Happy birthday John Lennon! Today would be the 74th birthday of the legendary singer/poet/artist, and to celebrate, the Lennon Bus has arrived in Williamsburg.
The nonprofit bus has been touring the country for 17 years, and launched its New York residency in September with founder Yoko Ono. Several New York institutions vied for the chance to showcase the multi-million dollar studio bus today, Lennon’s birthday. The winner was Williamsburg Northside School.
The enormous studio-bus is currently parked in front of the school’s new building on N 7th Street and Havemeyer where kids are invited aboard to play instruments, record their voices, check out a 360-degree video of themselves and learn how music is made with professional engineers. They have until 5pm today to become rock stars.
