by Alice Magdziak • April 7, 2017 • EventsComments (0)1263

We’ve been hearing from more and more friends and readers that they’d like to know where we’re going each week so they can join us.  We get invited to events, hear about fun exhibits and are interested in lots of different places all the time.  Here’s what is on our radar this week. We can’t guarantee that we’ll go to all these places but there’s a good chance we’ll be at some of them.  Support local arts or get outside and do something with us!

HANSIL’S in Oakland, NJ (your favorite woodland-Caribbean bar!)  7pm / free entry

A BIRD – synth pop elopes with rock ‘n roll, swagger ensues; only one bird per set — JETT BRANDO – half solo/half joined by drummer & bassist for noisy garage-gaze — QUALITY LIVING – reformed indie/emo kids seek warm and fuzzy feelings — RUBY BONES – hook-slinging, ass-kicking folk punks get drunk, forget to turn off distortion, probably invite sax player on stage. The days are finally longer once again. Let us rejoice.
