Another great weekend is over. I kept myself pretty busy. Pooh on everybody who backed out last minute or couldn’t join in the festivities.
It all started Friday night. Casey and myself headed into New York City in the afternoon and popped in on my old roomate, carmine. He was hosting Jalsah NYC, a musical middle-eastern style open-jam night featuring musicians, singers and dancers. Now, I’m not a musician, nor a singer, and definitely not a dancer, but we popped in to see Carmine and show support for his event. It was actually a lot of fun. Carmine’s involvement in the middle-eastern music and dance community has really opened my eyes to the musical styles which in my past I was very closed to and turned off by. Some of it is really interesting, and entertaining.
After the Jalsah, we headed across the city to Rocky Horror! I posted a few weeks ago that I wanted to go so we finally set a date and got to catch the show. There was a lack of audience particip….ation (grin) at this one, seemingly due to the audience being made up of mostly virgins, but as usual, we had a great time and the NYC cast always makes the show an event to remember.
Last night, on kind of an impulse, I decided to step back about 10 or 15 years. Back in the day I used to frequent various clubs/bars with my friends. I would go to hang out, drink, socialize and people watch and last night was no different. Granted, I was a bit tired, and didn’t plan on staying long, but did wind up staying until about 2AM or so. The DJ was spinning a mix of New Wave, EBM, Synth-pop, Darkwave, Electro-rock, PostPunk and electroclash all night long. They have a fire-pit out back and one guy brought out a few bags of marshmallows! (Mallows! Mallows! Mallows!) It was a total blast from my past. I may try to gather up some of the old crew and make this a more frequent event.
Well, I’m back at work now. lol. fun is over. next weekend is going to be a busy one also. Lots going on.
