Kutsher's Country Club is the last of the Borscht Belt grand resorts destination steeped in history. Recently celebrating the documentary release of "Welcome to Kutsher's: The Last Catskills Resort" directed by Caroline Laskow & Ian Rosenberg, it portrays Kutsher's as an iconic destination for the alternative vacation seeker for decades. The film was premiered at the New York Jewish Film Festival at Lincoln Center, and won “BEST DOCUMENTARY Audience Award” at the Miami Jewish Film Fest 2012. As recently as 2008 - 2010, Kutsher's has hosted many amazing concerts including The Flaming Lips, Iggy & the Stooges, Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, and Animal Collective, and from the 1940's to the early 80's, it was the place to catch the best comedians of the times from Red Buttons, Jackie Mason, and Buddy Hacket to Andy Kaufman, Billy Crystal, and Jerry Seinfeld. Rock N Roll Resort v2: A Psybient Soiree is the first stop on Shpongle Presents the Masquerade Spring tour and will mark the unveiling of the new production expanding the visual expression of the multi-dimensional auditory experience. Fans will be treated to two Friday night sets from Simon Posford with Hallucinogen LIVE and the DJ set Shpongle Presents the Masquerade. Live painting by the Greys during Shpongle Presents the Masquerade on Friday and onstage with Ott on Saturday promises to embellish the already mind-blowing sensory adventure. Add to that the genre crushing Conspirator performing two headlining sets and screenings of the documentary, "DMT: The Spirit Molecule" along with Q&A's and "A Spirit Symposium" with the film's creator Mitch Schultz and author and researcher, Dr. Rick Strassman, and A Psybient Soiree has synthesized a full weekend immersion into music, the spirit, and the divine.
