Tonight, the Williamsburg Gallery Association presents its monthly Williamsburg Every 2nd: Art After Hours event, a chance to visit a number of the area's art spaces past usual closing hours and enjoy several related events. The WGA has organized transportation to Williamsburg from Chelsea on the ArtBus, a free ride departing at 6 and 8pm from the Chelsea Art Museum (556 W. 22 St). When in Williamsburg, be sure to stop by The Front Room Gallery (147 Roebling St) for the release party of free103point9's latest Audio Dispatch 7" Radio Ruido: False Rosetta, artist Tom Mulligan's homage to spy numbers shortwave radio stations. The release will feature live performances and Radio Ruido remixes by electro-acoustic composer Damian Catera, DJ Pause, and turntablist North Guinea Hills. After 9pm, as the galleries begin to close, Williamsburg green bar Oulu (170 N. 4th St, Brooklyn NY), in conjunction with alldaybuffet and the WGA, will offer $2 drinks to benefit the Performing Arts Middle School 113 in Fort Greene.

Following the weekend, at 6 to 9pm on Monday 18 December, Lower East Side's Cuchifritos gallery and project space host their annual fund-raiser and silent auction. Curchifritos has worked for the past six and a half years to offer exhibition opportunities to underrepresented curators and artists, and will be hosting its benefit at Sara Metzer Gallery in Chelsea (525-531 W. 26 St).
