3.2.1. Dodgeball ! 17 years since my last blog post

Really not that long, but it has been 17 years since the Cicadas last emerged from their sex deprived hibernation. This Saturday, we celebrate their return with new works by Kayt Hester at Port-O Lounge. Opening starts at 9 pm. I've got the DJ reins after 10 pm..

Earlier on that Saturday, the JC Olympics continues with sports 3 and 4 of the Sex-Tathalon with Dodgeball and Shuffleboard at noon. We'll be at the Skate Park at Enus Jones Field [Pavonia and Brunswick St.'s] at noon setting up. First games are at 1 pm. So far we've raised about $300 for the JC Recreation Foundation. Sadly,  WE would have raised more money, but the Mayor beats us at the Belmar Chase 5K  two weeks ago, plus a bunch of us we're drinking at that time and unable to participate.

On Sunday, a fundraiser that is guaranteed to get you soaked  takes place at the Boys and Girls club on Sunday Aug 25th. Apparently, not since Hurricane Sandy will so much water be rained on our citizens. The event is a BYOB [balloon] affair benefiting the Boys and Girls Clubs of Jersey City. Don't worry about running out of ammo, JC Municipal registration for the event is here

I'm DJing tonight Thursday for Ladies Night at Lucky 7's. DJ William McCamie is up at Sanai's on Summit Ave. On Saturday Night,  Motor Funker Radio spins and Monday....Metal Madess with DJ Moranis is on the decks both at Lucky's .

Groove on Grove is finishing up our final two showcases starting with our Back to School Special Showcase on August 28th with JC Young and Emerging Artist taking the stage this Wednesday at 5pm. Then we'll close things off with our JC Fridays Finale with Bryan Benninghove's Hangmen, Kiwi, The One and Nines, and Rebeca Vallejo. JC Fridays will also mark the return of art at 58 Coles Street with Quadrivium by Maurizio Zuluga. A full listing of JC Fridays events is here.

On Saturday September 7th, we'll be hosting an all DJ fundraiser for the Historic JC and Harsimus Cemetery. This Private event requires you to RSVP and buy tickets in advance. You can do so by paypaling a $10 donation or an VIP $25 donation to the cemetery here. Make sure in the special notes section you list your name or names for each entry.
