lasers and sitars

The last month of 2004 launched an array of events that only escalated into the following year.  Frisky kicked things off with their residents and the Simply Soul Syndicate, while Wicked Fridays kept pace across town, and Chris provided a look inside the NYC rave scene.  That Saturday, the weekly at Grand Emporium tried to keep pace, but was no match for DJ P at Kabal. Thing started off simple enough with an appearance by DJ Imperial  at Jilly's, and a live set by Swayzak out in Lawrence, while a few friends and I wandered down to The Point with Dave Brock for a special surprise appearance there. He was in town to headline our show the following night, the 3rd anniversary party, along with Xplicit.  Both kept the floor groovin all night long, and made for a solid night of food, fun, and phabulous partying.   Invited down to a Christmas party for  local promotional firm, I dropped by there, before heading over to Kabal for a party by another local rag

mark tonelli quartet at festa italiana 2018

We had never actually been to Festa Italiana at Zona Rosa, and really did not stay for much of it on this occasion.  The incredible heat played a determining factor.  However, we made time for the Mark Tonelli Quartet, and enjoyed some great Italian food trucks like Garozzo's and Johnny's Italian Steakhouse, among others. It was a good evening for food, drinks and jazz.  Surprisingly, this is the only shot taken while there.  We caught the last of the prior act, and only stayed through the beginning of the following.  The situation definitely bears closer investigation next time.
