All Hail the Queen

First thanks everyone who came out to the PADNA Benefit. I heard that they raised a good deal of cash, or at least enough to pay for one day's worth of attorney time (lunch included). There where still about 1000 posters left when American Watercolor Movement's set changed into a gypsy drum rebellion. The Meltdowns and Tremble in the Heat rocked it, even if my PA and I started imploding. And sorry if I beat you on on the raffle :) I promise to put the gift certificates to good use.

Alright, in an effort to elevate my Amsterdam trip to awesome, Amsterdance 08 is this Saturday. They are still cleaning up in the Netherlands, which celebrated this Holiday yesterday. Tomorrow, Bar Majestic and The Merchant get a jump on Cinco de Mayo with their annual block party. My Roomie, DJ William McCamie spins all day. Party starts on the streets at 4pm. The after party finishes at Lucky 7's.

But Let me get back to Saturday because it is shit-loaded full. After you wake up. Head to Art House Productions to audition for their summer presentation of Sea Story. Have a 2-minute monologue and a good head shot ready to go. After they tell you that we'll give you a call, Head up to CANco lofts for PROarts Cash Bash. Cheap Art and music from 4 to 8 pm. $10 admission (one raffle ticket). Music by the Meltdowns. When that lets out. Head over to Newark for the Garden State Roller Girls Recruitment Party at Hell's Kitchen. After yo get fitted for fishnets, head over to Maxwell's for Any Day Parade, or (or both ? - hey do it all!!) you can go to the JCLGO White Party . Okay enough of me promoting other people's events. get your own blog :)....

Tonight (Thursday) , Styvesant CD release party is at Maxwell's. They play early so they can sell CD's and drink. If you prefer to perform your own music, poetry or fire eating. Head over to Art House Productions for their monthly Art House.

My Dear Friends,It's pretty cool that some of you are actually sending me /pointed/ queries asking about the next show. We're playing this Saturday in Jersey City at Canco Lofts, 50 Dey St, at 7pm. We're playing for THREE HOURS. Craziness. I don't know what mad man thought this was a good idea (*cough *tris *cough), but we're very excited about it. Hoping you can make it. It's a fund raiser for the Center of Arts in Hudson County, there will be an art auction, and snacks!We'll do a 45 minute electric set, then Adam and I are going to do a 45 minute open-dork-night acoustic thing where we try out new stuff and holler some of our favorite tunes, and then we'll wrap it up with a second electric set. Details for the show are in the attached flier.Other cool stuff:We're doing an in-store performance at Permanent Records, a great music shop in the Greenpoint nabe of Brooklyn on Sat May 10th, at 3pm: 181 Franklin St. All ages, free, a fun time, you should come.We'll be playing downstairs at the Laundromat on Thu May 22nd in North Carolina as part of WE Fest, which should be pretty rad.And we'll be coming back to Clash Bar to throw down with the Imperialists on Thur May 29th. We're playing Bar Matchless in Greenpoint on Sat May 31st! (Free, 21+)Then it's off to Knoxville, TN in June, with hopefully a layover in C-ville, VA. I need to get on that.Lastly, we've been writing a lot of new material and are gearing up to put together an EP or two, or three over the course of the Summer.Hey, check out Black Whales from Seattle, they're totally tits: check out Andrew's crazy bike ride: http://www.teacherontwowheels.comLove and kisses,Billy--
