Hey all thanks to everyone who came out to my birthday and/or the Any Day Parade Reunion show. Thanks to Carol for awesome decorations, Autumn, Ross, and Orlando for bar tendering, and Joey and Jay for cleaning up.
As for 58 my friends, I'll be taking off some time from putting on shows at 58 so I can focus on hopefully making some history with my kids, Thomas Francis Takes His Chances. I've been trying to hard pull off to many things at once at need to re-focus. If your band is interested inperforming at 58 you can contact orlando directly at orlando(at)fifty8.com. Or call Jon Besante at 201-420-0202. Thanks to 58 for allowing me to put these shows on and getting my rep.
The kickball finals originally scheduled for this Saturday have been moved to Sunday. I did this to ensure that teams White Star and Lucky Sevens, who players have a big stake in fantasy football would be ineligible to play. It worked and both more athletically enhanced teams have dropped out ! Regardless though, both teams kept with their donations for the Learning Community Charter School. Sunday's games are still going forward, First Game at 1 pm but instead of battling it out for some superficial glory that causes most of you to behave like d0uchbag5, we will just play for fun. Everyone is invited to play some good old fashion Recess Time Kickball this Sunday. $10 donations will be greatly accepted. Just down the Street on Sunday will be the Lot Clean Up for 4th Street. That starts at 11am and there's refreshments for weed pullers. Tell Mr. and Mrs. Crabtree to Stay at home !
Sunday is also the Going into Business Sale for the Jersey City Artists Workshop, another Thomas John Carlson | Jersey City Art School product. Additionally Artists looking for Art Space will soon be able to rent space in the 1 McWilliams Building [Art House Productions], Just as well Roland Ramos has also secured a floor at the Monroe Center in Hoboken. Here's a link to the 6th Boro Artists Village.
Going backwards, Saturday is the Second Annual Hamilton Park BBQ. I've lined up 4 Country | Americana Acts for this event, with The Ashes [1pm] The Porchistas [2:15], Jeremy Wallace Trio [3:30], Ace Case and the Crosstown Country All-Stars [4:45] and Luaren Shub [Jazz Vocalist - 6:00]. Plenty of good foods and beverages. Later on Saturday check out Marty O'Kane [Jody Porter and the Black Swans, x-April Smith] at Maxwells.
Friday Night is a fundraiser for the Make Your Move dance project at Art House Productions. Live music by Sylvanna Joyce and the Moment and PHWK and DJ Purple Stuff.
