Lafayette Pool Ribbon Cutting

Lafayette/ Morris Canal Area Residents

The Lafayette Pool at Johnston Avenue and Van Horne Street will be opening July 1st with an official ribbon cutting ceremony.  I am told the ceremony is scheduled to begin at 12 noon.

This pool is a direct result of the aggressive efforts of Betty Kearns who help the community designate this site for a water park, the EPA Brownfield’s Pilot Program and Green Acre Funding that required community participation through the Brownfield’s Stakeholders Meetings, the Morris Canal Coalition for advertising & hosting the Stakeholders meetings, you the community that attended and voted for the project and of course, the City of Jersey City. 

Come out to the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and take pride in something good that you made happen!

Convoluted Construct from NYC
Launched in New York City in 2010, Convoluted Construct merges fashion with art and art with fashion. As a brand, we contextualize high-fashion with fine art, generating inspiration from the coexistent synergies that complement both styles of self-expression. That specialization, tenacity and creativity, has amounted to the Limited-Edition, deluxe apparel line as fashion installments:  METAPHORICS

june 29th Groove on Grove

June 29th at Groove on Grove!

6PM/ The Plush Interior
7pm/ These Animals
8pm/ Devi
About the Artists:

The Plush Interior takes the idea of a power duo to a higher level.
Starting off with the mighty groove of Andrew Gordon, adding the multi-textural sound of Vincent Denis and his 8 string guitar, and layering most songs with vocals and harmonies, the band achieves its sonic peak by creating a sound much larger than two players could seemingly produce.
Sharing a similar attitude with octopi and circus jugglers, Vincent and Andrew each cover several parts that converge into an intensely dynamic experience. The Plush Interior although “only” a duo, brings the might of a full ensemble.

New York City indie-pop quartet, These Animals, create a mix of dreamy pop and dance-able rock and roll. The band met while attending art school and began writing together in the early months of 2010. With keen pop sensibilities, their sixties-inspired harmonies sit comfortably on top of shoe-gaze guitar textures and toe-tapping rhythms. Cultivated from influences of friends and the city around them, there is something strangely familiar and reminiscent about These Animals’ music. Perhaps it’s nostalgia for a memory you wish you had.

Devi ("Davey") is an exciting new rock band from Jersey City led by a woman NYC blog Lucid Culture calls "one of the great guitar players of our time." This is "an utterly bad-ass power trio," says Midwest Record, with "a sense of humor, swagger, blistering guitar chops, looks, and the smarts to fuse niche with mass market." Italy's Audiovideofoto magazine adds "something tells us we are witnessing the birth of a rock star."
