2 Upcoming Events:

DJ Godfather & Nano 2 Hype, 2 well-known Michigan Hip Hop / Ghetto Tech / Booty House DJs will be joining together for a set at the Galewood Tavern on Dec. 28th.

They will be opened by local DJs Frank Frizzil, Chris Roxx, and DJ Krazy.. unless things have changed with the cancellation of the weekly Thursday night thing. I'll have to check into that.

9PM - 2AM Dec. 28th

The Galewood

1978 Godfrey

Wyoming, MI 49509

The other event, I'll be spinning out at ULX on January 13th. Each party I spin gains more and more interest than the first.. I'm experiencing a snowball effect here which has yet to show any signs of slowing down. =D At this venue I will be utilising a 20 foor projection screen.

I've yet to hear of any large upcoming events, sadly, so aside from these 2 events, the coming month sounds like it will be a bit slow in the local electronica scene.

Vacation time! Rather than go sit on the highways, I'll be in town and hanging around until Jan 2 (back to work). Anyone wanting to meet for coffee and discussion, please PM me. I am likely to be dropping by Four Friends and Olive Express on any weekday that they are open (starting tomorrrow).

The Wyoming Park Theater Company Proudly Presents...

"It's most ambitious project ever." - The Grand Rapids Press (boo for only 14-day archives)

post-8564-1170762181_thumb.jpg

WHAT: Presenting Andrew Lloyd Webber's timeless classic hit-Broadway musical CATS. The Wyoming Park Theater Company is among the very first few high schools in the nation to stage CATS, and the first ever in the state of Michigan. Join the Wyoming community and experience Webber's extraordinary music set to T.S. Eliot's famous Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats.

The Wyoming Park Theater Company is known for staging extravagant productions. Last season's A Christmas Carol production was a huge success, and theater director Jeremy Schnotala is excited to pick up the rights for this unique musical.

WHERE: The Dan Heitzleman Fine Arts Center at Wyoming Park High School, 2125 Wrenwood Ave., Wyoming, MI 49509

HOW MUCH: $8 per person (considering it's a Broadway-class commercial, that's a very nice price). Tickets are available at the auditorium box office on show nights or by calling (616) 530-7560 ext. 2349.

WHEN: March 7, 8, 9, & 10 - 7:00pm-10pm

I saw Sam Cummings and the Fulton/Division lot on the news this morning, but I was listening to something on my iPod (I was at the Y). Anyone know what the story was?

GRNow always keeps a pretty comprehensive lists of upcoming events with links.

http://events.grnow.com/events/

The Meijer Gardens has the Butterflies are Blooming, which we're probably going to do this weekend. They also have the work of Patrick Dougherty going on right now. It's supposed to warm up a bit this weekend (no not Florida warm), but you might be able to get out into the gardens and stroll around.
