The North Shore dares you!
Spring 08 events on Staten Island's north shore
This is a reminder for some upcoming events on
the North Shore.
Staten Island is about to stage its first official music event, "Rock
the Harbor." (http://www.rocktheharbor.net
As always, when we hope to stage something cool, the city blogs dwell
in sarcasm, which is fun. I actually enjoy calling my wife bro. And my
father is a son! Check out the rant at: http://gothamist.com/2008/05/29/staten_island_w_1.php
From what I understand, the headliner, the Budos Band is considered
cool even by Brooklyn standards. And the location, Snug Harbor, is a
prime spot by city standards. So there's something to start with.
That same weekend there'll also be tons of arts and readings and stuff
at the St. George Theatre, at the old Fishs Eddies building on Bay
and some other locations. From what I
see there's a whole lot of participants, some real good stuff,
and also, in good old Staten Island tradition, some weird stuff. So
weird actually that I encourage to attend for that reason alone. Check
out the "Art by the Ferry"
And don't forget that we're hosting our COAHSI sponsored musical revue the following weekend on June 21 at the gallery 6.
It's gonna be TaC and the Staten Island Freak Corps in
"The Return of the Great Blue Heron II!" For all additional information and why it's not happening at the
Paramount after all, go to noizart.com or directly to http://northshore.noizart.com/index.php?artikel=321
Oh, and I just received notice that the new gallery SHOW on St. Marks
Place will open its doors for the first time on Friday the 13th at 8pm.
That much for now.

(What is SIFC? Hey, I just came up with that. That's the abbreviation
for the Staten Island Freak Corps. To make pronunciation easier, it
should read: Sifuc!)
