’s safe to say LIPS will be huge in the near future." The Music Ninja
