Loomstate Organic, an ecologically minded clothing company based in New York, brings Earth Day back to its psychedelic roots with a unique celebration of the environmental holiday’s 40th anniversary this Wednesday.
      Forty drummers — led by Hisham Akira Bharoocha of Soft Circle and including musicians from the bands Aska, Oneida, and Lichens, among others — will take part in a drumming ceremony to commemorate the occasion, followed by DJ sets by Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear. Opportunities to explore a “twenty-foot-tall pyramid interactive psychedelic installation” abound alongside carnivalesque offerings such as face painting and psychic readings.
     All interested Earth lovers in NYC can celebrate forty years of Earth Day in the free-wheeling atmosphere of its original decade with free shuttle service from the Bowery to the event location in Midtown.
     Our Magnificent Earth will take place at Good Units on Hudson, 356 West 58th St (between 8th & 9th Ave.) this Wednesday, April 14 from 7-10 p.m. All interested in attending should notify for free bus pick-up every 30 minutes from 6:30-9 p.m. from Rogan Store, 330 Bowery St. (corner of Bond).
