Strepthroat isn't something to scream about (DRAFT )

You would think that being sick would have meant plenty of time to work on my blog, but being sick was all about watching A Bronx Tale, Red Dawn and Law & Order. That is rest, now back to work.

THE INTAGLIO PROCESS (courtesy of Nathan Kanofsky)
Intaglio is a traditional form of printmaking that involves transferring an image from a fixed matrix to paper, usually with the use of an etching press.
Silicone Intaglio is a new hybrid photographic process where a large film is exposed to a light sensitive plate. The parts of the plate that do not receive light are washed away in the developing process, exposing the substrate. The plate is then rolled by hand with oil based ink mixed to the artisty's color desired. The plate is placed on the press and covered with printmaking paper which is 100% rag cotton. It is then rolled through the press with felt blankets over it pushing the ink into the porous paper fibers and thereby transferring it onto the exposed substrate. The plate is then removed and again hand rolled with ink continuing the process to make multiple impressions.
Gallery Lucy is barrier-free. lucy ... 917.536.2682

Alright!So, we got ourselves a gig on a Friday night at the new Luna Lounge in Williamsburg (Brooklyn, not Virginia, although VA is excellent and we will go there this Summer)! We're opening up at 7:30 on Friday the 25th of May, which is really pretty awesome. After reading about the place from Tris McCall and Jim Testa, and seeing as how we have some good friends out in the burg, I had to get us a gig. We lucked out - Rob who books the Luna tends to be fairly selective of who he puts on, has a good reputation, and giving us this slot he's expecting us to bring heads! So you should come out and kick it with us, and bring all your friends. We've got a whole show planned out, including, yes, The Dance, which I swear we will YouTube soon, due to popular demand. Or you can bring a video cam and do it yourself! We have something special planned or later in the evening, too, for those among you who don't want to stop dancing with us. In other news, we're currently cutting a single for two of our new tunes, Club Sedition and Shelter. We tracked it live, we have a couple of things to dub, but it's almost done and it's already as a rough mix ten times better than anything we've done before. It's really nice working with a producer who's been at this a long time, "gets" our music, and works with us so well (Gerry Griffin the Fourth, Temple of Tuneage in Verona). It's a home studio, we're getting a free ride, and the quality is top-notch, so we're quite grateful. Hopefully we'll have it mixed, mastered, and pressed by late June. Even sooner, if physically possible. Tonight we're moving in to our new rehearsal space in Jersey City which we are sharing with the good gentlemen from Water Under Water. It doesn't smell, we can play late, it's like we're a REAL band! Like everyone else we know, we're out of Montclair and moving on to the next chapter. Last Saturday we got our mugs shot by Ms. Colleen Gutwein, who won't let us see the photos. Colleen helped us choreograph The Dance (which we will teach you, it's easy!), is helping us coordinate the after-festivities for the 25th, and will be taking care of the scheduling for the short tour we're going to do. We have a number of good gigs coming up this Summer (Asbury Lanes!), we expect to be doing some short mini-excursions into the South, and it looks like the tour will be a x-country thing in the beginning of August. I'll let you know as events unfold, but it's definitely an exciting time for us. Stop by our myspace page which tends to get updated with the gigs sooner than the actual webpage, which tends to be more inane rambling and funny pictures and such. So, to recap:The MeltdownsFriday May 25th 7:30pmLuna Lounge361 Metropolitan Avenue Brooklyn, N.Y. 11211Let's show the Brooklynites and what kind of crazy we've been working on here in New Jersey! Looking forward to seeing you soon,Billy MeltdownP.S. Does anyone want to start a band called The Expensive Haircuts?P.P.S. Adam and I want to do a Daft-Punk esque side project called Four On The Floor.

AS FOR BLACKHOLE:Seriously, you will not get shot at BlackHole. Comedian Donnell Rawlings from The Chappelle Show was shot at after doing a set at Jordan's Fish and SteakHouse in Jersey City. YOU WILL NOT GET SHOT AT BLACKHOLE. I wasn't lying when I said, "BlackHole is the only comedy show in Jersey City you won't get shot at." The next BlackHole is on May 30th. Check my blog, Fear and Dread, Guilt and Shame for things.Thanks!Melissa

About the scene...
Over the last several years, Jersey City has distinguished itself as an important center for the arts not only locally but globally. Its numerous galleries, arts centers and the support received from local audiences are a testament to a thriving arts scene right across the Hudson River. As a result, more and more artists of every variety are increasingly making Jersey City their home. This is notably true for avant-garde jazz musicians. As the number of spaces within the greater metropolitan area that feature this music has shrunk dramatically in the last few years, musicians increasingly are turning to self-promoted events to keep this vital music alive. James Keepnews is an independent jazz musician and promoter who's organized a platform for cutting edge jazz for four Saturdays in May.
About the promoter...
James Keepnews is a musician, writer and multimedia artist. He has performed with dozens of bands and performing artists over the course of two decades, including Daniel Carter, George Lewis, Holland Hopson, Joe Giardullo, Linda Montano, Damian Catera and many others. Keepnews received his B.A. in English at Hamilton College in 1988 and attended the Interactive Electronic Arts program (iEAR) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, receiving his MFA from there in 1998. He is currently preparing several releases for his his record label, Metaharmonc ( For more information on James and other participants of the series please visit

No More Project 001 Gallery??!
Well folks we always knew we couldnʼt have it forever and the time came to let go of our beloved Project 001 Gallery. The space was lent to us while vacant and waiting for a restauranteer to rent the space. We have held many exciting events there and am so grateful for having had a gallery for nearly a year to express our ideas and meet so many of you. RockSoup will still be using 001 Gallery for Special events but will no longer continue its bi weekly programming or hold regular gallery hours. This will allow us to focus more on our giant show at MFA and the Festafeniceʼ.

Itʼs hard to believe that RockSoup is just under a year old , but itʼs true. RockSoup held itʼd first meeting on June 21st 2006. Some two months later we were working with Design Grace and NEW magazine on JCʼs first Creative Guide and then a month after that had our own gallery space. Now RockSoup has taken itself a step further and is in the process of incorporating so we can take advantage of all the wonderful things that go along with being legit. If there are any.
We have many exciting projects planned so if your interested in becoming a part of RockSoupStudios send us a request on our myspace or respond to this email.

**STUDIOS for Rent in RockSoupStudios LOFT SPACE
RockSoup has the great fortune of having itʼs own amazing Loft space to continue working on majore peieces of artwork as well as hold events. Our Loft space at 660 Grand street is 5000 sq ft. Boasts 18ft ceilings, a 2500 sq ft rooftop with view of NYC skyline and with individual studios within the space. We have a DJ boothe, a treehouse, punching bag, climbing rope, and a wood shop in construction.
Spaces range from: Storage and use of $250 per month. Available from 10am-10pm
Private Studios $400-700 per month plus utilities
Studios are available as soon as June 1st and are very selective. Must be working artist with a steady income as well as other criteria. If your interested in joing RS and sharing our great space email John Fathom at
