Subject: Having A Wild Weekend!

Hey Kids-
So much going on this weekend I'll spare the preamble and get right down to the real nitty gritty!

Fri. 8/18 Noon-3 The illustrious Todd-O-Phonic Todd fills in for the lovely Monica on WFMU, 91.1 on your FM dial (or for those of you with jobs The weekend starts here!

Fri. 8/18 7 p.m. The resurgent New York Dolls and the fabulous Tralala perform a FREE SHOW at The South Street Seaport Pier 17 in lower Manhattan (probably located between Pier 16 and 18).

Sat. 8/19 7:30 p.m The start of SOUL LEGENDS weekend. For those of you not at The Norton Records BBQ at Magnetic Field, it's another FREE SHOW with the amazing talents of Eddie Floyd and Percy Sledge. A very rare opportunity to see 2 of the greats. This show is part of the 23rd Annual Roots of American Music Festival and takes place in Damrosch Park on the SW Corner of Lincoln Center Plaza (62nd St., near Amsterdam Ave.).

and after that what could be more fitting than...

Sat. 8/19 10 p.m.-4 a.m. Subway Soul Club Check out Phast Phreddie, Ms. K and Todd-O-Phonic Todd spinning great soul and r'n'b 45's into the wee wee hours. Hey everybody, it's Gouster Time!

Sun. 8/20 2 p.m.-7:30 p.m. JellyNYC in conjunction with Dead Flowers and Todd Abramson present the latest in their wonderful installment of Pool Parties. It's another Soul Blast and yes...another FREE SHOW! Dig this line-up: The Fabulous Soul Shakers, The Dansettes, The Mighty Hannibal and Archie Bell! A tremendous confluence of amazing legends and the new breed that is doing a fabulous job of keeping their boss sounds going! And if being able to do the "Tighten Up" isn't good enough, you can also run through the Slip'N'Slide or play Dodgeball! And even the hot dogs are great! Phast Phreddie and Cosmo Baker add to the madness with their platter spinning.
McCarren Park in Williamsburg (entrance on Lorimer between Driggs & Bayard Ave.). Visit if you need more info.

If Gary U.S. Bonds (and The N.Y. Dolls) can have a 7 Day Weekend we can stretch it to 4...

WFMU's Small Change will be on the wheels of steel keeping the party going.
