Well it felt like a snazzy cocktail hour on Christmas Day over at Johnny
D's with DJ Razz "spinning" some tunes. And he accompanied it with
a three hour slide show of vintage images...cool shots of families, cars, mid-western
houses, hip party goers, book covers, LP Covers...lots of fun....head over on New
Year's Day (8-Midnight) too!!......
Now coming up .......TT's on the 30th looks interesting with their "Dry Run to NYE" with
a variety of performers through the evening: films, video, spoken word etc.....

Rico Petroleum with Psycho!!
