Bon Jour from Canada my friends, with an almost economic doom facing America, I've hitched a ride with The Front Bottoms for my first stint as a merch girl/ sound guy. During my conditional absence, I have left Running Fun to Neil McAneny, Ladies Night [this Thursday] to Steff Kautzmann aka DJ Street Justice. and what's left of the Dancing Tony Empire, more specifically this Saturday Night's Danceteria at Lucky 7's to DJ's Glitterous & Glamourous. In the meantime, I'll be enjoying free healthcare, along with Hockey and Poutine here in Canada.
If things do work out for the good old USA, we'll be coming back through Rochester, NY on Saturday Night, then continuing back to Jersey City on Sunday. Just in time for this year's Ghost of Uncle Joe's Halloween Fundraiser at the Historic JC and Harsimus Cemetery on Saturday October 26th. Here's the killer line-up for this year :
