We believe this is just another attempt to gentrify Venice and criminalize
poor, homeless and nomadic artists. Why do people move to Venice and
try to stamp out it's funky bohemian lifestyles? We saw the play (Rent), the opera(La Boheme),
the movie(Feeding The Sparrows). It is the universal drama or acquisitive greed vs creative expression.
But it is really disheartening to see Bill Rosendahl supporting this.
Wasn't September amazing. Started with that Labor Day party at Linda Goodmans , First Friday at Robin's, Jazz Funk Fest, VCHC's Venice World Music Festival, Equinox Party at Beyond Baroque, topped off with the Abbot Kinney Fest, where VAC shared a table with Beyond Baroque and the Venice Art Walls! But we are still not partied out.
It's First Friday Tonite on Abbot Kinney. Walk, don't drive over.
Support your local independent businesses, or else the corporate logos will take over.
Weather permitting I will be at Robin's Sculpture Garden playing Jazz with Sam Clay and Fred Ginns
from about 6:30 PM to 10PM. Donna Janosovik and Tommy SanteeClaus too!
Come to Firefly this Friday, October 5th from 6-10pm.
