Fire up the Grill, My Fever is Gone

Who ever thought that having a stomach virus wasn't productive? , tell me a better way to loose 10 pounds in three days ? I dare you !!! And just in time as the summer grills get cleaned off I will have room for your best char broilers. With the weather so nice, I am sorry to say that I will not, and thankfully do not have to spend a lot of sunny time updating for the weekend. Why ? because most of you have fled town.

For those of you who chart the course of the less obvious. JC and specifically Toy Eaters will not disappoint. Tonight. The full run of JC's Country inspired or influenced bands play. Newest to cross into this realm is the AAA Locksmith and Bailbonds. Featuring members of Flaming Fire and the Boyfriends). I have read word about Kamikaze Square Dancers for this ho down. I have to find my other cowboy boot for this. Any Day Parade, The Poconos, and WJ and the Sweet Sacrifice, who are returning from North Carolina will be there kids. On Sunday Night, The Poconos, reprise with Lismore. As Part of the Horror Prom. DJ's Leonard Smalls and Caligula Spin your bloody corsets afterwards.

At the Lamp Post Tara Elliot and the Red Velvets play. I don't know who they are but I will tell you that just mentioning Red Velvet has a tingling sensation on me. okay here's the link for the sights and sounds. Damn MySpace wouldn't let me look at the pictures without signing in ???

Also on the inside. My Room Mate DJ Bill is at O'Connell's on Saturday Nights and then at Lucky's on Sunday Nights. This Sunday of course should be most extreme with the Federal Government shutting down on Monday.

You can also take a jaunt into the Big City for a "Celebration of Art House Productions" at the famed ABC NoRio this Sunday at 7pm. ABC NoRio is located at 156 Rivington St. between Clinton/Suffolk. Art House pRoduction Founder, Christine Goodman will perform with two nationally-recognized poets, Dujuana Sharese of Cypher Movement and Kelly Zen-Yie Tsai of HBO's Def Poetry Jam.

On the outside, there should be numerous picnics and bbq's that I am sure you have gotten invite for. If you are stuck on something to bring besides beer. Try I nice pop-up dispenser of handy wipes. I love these things. Not only do they keep your hands nice and clean, you should also consider buying the flushable styles to keep your area south of the equator safe from Malaria or other unpleasantries.

On Sunday, you can be a good guest at the Ese Oro Gallery on Brunswick. The new Bama exzhibit is up and the back yard will be open. NOTE: This is a BYOB and BYOM/V affair. So if the only question you know is where's the food and drink it's not your destination (see Tuesdaya Mayors Block Party below) Things start at three.

Now that we've got your amenities settled, personally I will be setting up the volleyball net on MONDAY. I'd love to get so shout-in on who is going to bring a BBQ because I just scrapped last years in the trash on Wednesday. We will also need so volunteers for food so I will keep my ear to the ground. Mind you I don't plan to personally starve, so I'll have some starter stuff. Anyone who would like to set up the net on Sunday can contact me for the net.

Keeping the Picnics going. I will Be DJ-ing the Mayor's Block Party for Ward E at Hamilton Park on Tuesday. The Event runs from 5:30 pm to 8 pm. The event is for the residents and features plenty of family friendly stuff, Magicians, Bean Bag Tosses, Clowns, Sponge Bob, you get it as well as Representatives from every one of the City Departments. Even the Parking Authority is there !!! Please come by and give me a reason not to play the Macarena. This is a tough one :)

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--
