Good morning shoppers,

Santa called at 4 am to say the the elves are on strike and had planned to spend the ten days leading up to x-mas on a holiday party rampage. Apparently,  they haven't gotten a raise since 1976, and they have also taken exception to the recent trade deal with the China that outsourced all non wooden toys to North Pole Limited Incorporated (Shanghai).

zoning in on 58

first thanks to all the DJ's spun it up right for the Superheroes and Villains Party last Friday:  Street Justice, Pastiche, George Soul Fernandez, Leonard Smalls, DJ Louie, Appetite, Motor Funker, Daveed, Lucha DJ, Chuck Daly, and of course, my room mate DJ William McCamie. I never made it behind the decks but I did find my iPOD attched to a mixer the next day. sadly, this weekend also marked the last days of the Waterbug. good time and good waves Lex.

meanwhile, the struggle continues .................

On the 58 front , we are moving ahead with applying for a multiple of zoning variances in order that we no longer operate, wait for it "an illegal art gallery", on a parallel front we are working with city leaders to revise the current entertainment ordinance. and most likely I'll be pleading guilty to possession and distribution of a controlled dangerous substance " live music". To bail us out of this we need to raise about $1,500 to apply for the variance. Join us on JC Fridays for a 58 Benefit with Fancy Colors 9 pm, Little, Big at 8 pm, and Mr Junestar Blackman at 7pm. There is a Suggested Donation of $10. oh my. Afterwards, head uptown for "the Party After" with DJ Neva or head towards The Hamilton Inn to hang with Street Justice    at her Friday Night Gig at the Hamilton Inn . for a Pop Art Post Party from their In Spirited Company exhibit at the Cemetery

Fighting the good fight is this weekend's theme. On Saturday,  Parlay Studios hosts a Record Riot from noon to 8 pm. At Lucky Seven's, Thomas Francis Takes His Chances, Aminal and In Musth rock and help Leonard Smalls celebrate a birthday and raise goods for single mothers support through the York Street Project. JC Sh!thead crew Fights Cancer with a special benefit at the Lamp Post.
