I'm Not afraid of any Ghost of Uncle Joe's | Looking Spooking Good

I came home from Canada to find that Don Chris from Rolan's [the Keyhole] had left this world. In his honor, this Thursday's THE CICLO: Celebration Commemoration Inspiration will pay tribute to a great man along with some JC Greats. 

Okay. No Hurricanes - No Snow set for this weekend's Ghost of Uncle Joe's Fundraiser this Saturday. Cemetery gates open at 2 pm with a full line up of great music. If you are in need of some costuming, check out Another Man's Treasure Vintage for some throw back styles. If you want to do it on your own, break out your glue gun and see if you can craft something from Instructables. Make it nice, and you and your date may be eating at Thirty Acres restaurant, or catching a performance of 4th Annual YOUR MOVE Dance Festival at Art House Productions on us/them, or go bad ass,  and Jersey City Tattoo will ink forever on you [please refrain from choosing the infinity sign though]

All of the WFMU DJ will be "newbies" for this show with a abbreviated roster of the Hoof and Mouth Slimfonia.  Help them raise money to build a 100 seat performance space. Things start at 2:22 with Elvis Costello and the attraction performing Live at Hollywood High. Then They Live will sound Rancid with Vic Ruggiero  from the Slacker on the Keyboards. Here's the full schedule:
