second handed news

Thanks for all the birthday messages last week. I am making a final push on extending my birthday party by djing at the Lamp Post tonight. Next Tuesday, my DPF (dance partner for life) Alix Nelson comes back to JC to make a special guest appearance. And for your calanders, mark the after party for the 4th Street Art and Music Festival on October 6th will be at the Lamp Post with me and Cootah on the decks.

Tonight, my funny girl, Melissa Surach hosts Babyhole at Toyeaters Studio. It's an open mike event that loves comedy and hates poetry, but must be torn between ironic poetry ? who knows ? So far, Melisa has recieved two death sonnets and one horrific haiku. I guess the pen is still mightier than the sword ?

Thanks you to everyone who came out to our art opening for Hiroshi Kumagai's Imposed Sancity last Thursday. The gallery is
open Saturday's from 12 to 6 pm and by appointment. In addition, we will have pictures posted soon.

On Thursday Night, JC's adoptees The Meltdowns play a free show at Otto's Shrunken Head in NYC.THere's a film screening at anthology film archive at 2nd/2nd in Manhattanat 8 pm. If you are in Newark, Joseph Waks has an reception at 27-mix and the C-WOW gallery has an opening. Their links are in the Control Center (scroll down - on your right)

This weekend I will be away at a wedding. The Hudson County One-act plays are in Hoboken on Friday and Saturday. On Friday Night, Lismore plays at the Crashin in Party at Gallapagos. On Saturday Night, Toy Eaters is having a grand throw down with House of Leaves, Bi-Polar J and Water Under Water Performing. In addition to the music, they have 6 video games to swallow your quarters. DJ Johnny Astronaut will be spinning and Norm will make the room pretty with lights. The night is full of musical choicesm because Polyabuse and Tiger Wall Flip play the Iron Monkey and Gravitas plays the Lamp Post.
