JULY 12, 2006

This last weekend we had the second Avenue for the Arts Street Market and I have to say it was amazing. There were twice as many vendors as we had at the first market and we also increased the amount of people who visited the Market. It was awesome to see the sidewalks packed with vendors and we are kicking it into gear to get more people down for the August event. Thanks to everyone who came down, I hope you had a great time. Therefore I am looking for feedback, where do you find out information about events you want to attend, where do you pick up flyers, what papers do you read, and where do you look online? Email me suggestions I am curious.

So with that said, here is Word on the Street for July 12, 2006

This Thursday is the 13th, so Portable Cinema is playing “Friday the Thirteenth” at Wilcoxs Park, Located in Eastown, this park is pretty big so you may want to budget in some time for walking to find the spot. Of course it is free, and I think this is the first time I will have seen Friday the Thirteenth, I will be the person cowering with the blanket over my head most of the time, this stuff freaks me out. Bug Spray is a must, leave to booze at home.

Easthills is happening this weekend with A Bastille Day Party on the Friday the 14th, Starts at 4 and runs until 7pm with food and nonalcoholic beverages, there is a cash bar if you want to start happy hour here, but is does cost $25 and all proceeds benefit the East Hills Council of Neighbors. Food by Marie Catribs, ( which has the best blintzes I have ever eaten) and the event is in WEMEAC and Cobblestone ( center of the universe, Lake and Cherry)

On Friday night the ( July 14th) the DAAC is hosting Isseis Love Story, To Once Darkened, Putrid Warrior, and Rogers Met and Iranian. $5 Doors at 8ish.

Saturday night at the Daac The Offbeats are playing with Requiem, and Greyskull, I wonder if they all carry swords, the show is Saturday at 8 pm and it is probably about $5 to get in.

The UICA has what looks to be a great movie this weekend, The Notorious Bettie Page is playing the director created American Psyco and I Shot Andy Warhol, both movies I am not fond of but I do think that Bettie Page is interesting in theory and wouldn’t mind checking out the movie. Anyhow showtimes for this weekend are
7/14 Friday - 3:00, 7:00 PM
7/15 Saturday - 3:00, 7:00 PM
7/16 Sunday - 3:00, 7:00 PM

The Fulton Street Artisan’s Market is every Sunday from 10-4 they are growing in numbers and booths are only $5 which is a great deal for vendors, and of course there are all sorts of great deals for shoppers, lately if the weather is good Jamaican Dave’s has been showing up to provide a lunch option, which is great.

Looking forward, in August there is a show at the Fountain Street Church that is featuring Buddhist relics and there is it is called Maitreya Project's Heartshrine Relic Tour The description is pretty interesting and the stuff will only be on display August 4,5, and 6th so put it on the calendar and I will remind you the week of. maitreyaproject.org. However they are also looking for volunteers for the event if you are interested in volunteering get a hold of Jill Eggers at eggersj@gvsu.edu,

And finally Sunday night at the DAAC is Hostile Takeover,
The 17th marks the submission deadline for “under Cover” an exhibition of Artists books at the UICA, entires must be postmarked by the 17th and the show is up September 8- November 10th. You can download a application form the UICA website. www.uica.org
