Pre-weekend Weekend Lunch Invite 74. Light 'em If You've Got 'em

Finally ... getting a bit of an early start on this because I was assuming I wouldn't have time on Wednesday. Well as it turns out, we won't be doing anything for Kage's 30th birthday for a while. So here I am, enjoying another pleasant day on the porch, sipping a beer, listening to the wind and the birds. Aah. Now, down to business...

Oh yeah, if I haven't got one already, I'm looking for an ethernet hub with at least one 10Base-T port and one 10Base-2 uplink. You know, basic cheapo. I found a few on the web for under $20, but I figured there's some of you who'd like to unload one in exchange for about that amount of money instead. Someday I'll upgrade. Ha ha.

Tonight's at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) it's The Booda Velvets. They're a band from The City who're coming all the way up here and making quite a stir in the local rags. Freetime Magazine says,

A staple rock quartet in the downtown music scene, The Booda Velvets have been bringing jaded NYC crowds to a frenzied rage with their repertoire of strong "album-oriented" pieces and grabbing pop tunes. They blend lush, distorted guitars, melodic vocals and atmospheric sonics to create their own compelling "voodoo".

In the mean time, Milestones (170 East Ave.) is hosting Freetime Magazine's Most Popular Band Contest with Out of Line versus Blue Beard.

Meanwhile, if you're graced with tickets, The Rally in the Alley will feature Melissa Etheridge with Guster, Edwin McCain, Beth Hart, and Sonia Dada at 6:00 p.m. at Civic Center Plaza (99 Exchange St.)
