Thank you to everyone involved with the Ghost of Uncle Joe's Halloween Fundraiser last Saturday. We raised $4,000 for the Historic Jersey City and Harsimus Cemetery. Needless to say, the Cemetery's Board was very impressed and is looking forward to next's year event already. Maybe we should push up some daisies come spring ?

I am on my way out to New Brunswick to catch my kids, Thomas Francis Takes His Chances play at the Court Tavern. I know this is short notice, so we also have a show planned for this Saturday in a loft space in Newark. The kids, play with Luna Vroum who is currently touring through the United States with several musicians performing “Le Forêt du Moyen” (the Middle Forest), an original noise cabaret fairy tale. In addition to Chlöe Mandel, Luna Vroum’s “Forêt du Moyen” includes Andy March of Youth Club Records, Alley Dennig of SHV, and Corey Allan Hinchey and Jacques Mindreau of Krasnogorsk. The space is about 10-15 walk from the PATH in Newark, so catch a cab or just walk down Route 21 McCarter Highway until you get to 407 Mulberry. Doors are at 9pm. $7 beer included. Zed Never at 10 pm. Luna Vroum at 11 pm, TFTHC at midnight. As a bonus we are throwing in a FREE HOUR for everyone. Redeemable at 2am, so do everything you may regret between 1 am and 2 am.
