boo with who ?

it already started, i was there, costume stores, haunted houses, and the stress of what should i be for Halloween, thankfully, i already know, now i just need some foam. If you haven't picked up your pumpkin, stop by the farmers market today at the the Grove PATH, bring the kids from 4to 6 pm for some Halloween themed fun and candy.

Thanks to Charles' (aka djLeonard Smalls) run in with a laboratory monkey? really? yes really? Apparently you shouldn't tease testy test monkeys, I guess a similar warning, like don't tap on the fish tank was missing and Charles got bit. He's okay but may not be able to monkey around for his own PJ party now, I've got double dj duty tonight. I am going to start at Lucky Sevens PJ Ladies Night. In order to keep his perfect attendance record in tact ? or maybe he really has gone ape ? Charles is going to come in at 10:30. barring a speedy recovery,and considering her can't dj, cant drink, and has a fever his visit will be brief, try and be there if you wish him well.

After Lucky's, I am heading back to the Lamp Post for my second shift with Steff " Street Justice " Kautmann is for our Bro's before Ho's night. She'll start the night off and we will Zan and Jayna for the rest of the night. At 7 : 30 pm you can catch a different combination on screen at the Warehouse's presentaion of y tu mama tambien . In the big city, Flaming Fire plays a Pagan Halloween Party on Ludlow, this doesn't sound like a bunch of posers either :).

On Friday, aka Cabbage Night, aka Mischeif Night, aka Night of the Fires, the Iron Monkey is organizing a Zombie Pub Crawl. the undead should show up at the Lamp Post at 4 pm-Luckys 6pm- Barrow-8pm O Connells 9:30 pm - Iron Monkey at 11 pm (with bands) (all Bar crawl and Halloween rules apply). If you prefer your bars stationary, there are two great parties to the east and west of us. Closer by far is the Carnival of Souls party in Kearny. Housed in the Freeman building , this 21 and up, Free affair will have room for all of your Souls and Sins. To the East, Rublad presents their own Freaky Friday party, I also hear there is a Danger Party for Halloween. Oh ! It's so hard to compete with those quick and clever city kids.

You won't die if you are in JC on Halloween. But with daylight savings giving us an extra hour you may be come close. Since I am contractually obligated to promote my own party first, here's the full skinny on Part's One and Two of the Ghost of Uncle Joe's Party. Like I said a thousand time, s over we start early so you can drink late and make your of the Halloween Parties.

Halloween starts earliest at LITM , with a pre- NYC Halloween Parade Party from 5 to 8pm. (check out my last post below for info about Paul Vincent Gallery and LITM's Halloween Events). DJ Bill is at the White Star for a Zombierific Vinyl Solution, Lucky Seven's, has a Halloween Bash, LITM, Lamp Post, Port-o-lounge does, really folks everyone bar in town is having a costume contest with drink specials. I am not dressing up like my facebook page so I won't be regurgitating them all here. Parlay Recording Studios , is celebrating the opening if their new incredible 13,000 s/f multi-use film and photo studio facility at 161 2nd Street (right behind Shoprite), with a Halloween Fundraiser. Tigersapien and Aminal play. On a similar note and purpose, JC (recording) Studios, opened up in at 143 Columbus, bands can email pat ( to bopok the newly renovated space with 4 climate controled practice room. The studios are located just below, the Lex Leonard Gallery, take a visit after you wind back your clock and Saturday Night.

On Sunday, you can turn back the clock on baseball and visit an exhibition of vintage baseball by The Jersey City Skeeters. at Lincoln Park. My neighbor sent me this darling write up that I shall not attempt to plagiarise:
We play in games with rules established either in the 1860's or the 1900's in vintage old-style uniforms. We play teams from New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. The team was started a few months ago by David Kerans . Dave is resurrecting the history and legacy of the Skeeters, a team that existed up until the 1930's. We are holding an open scrimmage and batting practice in Lincoln Park West field (on the west side of Route 440) this Sunday, November 1, 2009 from 1-3 P.M. and November 7&8, time to be determined.
Any prospects should contact David Kerans at 646-469-3464 or Peter Harrison at 917-576-7181.
This is a casual event for people that are interested in checking us out. They should not feel intimidated if they haven't played baseball in years. Hell, they'll have the winter to get into shape. They should come out and play ball. We want to get people interested in the team and stoke interest for next season.

On Sunday, Kelly St. Patrick will perform at at Made with Love Organics Sunday Brunch from 1 to 3pm. Their monthly communal dinner just got a nice review.

On Tuesday, I will dj-ing at LITM for Ken Bastard's latest opening. His new work features almost 100 new panels entitled the Machine. From speaking with him last week, this undertaking may be more time consuming than his last opening, in which he painted for 24 hours straight. Someone bring this guys a pillow. Hope to see you there.

Happy Halloween.

back to business as usual ?

Well citizens. the dirty laundry pile keeps on growing here in JC and tonight's (W) Council meeting should be another display of public outcry (and apathy) over the recent modifications to the city council reserved parking spaces. Civictionists, One Jersey City continues to call for the resignation of Councilman Vega and Councilwoman Lopez, and object to the anointing of the Mayors' Special Aide to fill the now vacant Ward B Council spot. Tonight's meeting starts at 6 pm. This event is usually free, but rumours are now circulation that they may start charging an admission fee :) Hold on My mistake here, Jupiter One's show tonight at Radio City Hall is charging.

Free discussion will be on tap at Thursday Night's debate presented by the Left Forum. JC Resident Lenore Hulz, has organized a Presidential Debated Style discussion at Community Church of New York . I can't do the event justice, so here's her listing.

" Left Forum presents a debate between Tom Hayden, legendary 60's activist, founder of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and Progressives for Obama activist, Stanley Aronowitz, distinguished professor of Sociology, union organizer, and author of over 24 books and Cindy Milstein, anarchist organizer, writer and popular educator.These debaters will tackle the particular roles of capitalists’ power within and beyond the Obama campaign and administration -- an analysis found nowhere in Washington politics or mainstream media. Hayden, Aronowitz and Milstein will debate the impact of the power of capitalists as it relates to strategies for building Left alternatives."

After City Hall or Radio City Hall tonight, one of WFMU's finest representatives, DJ Terre T (The Cherry Blossom Clinic), will spin at the Lamp Post for Steff's DTJC night. Terri's show is legendary, hosting great live bands every Saturday from 3 to 6 pm. Terre T, will be assisted by Mike Sin ( no relation to Den-of ) Next Weekend, WFMU hosts their annual record fair from October 23rd to the 25th, just a note too that CMJ and about 1,000 bands roll into town next Tuesday. Hope there are enough couches in Brooklyn :)

Tonight at Lucky's, DJ Sub Babes has Lucky's tonight. His alternating Wednesday Partner, Pat Byrne, DJ Lucha will appear unmasked for this Saturday's Vinyl Solution at the White Star. Leonard Smalls will celebrate Amy's birthday and mark the end of his Pharmaceutical Green Giant Wythe with special guest DJ's. Almost a special guest DJ himself, DJ Alfonse (Cootah) will be spinning at the Lamp Post on Thursday Night.

The Powerhouse Art's District newest business, the Warehouse (based on location not size :) has begun their Movies on the Wall series on Thursday Nights at 7:30. Film lover, and Atelier Productions master Iulian Moise reels out Bonnie and Clyde for this installment. Also on Saturday Night oops i had listed ths as Thursday , Halloween spookiness begins at Made with Love for their opening reception for " Boo Bat and Pumpkin : Illustrations from the Children's book by Ashley Lucas. You can bring the kids for this one :) Made with Love also started serving weekend Brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 to 6 pm. Sundays are coupled with a DJ Vinny from noon to 4 pm. Check out her full schedule here

On Friday Night, Fortoul artists, Isaac Fortoul, Bobby Castaneda and Heather Gargon. will celebrate SOHO's Blue in Green 4th Anniversary. With a sushi chef and award winning sake it's no wonder that Flaunt Magazine (USA) & LUSSW (Japan) will be on hand in this quaint SOHO space. DJ Finesse spins it for you. Also in teh City on Friday Night, Dan Green (Kilsy The Honey Brothers ) plays at Mercury Lounge with Andrew Vladeck and his all-star big band with members of The Honey Brothers, The Prigs, Coulon, and Balthrop, Alabama. Dan's got another gig with the Lone Howdies on Sunday Night at Spike Hill in the Burg. On Sunday Night, Jody Porter the Black Swans plays at Mercury Lounge, Black Swan, Dan Haag, returns with the Campbell Apartment on Monday Night, only to be followed by Jupiter One for Tuesday Night's CMJ Showcase.

In our stage strifed town, Saturday Night has alt-country aka folk\Indie\country Asbury Park's the Amboys and the Front Bottoms at the Lamp Post. DJ Mark-ewok joins Leonard Smalls on Saturday Night.

Sunday is the Hoboken's Art Studio Tour, the one day event runs from noon to 6 pm. Looking to un-do the Jersey City's two day event, Hoboken Art Studio Tour is billed as " A Free City-Wide Self-Guided Walking Tour of Artists’ Studios & Community Gallery Spaces" thanks for the tip, I may hitchhike. You can also visit THE TIME BEING this Sunday . Our take on the convergence of time and place and what constitutes "history". 78 Sussex Street, in Paulus Hook, Downtown Jersey City. 12-4pm.

Talk with my hand not with the Facebook

It's Day 4 of "site maintenance" for my Facebook profile all I can say is that I didn't touch a thing , or as we say in Jersey City "it wasn't me". Fow now, I am just sticking with the Jersey City Independent for my news worthiness and gossip, oh wait this just in ... Jersey City is down a councilman (Ward B Phil Kenny) and Mariano Vega "temporarily" resigned his position as President of the Council. You know this is all over money, and the sad part is that while so many artists hustled for every dollar to make this years Art Studio Tour, merely having a portion of the funds that were allegedly passed on to the politicians could have funded most of these weekend events. That's OK we shouldn't be too pissed right ? yeah right !

So. thanks again to everyone who came out to support, Masks of God, the 4th Street Art and Music Festival, The Harimus Cove Cemetery Fundraiser, Vital Voices, Exquisite Corpse, Boxed, The Time Being, Raw Power, Boxed, NYKYTOMORPH, Boxed, Battered Bunnies, and all of the shows and exhibits for the Art Tour. YOU MAKE AND MADE IT HAPPEN. That's why we struggle and why we hustle.

You can relax a little easy tonight (R) and get out and do some enjoyables, I'll get back to my tirade parade later. 58's life drawing class starts at 7:30 pm, bring your pencil end drawing pad and happily hang out with a bunch of poses. If you didn't catch the Mike Ferrari solo show at Paul Vincent Gallery on Sunday, you can cruise to this border bound gallery tonight and keep in mind that will also open for the Hoboken Art Studio Tour on October 18th, with onelast gasp I will also remind you that Paul Vincent also hosts their own life drawing classes every Tuesday Night, time for me to pull the plug on this one.

What about me, what am I doing tonight ? Well I was going to stay home and stew, but instead I've got a roast brewing for Autumn's birthday tonight at the Lamp Post, her babe birthday train should run though at some point, perhaps after stopping at Lucky's for a Ladies Special ?

The Grove Street PATH will still be in and art creative format on Fridays, Uta and her vendors will keep this going into the Happy Holidays :) On Friday Night, Battered Bunny maker Megan Gulick presents a Human Marvels art show at the 32 jones Gallery near JSQ. In the downtown, the Stockinette Comedy Night returns for $3 they guarantee to put the funny where your mouth is. Until Caligula (aka Jessie) gets a mixers I won't be plugging his night at the Lamp Post on Fridays. Matt Maragno , Jessimae Peluso and Andrew Martinez perfprm plus 4th Street Stage Hosts s Trip & Fall, aka Alissa Ahlberg and Sarah Roxanne Shields will be on routine. You can also venture into teh city for Another Man's Treasure at the Manhattan Vintage Show ( Metropolitan Pavilion 125 W. 18th Street b/t 6th & 7th Avenues : Oct 9 (Fri):1pm - 8pmOct 10 (Sat): 11am - 6pm.

Art Tour-ture Weekend

stop stop please make it stop, emails..facebook...I'll tell you everything I know.. I promise just please stop telling me things or I swear they are going to kill me. here goes.. if I miss your event it is because I am being water bom-boarded. you can alos just check the links on the side folks. Plus, printed Full guides for the Art Studio Tour will be available at the PATH Station on Saturday and Sunday, but since you already live in town you can check in the Jersey City Reporter and the Jersey City Independent for listings as well as Jersey City's Website currently IS app for your iPhone (corrected you can use the Google Map made by the Jersey City Independent or try this handy app on your iPhone) if you'll have to walk it old school, get your legs up rent a bike through Easy Riders.

Celebrating their Nineth Year, Art House Productions presents their signature event the open miked Art House this evening. Unfortunately, Art House's planned Invention: Reinvention , a multi-media exhibit had to be cancelled for this tour. The first preview of JC Art Studio Tour Group shows will be at the Beacon tonight (R) from 6 to 8 pm. Park on street and save the $5 valet parking. The second pre-view will be Ruler and the Silk City Tattooist 99 Ways to Die at LITM. Olde Ghost, Nations in Exile (with Augie of Youth Against Nature) plays at the Iron Monkey tonight with the Drunkards. Gocha is spinning at the Lamppost tonight, don't take it personally if the Ladies Naturally gravitate to Lucky's though, Leonard Smalls is wearing a new fragrance, I don't know it's name, but I heard its made from cheap alcohol :).

Friday, the Art Tour does officially kick off at Grace Church with the Pro Arts Exhibit. You can venture from God's House to 58's Masks of God, a group show curated by Brenda Buck and Grant Worth. The exhbit has over a dozen artists; with local flavors mixing with some out-of-town guests. MC Paul Barman will be in house to help host.

Along with Bill the Legendary Tony Humphries will be on decks.

The Bounty for Saturday and Sunday is quite heavy.

If your question is what would I do ? well it would be to see as much as possible. The list of group shows is linked on the top right. 150 Bay and 140 bay hold a bulk of actual artists studios to visit along with the Exquisite Corpse show at 150 Bay and Ken Bastard and Megan Gulick's hare bending collaberation. While you are in the Powerhouse Arts district, also check out Raw Power at 350 Warren Street. Also known as the Morgan Building, muralogist Dylan Evans, has has organized national arists to paint this entire one block structure. My favorite artist studio to visit has always been Robert Piersanti's expansive space at 299 Pavonia, and my love of Jersey City's Alley's has me destined to check out Beth Achenbach’s Mish Mash show in the Alley Cat Gallery (coles between 4th and 5th) Rolando Ramos 1 pm and Kelly Saint Patrick 4 pm perform. In addition, a collaborative conceptual installation by Trish Szymanski and Loura van der Meule, THE TIME BEING takes place at 78 Sussex. But alas, I wouldn't miss Dylan Egon's " Garage Sale" on Barroow btwn York and Bright no I hope not but ......

My commitment for Saturday is the Juggernaut : 4th Street Art and Music Festival. Hundreds of artist. live painting, a children's art area, food, beer and 18 music acts converge. Including the Mission: Remission art benefit for Breast Cancer Treatment. NOTE: Regardless of what Mother Nature may have intentions of doing, this event is on.
