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.
