On Scene: Notes from around town

The dance floor at the Western BBQ was packed with children participating in the Spoon Hanging Contest Sunday night.

Local Brigade’s first night out

The odds were against Nick Marzano and I for hosting a three-piece-of-clothing Local Brigade event Friday night.

“February came back for a May visit, we were not on the main strip and it was the heart of mud season,” Marzano said. “But with that, we still had a great number of people turn out and get down.”

With two awesome deejays – DJ School Graduate and DJ vonFunk – I couldn’t keep my feet off the dance floor, or the game of Twister. For anyone who missed the inaugural Local Brigade event, here’s what you missed:

“We had a DJ in a tux, a guy in a bathrobe and a few coveralls in effect in addition to less printable things,” Marzano said. “If you didn’t know we were there (Amante), you weren’t there.”

Luckily we set up a myspace.com page for those who want to keep in the loop for the next exciting event, which you can find on http://www.myspace.com/localbrigade.

The idea behind the Local Brigade is to create a local entity in which to have ruthless fun in a clever and covert sort of way. Each event will have a theme and a few surprises, including the location of the event that will not be known until the day of.

Thank you to everyone who came out on a cold and rainy Friday night to the other side of town, and especially those of you – you know who you are – who wore three pieces of clothing or less.

“All I wanted for my birthday was for that first event to go off well,” Marzano said. “Despite the weather, I got my wish.”
