The Showcase of Depravity

This is the long hard truth. It goes extra deep.

"Comedy's a dead art form. Now tragedy, that's funny." The Showcase of Depravity showcases... depravity. Wisdom and humor from the perspective of a few disgruntled (& sexy) video store professionals.

love tonic, now death tonic

I know that NONE of you care, but id like to formally announce that my favorite music venue, TONIC, is probably going out of business due to raised rent, robbery and repairs that desperately need to be done that they cant afford. They claim to need about 100,00 dollars in the next few weeks, and since we all know that you couldnt get that unless you said it was for Bush's election campaign, there is probably no way they are going to stay open.
Tonic is (or was) the best venue for independant 'creative and avant garde' music. there was a period of about 6 months where i went there at least once a week for an amazing show each time. It was pretty much through them that i was about to nuture my love of jewish music and got to experience a lot of my favorite bands there, when i didnt think id ever get to see anythign like it anywhere else.
Medeski Martin and Wood began there, doing brilliant all improvised sets there, and have played there a bunch of times since providing me with some of the best show experiences ever.

Now those good times might be over, and even though I hate a few of the staff members there, i love the venue and id be really sad to see it go.

So heres what all you readers have to do:
Go to tonicnyc.com and donate at least 200 dollars each. several times. do it for me, or for your own piece of mind. i know you want to.

*tear*

if any of you have any interest in getting to know this venue and the music it hosts for the brief time before it closes its doors, let me know and ill be glad to bring you with me.
