We Heart Jonathan Toubin

post image

A great site appeared yesterday, IHeartJT.com, that provides information and lists events that raise funds for Jonathan Toubin to help the amazing troubadour of the Soul Clap Dance party after the tragic and befuddling accident that befell him. It’s more important than us here listing upcoming fundraiser shows happening across the country, to direct you to that site, as well as mention that direction donations are accepted via PayPal to ihearttoubin [at] gmail.com.

Talking With RINSED: One Year of Raining Blood, Debauchery

post image

Tomorrow night sometime between 9-11PM the darkness will truly settle, the kids will scream out something blood curdling and the open bar vodka will be chugged. It will be time to get rinsed, nay, RINSED in the back room of Public Assembly with Blacky II and Dan Wender delivering all that moves you, A.Pop with the aesthetics and Professor Mims at the door and on the floor.

This is also a special occasion, it’s the one year anniversary, one year ago Blacky and Dan got together and threw their chips into the rotating roulette of nightlife building something abashedly fun, illicit, open and dangerous like Odysseus partying with the Sirens instead of keeping himself all tied up. As had happened in the past (one wonderful memory is Beacon performing an amazing live set at the party) there will be special guests, this night it will be Braille (Hotflush label), who already sound like a wonderful fit in my headphones.

We’ve had a chat with Blacky II, Dan Wender aka Carly and A.Pop about the past year, all that blood, all who bleed, 2012 and the future.
