My parents were always avid grillers. From the hottest day in summer to the coldest winter day, only a rainy day could grant me a respite of my mother calling me from work to "set up the grill". Kingsford Briquettes were the brand of choice, same routine every time, following the instructions on the side of the bag ; make a pyramid, add lighter fluid, wait one minute, light. Never failed, at most it faltered and that only game me the opportunity to disobey the instructions on the lighter fluid " Do not pour on open flame !"
Sunday, we have some good grilling going on for a special cause. The Historic Jersey City and Harsimus Cemetery [ the location of last year, and this year's Ghost of Uncle Joe's Halloween Party] i hoping to raise some $50,000 to obtain a matching grant, in addition their running tight on their expenses and are in need of some financial assistance. So we've gathered up 6 bands, 2 lanes of bowling, racks of ribs and cans of beer to have a nice Sunday Cook-out. It's Sunday, so we are starting things early at 3pm. Live Music by Leaf Pile, The Audio Bodies, The Milwaukees, Ladell McLin, Bad Cop [Nashville], and Thomas Francis Takes His Chances all team up for this event. $25 entry with BBQ from Lucky's, $20 without, $5 off admission with two non perishable food items to donate for the St. Matthew's Food Pantry. Can't make it but can donate www.jerseycitycemetery.org
There's live music leading up to this all week. A new doubled down effort has been going on at the Lamp Post, courtesy of Zac Clark and Jen Schwartz of Ghost Train PR on Saturday's and Thursday Knights Candice. Ghost Train is also booking Lucky's Tuesday Nights, a good way to get some shows under your belt.
This Wednesday's Groove on Grove is a Three Round Bout Showcase with Pat Van Dyke, Sylvana Joyce and the Moment, with the Defending Champions, stepping into the ring last.
That's all for now have to make a flyer run. This Internet thing can be misleading. Before I go, please don't forget about Kayt Hester's Caribou at LITM next Tuesday. The artwork is all inspired by the Pixies as will be my play list.
