At the present time, it looks like the weather gods may be forgiving and will spare us a completely rainy day tomorrow: “A morning shower; otherwise, warmer with clouds giving way to some sun.”

5/2/2008 Bump:

No way you’d forget that this Sunday is the Arts & Music Festival, right?

Weather forecasters are saying there’s a chance for some intermittent showers during this “rain or shine” event.

Do you think that’ll affect outcome? Is that good or bad?

Despite skepticism, went to hear Micky – Now, I’m a Believer!


Strand – that was truly funny. Hate to say it, but sometimes your sarcasm hits home. (What, you can stand to miss seeing Micky Dolenz?)

it’s this sunday? sh1t. i didn’t make any “get the F away from hoboken” plans. hopefully the rain will keep away the hords of hudson county’s best. though all those brooklyn food vendors will still use our city storm drains as their place to dispose of their cooking oil.


Hank Williams III now that would be an incredible show! Saw him at the Highline Ballroom last year, but I don’t think Hoboken is ready for him yet, he’d make St Patty’s day parade look like a church revival!




I’ve seen the Bill Owens Five live several times in Hoboken….. they’re a very solid band. They do some covers, but I’m a big fan of their originals. They would definitely be a good addition the festival lineup.
