JC Fridays really kicked off a great weekend. Thanks to everyone who made it out and made it. Here's a link to Joe Russo's pictures from our opening for Dylan Egon's United Saints of Oil at 58 and Dylan's link some of his prints. This show and most of the art exhibits that opened on JC Fridays are still up, so you still have a chance to check them out. In addition, get your outfits ready for an American Idol Costume Party on July 3rd, as well as July 4th for our annual Volleyball BBQ at Morris Canal.
Our Groove on Grove, for JC Fridays was also a great success, thank to The Black Hollies, The One and Nines, The Milwaukees, and Jupiter One who rocked it under the Big Top. Today (W) The Demands and The Subway Surfers will bring the musical thunder. Expect some black leather and dark humor from Subway Surfer's front man Eric Fusco. The Demands, Jahna Rain, who also plays with Mister Badger will keep you warm between her verses.
After the show, head over to Van Vorst Park for the season opener of Van Vorst Park Assocation's Film's in Van Vorst Park . Tonight's movie is Iron Man. A full list of the shows is here http://filmsinvanvorst.wordpress.com/ . Movies are every other Wednesday, they start at about 8:30 pm, rain dates are the following Wednesday. Bring a chair or blanket, and some popcorn. This Friday, Art House Productions, is presenting a "Bad Movie" Night by screening Wicker Man, I haven't seen it, but based on their billing I assume that heckling and talking may be allowed during the show. Just don't screen "FIRE"
Late Tonight (W), it should be DJ Sup Babes (Brian Grundle) at Lucky's and Steff is hosting a Soft Rock Party with LULU. Beforehand, they'll have the Yankees Red Sox and the Phillies Mets Games playing for a soft jock rock.
Thanks for the humble showing at the White Star last Saturday Night for the debut of Sit and Spin Saturdays. Matt and I tinkered with needles and the mixer for the first 30 minutes, but after that it was all all WAX affair. This week, Uncle Joe's Veteran, the CEO of Something to do Thursdays, Neil McCoy spins. Next Saturday Street Justice does her thang. I am on for this Thursday at the Lamppost as Leonard Smalls plays cross-street at Lucky's, just dance your way up there or down here to see us.
For some real great dance performances, check out the Nimbus Dance Works 5th Season Home Opening Performance at Grace Van Vorst Church. Thursday's performance features live music by NYC-based Chorus, The New Amsterdam Singers. The Gala opening is also a fundraiser for the Church's Community programs, such as their Breakfast Plus program and their Senior services. There's a champagne reception after the performance on Thursday. Performances also run Friday and Saturday with student/Senior rates as well. Here's the link for tickets.
