Thursday is the New Friday

Okay. If you are watching the clock waiting for 5pm. Here's your first stop. My roomate, DJ Willliam McCamie is on his way there now.
The weekend starts early thanks to some clever work by God's son. For those of you with tomorrow off (and even if you don't) there's a full week-end ahaed. This Evening, Artist and Curator, Nugyen Smith has an opening reception at the JC Museum. His work SPRAWL will be at the museum for month's ahead. Tonight's reception is from 6 to 8 pm. You can also catch a performace by Nimbus Dance Troup for Grace Church's Maundy Thursday Service at 7pm. Meanwhile, The Ukaladies play Hank's Saloon in Brooklyn at 10 pm and Bryan Benninghove is in Hoboken.

I will be returning to my Dance duties at the Lamp Post tonight. You can expect the dancefloor set up with DJ Cat Juggler and I spinning and Ali making you spin from behind the bar. I'll be hanging around the DJ world all weekend. As on Friday, I'll be spining the closing party for Gordon Fraser's Intoversions on the Third Floor of the Grassroots Arts Facility. The Pocono's and Tremble in the Heat (fmr Savu Sea) rock it out. Things start early so take the day off on Friday.

Afterwards, I plan to head back to the Lamp Post for DJ Caligula's Birthday Dance Party. With DJ Cat Juggler providing cover for the self proclaimed "best dj in jc".

There's more live music to be had on Friday with The Plastiq Passion Band playing at The Fortune Cookie (Lucky Chang's) in the city. WJ and the Sweet Sacrifice along with Roadside Graves are playing at the Trash Bar in Brooklyn. WJ plays atearly (take the day off) at 8pm. Unfortunately for them, but good for you, is an Open Bar from 8 to 9 pm. Make sureyou pass some up to them. They are followed by another JC group the Roadside Graves.

On Staurtday Night, The Subway Surfers Return to JC for a show at the Lamp Post. They are matched with Six to Eight Mathmatics. The Meltdown's play Toyeater's as part of Jen's 30th birthday party. I'll be joining forces with Street Justice for my third straight night of DJ-ing. Have a nice Easter, or whatever you plan to do on Sunday.
