It's with great pleasure that I announce the beginning of Safe To Swim Weekend 2 tomorrow brought to you by the Patron Saint of the New England Music Scene - and founder of Sub Rosa Party - Anthony Yacobellis.
And while I may be "follicularly-challenged" in comparison to the cats and kittens on the flyer above (designed by yours truly), I can safely stake my claim in the event as both a vendor and a musician.
This Saturday, Marisa and I will be giving away Needles and Sins swag and slinging t-shirts at the Lapdance Academy Records booth from 1pm on and my stoner-metal band, Dogs of Winter, will be gracing the "Cultural Commission Stage" at 6:50pm. So if you're in Danbury, CT, or the surrounding area, definitely come on by and pose for pictures with us!
Over 35 bands will be gracing the outdoor stages and the subequent "after-parties" from Friday until Sunday, including: my old and dear friends, Earl Greyhound; my collaborators and confidants, Saint Bernadette; the NHL's favorite novelty act, The Zambonis; a frightening version of myself in 10 years, Joe Roberto; and my nominee for "best band name ever," Total Dick.
Admission to the outdoor shows is totally free! Bring a lawn-chair and cooler and prepare to have your face melted.
