The TAKEOVER and 11x11: Saturday November 10, 8pm-2am
The TAKEOVER is a night of performances including Ping Pong challenges by LiL Big Wong overseen by a scorekeeping ninja on crutches, WooWeiWoo spinning hot wax accompanied by dancing B-boys and B-girls and a bumblebee streaming live from Beijing. Music provided by live bands Nonlee, Pegasus Warning, Generator Ohm and Paul Josephs & the Metrosonics. Pongtology Radio will be providing live coverage of the event.
11x11 features works by local and national artists in solidarity with Ping Pong's aesthetics and rituals. The number 11 is of importance because contemporary Ping Pong matches are played to eleven versus twenty-one. New Age believers consider 11:11 as a set of numbers with mystical powers. Eleven is also the number of guns fired in a gun salute by the U.S. Armed Forces. After Judas was disgraced, the remaining apostles became known as “The Eleven.”
