Rain and more rain and hot Florida sun is stopping NO ONE I tell ya!  Visit St. Augustine July 20-22 for some crazy bike party action thanks to those Bad Cactus bikers! More info here.  

The fun doesn’t stop there… be back in Jacksonville July 22 and grind your gears to this amazing show… Use rappelling gear to drop into this place like a firestorm! Sneak in your own beers! Use the money you save to buy merch from the touring bands. Dark Castle and Torche have new releases. Remember it’s an early show.  I mean, we don’t want to intrude on dance night – do we?

And finally, the following weekend brings a killer event 3 hours west….

We’ve been a starting point and info center for a few alley-cat races where Tally kids have come over.  A few of those krank-it-up- ers are in bands Environmental Youth Crunch has played with as well. And darn if I’m not all too stoked on the following show with This Bike is a Pipe Bomb!  So mark your calenders! Visit tallycat.org for more information.

Whew. Summer. I love it.

Right-Oh. And here’s the rest of the weekend day by day.

>>  Friday 


So, it seems like everyone is planning on going to the Monster Art Show on Herschel St… you can get a map here.  I am so stoked based on what of the submissions I’ve seen. There will be Creatures from artists such as Mark George, R.Land, Shaun Thurston, and Urban Art Warfare as well as some pieces from artist’s as young as 9yrs old. See you there.  

Also on Friday, is a show at Inertia – 10pm, after the dinner.  You can totally do both and have fun I promise.  Its a nice walk or bike ride from one to the other. The show has two touring bands, Nice and Friendly (myspace) and Life Under a Tree (myspace) and then three of your favorites locals Tuffy, Becky from Peace Trout and Max Wood. 

>> Saturday

First things first – get brunch at Heartworks and look through all the new items at the store.

Shanty Town hosts a show Saturday night for two touring bands. Republicorpse (myspace.com) from Orlando,  FL bring Man in The Bastard/Assuck style grind. They just released a 7″ (pictured) on a new label from Orlando called Deathroll Records (myspace.com).   Dead Radical (myspace.com) hails from Scranton, PA – and play sort of technical thrashy grind. They’ve done a split 7″ with XBrainiaX.  Local band Hallelujah is also playing.

Saturday night also has a show at Yesterdays (corner of Park and Dancy).  I don’t know much about it except that Tuffy and The Yusge are playing along with like 10 other bands, and it’s a benefit to raise money for better sound equipment at Yesterdays.

Also, if you’re in the traveling mood. Orlando is hosting an Alley Kat Bike Race (link), finished off by a set from The Holy Mountain.  I’ve heard it will be one of the Mountain’s last shows.

>> Sunday

And of course Sunday means more Heartworks brunch. Noice!

Then Hip Hop all day!  Bike to this event!

Post Artwalk Posts, New Library Website, Inertia gets Assembled.

May 3, 2007

The digitization of Artwalk is upon us! Joey Marchy of UrbanJacksonville.info has posted a picture of every piece of art from three Artwalk Galleries here.  So now that you know some of what you are missing, don’t miss it again!

New Library SiteAnd speaking of digitization of the physical world, the library has posted a preview of it’s new website here. The new design will go into effect on May 29.  What do you web design people think of this?

Lastly, the good folks at Assemble, a slowly and diligently coming to fruition craft community project and store, asked me some questions about Bizarre Market and Freeschools. Reading the answers can be done here.
