Saturday the 14th with Boris Garcia, BuzzUniverse and Tim Carbone

Blairstown , NJ’s historic Blairstown Theater re-opened on Friday, May 13 with a screening of Friday The 13th. It was a fitting way to re-open the theater not only because of the date, but only because Friday The 13th was actually filmed in Blairstown and the theater is featured in its opening scenes. The next night Boris Garcia and BuzzUniverse were the first bands to play the re-polished Blairstown Theater. As previously reported, Tim Carbone was scheduled to join Boris Garcia during its set. The Railroad Earth member also emerged during BuzzUniverse’s set alongside Bud Burroughs for a cover of Marshall Tucker Band’s “This Ol’ Cowboy.”

Boris Garcia will return to New Jersey on June 2 at Teaneck, NJ’s Mexicali Live will BuzzUniverse is off to the Strangecreek Campout for a performance on May 29.

From Council member Kirkwood 1. The seurvy was sent to all in-town PO boxes (at the Post Office), RR1 and RR2, all Riverside addresses. That includes PO boxes people had their curbs.2. Not all of the people were taxpayers who responded.3. I agree that this seurvy has limited value to us now and another one should be done. At the time that seurvy was done we had no idea what anyone thought about these things and the council approved a seurvy to ask some questions. It is a process that should be done periodically because factors change and people’s opinions change. We polled the entire area because we weren’t asking them to approve a bond issue ONLY opinions, and they were anonymous ones, at that. Because some people had boxes in town and the post office had delivery only to routes 1 and 2 to include them, it also included the people in the country. Keep in mind that our customers come from a wider area than just city limits. Citizens may have to foot the bill but they should be aware of who is going to support these things after they are built and up and running.4. 5. 6. These are all conclusions drawn by the reader. I have no way to prove or disprove these conclusions.7. The school was never contacted, not even to fill out a seurvy. They were never asked for support to build anything or for yearly support. I cannot speak for them. If the context here was for a recreation building or pool, it’s something that could be explored. It certainly has been in other communities.
