ANNOUNCEMENT OF MORE RECORDS still to come! There will also be an open mic for audience members interested in setting their own record.
Brooklyn jazz trio Blastoff!!! will be on hand as the house band for the evening. Doors open at 9pm, and advance $12 tickets can be purchased here.
All proceeds from the night will be donated to Lifestyles for the Disabled, a Staten Island-based charity that collaborates between local businesses to train and provide jobs to intellectually disabled adults as well as preparing them for independent living.
"Our events are known for individual heroism, group participation, hilarity, surprise and all-around general chaos," says URDB co-founder and event host Dan Rollman. "We've seen everything from the world's tallest carrot cake to 12 women standing on top of a man rolled up in a carpet."
The Universal Record Database is an open platform for world records, built on the philosophy that everyone on earth can be the world's best at something. Launched in November 2008, URDB.org hosts nearly 3000 world records from around the globe, with dozens pouring in weekly. They've been profiled on Good Morning America, CNN and CBS Sunday Morning, and appear regularly on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. URDB has sold out multiple live events on both coasts, and have plans in the works for a national tour in 2010. The site was recently nominated for an ECNY Award for Best Wesbite, and was named URLesque's 2009 Site of the Year.
