To The Bangs Avenue Office

So I am waking up in Jersey City, in the Heights, and I've got my little makeshift office together in this house with three dogs running around that try, every now and again, to get my attention. There are someone else's boxes all over the house, unpacked, and it's a bit of an annoying clutter. It's a bit to deal with, but the computer room works and I have a car for the week. Shazam!

This is a big week, I've realized. Not only is Asbury Blues opening this week (barring any more unforeseen township issues) but it is also the week that Indie Solutions has gotten the keys to its new space on Bangs Avenue in AP. This is the week that I start moving things in: music gear, instruments, boxes of papers, music memorabilia, etc. This is when I start coming up with my schedule of when that office is actually open, who else is getting the keys and what I'll actually be doing in there!

No, I'm kidding. The purposes of this space are clear. Indie Solutions, a consulting and assistance company, needs a home, and what better than the same building that used to host the El Lobo Negro Art Gallery. Those Jersey shore denizens, and even those from beyond, that remember it will know what kind of a visionary, yet down-home community it fostered, and the amazing movement that IT actually was able to get under way; the same movement we see on the streets and in the bars and rehearsal studios, on the walls and in the hearts of people hovering in and around the City of Asbury Park. I am honored to be sharing that legacy and can only hope that I live up to it.

I'll be making serious appointments for consultations, most likely after I return from the road in mid/late February. Otherwise, it'll be pretty off-the-cuff and casual. Of course, any good "War Room" needs to be put together right, furnished right, equipped properly, etc., so I know I can't just rush into it.

Anyway, I look forward to this exciting transition and I know this week will be a satisfying one.
