Flier of the Week: Project Matt's Saturdazed
Time to step up your flier game. Once a week, SOTC's going to hype a local event based solely on the flier's awesomeness. First up, a gangsta squirrel with a diamond-stud mini-grill attacks Manhattan!
Project Matt and Nick Catchdubs Venue: Home Sweet Home, 131 Chrystie Street, Manhattan Date: Saturday, February 24 What To Expect Based on the Flier: Hairy blinged-out beasts giving you the eye
Designer: Project Matt of the notorious FUNTIME PARTY TEAM. "I throw events downtown for downtown kids. Sometimes I may venture to the MEATpacking district or to Brooklyn, but I try to keep it street, nah mean?"
Concept: "The flyer is kind of a joke. My girlfriend is a super-big animal fan, so I try to incorporate a new animal into the flyer each week. And if you have ever been to Home Sweet Home, you will know that there is all kinds of taxidermy at the venue, so it kind of works. . . oh, about the bling. I like gangster rap so i thought it would be funny to kit the lil' guy with a fat chain."
Project Matt's event pitch: "Every Saturday, we do a guest DJ and this week is Nick Catchdubs from FADER. He's a really ill DJ and plays everything from Baltimore club remixes to crazy '80s jams with reggae and dancehall smashed in there too."
