On Saturday, February 9, Rubulad presents Love Unlimited! Join them for a night of expansive excitement and rockin’ Rubulad-esque romance.

For Love Unlimited, Rubulad invites you to experience a new space. We are not ones for overblown hyperbole but this venue is truly astounding. This former glassmaking factory is vast expanse of polished concrete with cavernous ceilings, glittering windows and enough square footage to seriously leave you gaping. Seriously. Sweeping metal staircases open onto an endless gravel courtyard of architectural oddities. This ample outdoor area offers fortress-like privacy where stubborn smokers will have extra elbow room and fire spinners will be able to perform with a dozen or two of their fellow conclave members.

Live music will echo off the turn-of-the-century brick, featuring Batala, New York City’s only AfroBrazilian Samba Reggae drumming band comprised of 40 women; Morricone Youth, the septet dedicated to performing archival film and television soundtracks; the South African-tinged jazz-blues-improvisational band Swirling Lotus Blossom Bandits; Friend Roulette: “at one moment, beautifully melodic chamber pop while at the next, cacophonous tribal psych,” and more!

Your DJs Ursula 1000, Dirty Finger and Vintage DJ will be able to pump up the volume like never before and really show you the dancefloor love.

In the cozy Cabaret Room, dark and adorable duet XNY
“breaks the boundaries of genres and somehow combines chaos and simplicity, controversial comedienne and songwriter Jessica Delfino will have you cracking up, and dj stereOtype will accompany harpist Mia Theodoratus.

And up in the air? Dangling from the soaring second story struts, Knotworld presents the Flying Lovers Aerial Bouquet.

Surprise acts will be added up to the evening of the event!

Feast to your heart’s content on scrumptious food from Bushwick’s Roberta’s Pizza. Take your paramour for a spin on The Homespun Merry-Go-Round. Share in the dazzling visuals of Norm Francoeur’s Light Circus Extraordinaire. Sneak an arm around your date while distracted by G Scopitronic’s Non-Stop Film Fest.

Don’t be a-skeered of the stroll from the subway! Swanky limo rides between the Jefferson St. stop and the space will be provided by Harvey the Magic RV and Sweetie’s Cargo Service.

Dress? Now’s your chance to wear that enormous costume that you were always afraid would take up too much real estate! YOU, too, can be an art installation! Wear layers, as you will want to explore the expansive outdoor spaces. Cupid “Shot Through the Heart,” online dating reject, Queen (or King) of Hearts, and romantic dancing diva-all eras: Charleston marathoner, 50’s bobbysoxer, Warhol Factory go-go darling, 70’s disco heartbreaker, 80’s “Like a Virgin,” 90’s grunge androgyne, 00’s candy raver or merely RED!
