Last night I saw those crazy waterfalls everyone is talking about. And guess what? They look like waterfalls! I took a fab boat ride around the East River last night with The Fleshtones and the Anabolics and the people who love them. My camera, once again, konked out. This is a snippet shot with my cel phone of some Greenpoint Pride from NYC native sons The Fleshtones, it will give you an idea of the vibe on the boat. I felt priviliged to be there, bravo to former Magnetic Field owner Lee for putting this gig together! The Fleshtones opened up appropriately with "Sea Cruise" by Frankie Ford but in this very brief video are performing that smash Brooklyn hit "Greenpoint U.S.A"!
You GO Peter Zaremba!!!
Here are those crazy waterfalls. Soundtrack by the Hollies. I found the night sort of surreal. Between the motion of the boat, the scenery and the music, it was like an acid trip (or maybe my beer was dosed!).
Apologies for the erratic film style but that boat was rockin' in more ways then one, so much that my escort K could not board the boat!!! She deserted me at the dock! But I was OK, falling on people makes starting up a conversation just SO much easier!
P.S.- F.I.B. has bust out of Brooklyn and has gone NATIONAL! It is today's Google's Blog of Note!!!! (and I don't even have google ads, go figure!)
