Jersey City Independent Story [to donate directly]

[post resureditted from last year]

Although there won't be a quiz, I wanted to make sure you zombies and ghouls are all experts on this Saturday's Fundraiser.

First FAQ

Q:   I heard it's going to be cold and rainy and may even snow on Saturday will the event still occur ?

A: Of course not silly, cold and rain don't make fun parties. The Rain Date for the Cemetery portion of the party with will be SUNDAY OCTOBER 30 at 3:30/4:00 PM. THE AFTER LIFE PARTY AT THE LAMP POST WILL HAPPEN REGARDLESS OF THE WEATHER. But come early as we may throw an extra band or two on the bill.

We will make a call on the event on Friday Evening, or early Saturday Morning . Check for the latest updates. 

+++ Please be respectful of the cemetery grounds and those persons in attendance in spirit +++++DO NOT Smoke around the graveyard. Smoke in the driveway area only and DO NOT LITTER
DO NOT Lean on, sit on, play on the Gravestone. Most of them are older than you.
BE CAREFUL walking the grounds of  the cemetery. The walkways are old and some of the ground has settled. DO NOT - DO NOT go into any restricted areas as there are dangerous and most likely have poison ivy as well.

New Movement Takes over Jersey City

Hey Occupationists ! Don't worry Journal Square is still yours. But we wanted to invite artists and those interested in live model drawing for the debut of the Downtown Figure Movement tonight at 58 hosted by Joe Velez. First pose is at 7:30. Details below :

The Downtown Figure Movement is an inclusive weekly figure drawing/painting/whatever session (non-toxic materials only and no photography). It will take place in the heart of Jersey City's art community, The 58 Gallery, and will be hosted by Joe Velez.   All, and we mean ALL, skill levels are welcomed to join. It's going to be a light, fun and casual atmosphere. All you need to bring are your supplies, your smiles and $10!  Each session is 3 hours and will consist of:  5 - 2 minute poses,  4 - 5 minute poses,  3 - 10 minute poses ,  1 - 30 minute pose,  1 - 90 minute pose. 

Join The Downtown Figure Movement and create amongst some of the most notable Artists in the area!

The rest of the weekend look good to me, especially since it doesn't require me booking, banding, djing, etc.  It's nice to be a guest, sometimes.

This weekend is the debut of the Golden Door Film Festival here in Jersey City : Thurs through Sunday [check link]

Friday and Saturday : Art in Motion a combination of words, dance and music happens at Downtown Live.

Roland Ramos,  who is renting out space to artists on the third floor of the Monroe Center in Hoboken, has again put together another great assemblage of artists for this Years Digable Arts Festival this Saturday and Sunday [check blog link]
