Join us Wednesday, June 2nd, for an exclusive sneak preview of The Neistat Brothers, a genre-busting, eight-episode series on HBO consisting of experimental short films from the art-world brothers of the same name. We have been showing the hilarious and innovative short films by Casey and Van Neistat for years, and now they have their own series (aptly titled The Neistat Brothers) premiering on HBO, and we are very excited to be able to put together a special sneak preview to help spread the word. We hope you can all come out to celebrate the premiere of their new show with us along the water at Solar One.

There is no charge for admission, but please RSVP by emailing to reserve your spot, and head to Solar One for complimentary Radeberger Pilsner, food, live music and the chance to meet and congratulate The Neistat Brothers in person.

Venue: Solar One at East 23rd Street on the East River (Kip’s Bay, Manhattan)
8:00pm: Doors Open
8:45pm: Live music by Keepaway
9:00pm: Episodes 1 & 2 of The Neistat Brothers
10:15pm: Meet the stars at a reception and enjoy complimentary drinks courtesy of Radeberger Pilsner
Admission: FREE with RSVP.

The Neistat Brothers debuts Friday, June 4 (midnight-12:30 a.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO, with other episodes debuting on subsequent Fridays at the same time. A mix of comedy and drama, each episode spans six weeks in the lives of Van and Casey Neistat (pronounced “nigh-stat”).

The Neistats’ first leap into episodic television, the series is by, and about, the art-world duo known for pioneering the world of online video content. The brothers primarily use consumer-grade shooting and editing equipment, refining the inventive and resourceful spirit that is a trademark of their approach to film, pop culture and entertainment.

A mix of biographical vignettes and experiments in curiosity, The Neistat Brothers includes such segments as: a nautical challenge of varying proportions; smuggling authentic maple syrup into Amsterdam; a disappointing and revelatory trip to Mexico; studio renovations; and the search for Van’s biological father.

Prior to the episodes, Keepaway will perform live. Pitchfork says of their indie-hit “Yellow Wings,” ” it takes clear eyes and a crafty set of musical minds to create a song that’s both this deliciously heady and instantly engaging.”
