Jaunuary 1st Friday


The Rocket Cat Café presents Out of our Element by By Alexa de los Reyes















It’s a New Year, and the creative people on and along Frankford Avenue are meeting it with new work and new creative energy.  Shake off the sloth that a New Year’s revelry can leave you with and get your butt down to Frankford Avenue Friday Night!

Oh, and don’t forget to keep your eye out for Albert!  Snap a picture, and tag both him (his full name is “Albert OfKensington“) and yourself to be enetered for a change to win a vintage Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby Tshirt!
