sometimes there just isnt enough letters in the d-a-y

Look i really really love to tell you everything that's going on this weekend. I've posted most of it in pictures to the right, but i f i miss something this time around its because there is a sh!tload of stuff going on this weekend. I know you prefer a one horse town or a two trick pony, but we live by the water, so get used to the idea that and octopus needs to come ashore every once in a while and ink this place up. Of course, I say this with no disrespect to those of you who don't like to see our little urbian "littered" with flyers, but not everyone gets their information from the Internet : post on.

Maybe it was Obama's speech in Cairo, but Middle Eastern Dance seems to be surging these days. Tonight (R)Emiline and Ariel ( x- Grassroots Community Mondays) perform at Water Taxi Beach in Long Island City. As part of JC Fridays, the Hoboken/Jersey City Bellydancing Meet-up Group perform at the Journal Square Cafe (above Cohen Optical - near Loew's Theater). And Saturday, I am dj-ing for a Paws and Shimmy Animal Shelter Fundraiser at the Elks Club in Hoboken. The event features Middle Eastern and Salsa Dance Performance, Food and Drinks included 7pm to 10 pm $25 adv/$30 door Contact for tickets. After Paws and Shimmy, I'll be DJ-ing for the debut of Sit and Spin Saturdays at The White Star Bar.

Performance Enhancing a bunch of other things, you can catch Chico Mann headlining tonight's (R) Afrobeat Ferstival at the Kniiting Factory. Bryan Beninghove is got his downtown shakedown at the IMAC tonight (R) , and Pow Wow plays Santos Party House. Damn as you know JCFridays is pretty Heavy, we've got Flaming Fire at 10 pm for Dylan Egon's United Saints of Oil art opening at 58 . Grove on Grove has The Black Hollies play first at 6 pm, then it's The One and Nines at 7 pm, The Milwaukees are at 8pm, with Jupiter One at 9 pm. LITM provides liquidity. The Black Hollies enocore at the Grand Banks with The Fringe Dwellers, Any Day Parade and the Novellas. the IMAC also has a special FREE show for JCFRIDAYS and Made with Love Organic Bakery has more than cakes cooking :) DJ Street Justice will keep things going later at 58 and Caligula is at the LP.

Again, besides the many art openings for JC Fridays, on Thursday, Fish with Braids Gallery hosts a reception for Animal Pharm by Lee P. Johnson, On Saturday Night, The Resonating Object Group Art Show curated by Gocha Tsinadze (opens at the Lex Leonard Gallery. Along with the art show there is also live performances.

There's a Dance RockParty at the IMAC, Hotchacha from Cleveland plays with locals little big, the secret photos and the unstoppable death machines. At the Lamppost, the alien space ship lands as Manchild and Mr. Pants and the Adventure Soundtrack performs. Moonlight Mile (123 Harrison St, Hoboken) host WJ and The Sweet Sacrifice (10:30 pm) and Any Day Parade (9:30 pm) they've got a bbq at 7 pm but get there early if you want to eat or bring your own grillings.

Finally and speaking of grilling, Cootah's Annual Picnic is back on for this Sunday, and the forecast is right. Bring Games, Food and Blanket, but check your bad vibes, psycho drama at home or at least locked up to your bike. I'll be bringing the kickball set, I am looking for some recruits for a June 20th k-ball tournament vs the Morristown Madame Roller Derby Team in Morristown. Plus save, Saturday July 17th for the first round of JC Olympics, god willing. Volleyball is still on for Sunday at Morris Canal. Chad's got then net and radio be there at 1 pm to set up.
