Friends, thought you’d like to know, RAYA BRASS BAND is playing for the RoxanneLola MovementMachine Spring Fundraiser Saturday night in Greenpoint and for a suggested donation of $20/no one turned away for lack of funds you can dance to the likes of us and watch a premiere of RoxanneLola’s Surrounded and drink all you want. In a convent. That’s a pretty good deal for NY these days considering the state of things.

And speaking of FREE, there’s a party tonight with live music on Mia’s roof at 170 Tillary St and it’s FREE. Mia’s roof is on the 8th floor and the view is amazing and the weather’s going to be nice, so you should come and did I mention it’s FREE? Of course, the tip bucket will be passed around, so please contribute what you can. Bring who you want and what you want. It’s a beeeeg roof.

“Meschiya Lake rocks back on her heels, lifts her chest, and opens her throat like an air-raid siren to croon in a thrilling, pre-microphone style that is easily audible above the band—no small feat. Lake can make you feel by turns as though you were shivering around a campfire in a railroad yard or drinking in a Budapest night club in 1938.”
And what else? Well, personally, I’m looking forward to Bicycle Fetish Day sponsored by City Reliquary tomorrow over in Williamsburg – http://bit.ly/c6PR06 – and the Toy Theater fundraiser is happening tonight, too, with Debo Band, Hungry March Band, Slavic Soul Party and others – http://bit.ly/bB2Hpv
See yous around town,
