Hey Den-ziens,

Here’s the programming schedule:

Every night this week on Lazlo’s Den, don’t miss our Wave Gathering preview. Spotlighting some of the over 175 bands playing the festival in Asbury Park this weekend.

And don’t forget about our other shows on

The next Guitar Pull will take place on Sunday July 12th with guests Jim Testa, Rik Mercaldi, and Mick Chorba (Dipsomaniacs/The Successful Failures).


The next Free Concert Series show at Buddie’s Tavern is Friday July 25th. This is a very special show featuring one of the best live touring bands, The Winter Sounds!!!! Their two albums are incredible, and their live show even more so! Also on the bill are two great local acts, Jonathan Andrew, and The Tea & Whiskey.

Pissed Off!

I so want to discuss the closing of The Goldhawk, another great NJ venue for live music, & one that (along with Jim Testa), I used to do ‘Folk You!’ shows at.

I want to talk about that, but I can’t.

You see, I have been seriously following the events going down in Iran.

It’s easy to forget about how lucky we are to have freedom and democracy in this country, and the ability to peaceably protest when we disagree with our government (as many did with the Iraq war).

While the American news channels are finally starting to do some coverage of the events in Iran, BBC News has been doing the best news channel coverage I’ve seen.

But truly compelling, and horrifying, is the first person accounts coming in through the internet, most notably through Twitter.

The link below is a list of all know people Twittering in and around Iran about what is going on.

I urge you to look through some of the tweets people are posting from Iran.

If they don’t make you feel lucky to live in America, then you probably don’t deserve to live in America.


That's all for this week.

Thanks for reading.
