Brother Can You Spare Some Time or Disco Double U-Check Tonight

Now that your beach plans have been washed out. You may want to come to terms and embrace your weekend in this shore town. Jersey City is surrounded by water with 7 bridges leading to the mainland, we have a marina, plenty of waterfront property, and used to have a SAND BAR, now it's SURF CITY. Yes my friends you are already at the beach.

Here are some suggestions on burying your asBURY trip.

Want to Dance on the Boardwalk ? Hit Owen Grundy Pier at Exchange Place for Soulful Cypher's House on the Hudson at NOON today  [Just a reminder that next Saturday Aug 9th is the all DJ SIX BEATS UNDER/SILENT DISCO at the Hist JC and Harsimus Cemetery]

Instead of volunteering to clean the grill ? Spend some time volunteering at Art House Productions new digs in Journal Square. They are looking for people who like to party, painting party silly. "Even if you can only lend an hour of help, we need help from our amazing volunteers! Saturday, Aug 2 at 12PM-3:30PM and 5:30PM-9PM at the new location.  Art House Location  136 Magnolia Ave (directly behind the JSQ PATH Station) SHIMEON NANDLAL will be your point of contact. If you have trouble finding us or need to speak with one of us, call him at 201-699-3051 " can't paint ? donate 

Looking for a substitute for your hijinks's at Jenks ? We've got four bands tonight at The Disco Double U-Check [State Farm reference if you are still scratching your head] have a couple of Hip-hop Rap acts on this bill, I think a Lucky's first :). Afterband Dance Party with Dancing Tony and Mat U-Check [The Front Bottoms]

Want that back yard hangout ? DJ William MCCamie is at Port-o Lounge and Reggae Roots band Kiwi plays tonight. Need some good comedy head to WFMU's Ground floor Space for a Monty Hall Night hosted by DJ Pat Byrne with Sideshow/Sundman Neil McAnemy.  (9pm-mid)! Featuring Joe Jack Talcum of The Dead Milkmen, comedian Sean Donnelly, an interview of John Holmstrom from PUNK magazine, and much more! RSVP here. Monty Hall is located at 43 Montgomery St. in Jersey City.

Need a place to Crash Saturday Night ? Go home your bed is still in JC.

Need some beach sporting ? Play Volleyball on Sunday at Morris Canal [end of Washington] nets up at 1:30 pm

Instead of spending an extra 4 hours in traffic coming home. Spend 4 hours with DJ Brode at Luckys Sunday Night Industry Night.

Okay, now that you made it "back". It's National Night Out in Jersey City music and family fun will be at 4 different Parks. I'll be Out at Kayt Hester's Ninety Summers Later at LITM The Opening reception starts at 7 pm.
