Event: Bike Dirty for a good cause.

If you're in Boston this Sunday evening stop by the Middlesex Lounge for Openly Biking Dirty 2009! The event is in support of The Jimmy Fund and the Pan Mass Challenge. our friend Chandler, is riding the PMC for the third year in a row. Over the past few years, Chandler and his team are excellent folks, friends of ours and definitely in need of your support to make this year's ride even better than last!

Sunday night
will consist of socializing, dancing and roller-racing – a little bit of something for everyone, bike or no bike! If you are not familiar with roller-racing, its pretty simple: head-to-head stationary bike races, 300m in distance, the speed and time are projected for the crowd to see – a great spectator sport and a good way to settle disputes with friends. The 300m seems to be the right distance for everyone, whether you race weekly or have ridden to work once in the past few years. Our good friends over at OPEN Bicycle will be providing bicycles to race with so just bring your game face and checkbook!

Event: Pictures from the Glow! July Edition

...And for all you Facebook Stalkers, Become a Fan of The Glow: Here!

Music: Holy Ghost! Comes Back!

Thinking back...Our first proper music review/rant on this blog came a couple years ago when these duo of New Yorkers released "Hold On" on DFA. Around the same time they played at the AKult Disco here in Boston's own Goodlife Bar. It was a packed house and quite a memorable one for me because it was the same day of the Dondi White Sneaker Release at Bodega. But to be honest the best memory of that night was the morning after, waking up in Chinatown to a massive New England Snow Storm. But let's talk music, and in this case Video. Like it wasn't enough that we love Holy Ghost! in this blog, the little bastards go right ahead all Tarantino-Style (frame by frame) and re-make New Order's Classic "Confusion" Video. Shit...even Arthur Baker makes a freaking Cameo. What Can I say, the kids know what they are doing and they are doing it right. Pleasantly enough too was the Cameo by Nancy Whang. Good Video...Good song...Good Day. Go Check the whole story on this song here!
