Michele Carlo’s Fish Out of Agua Release Party

Michele Carlo (Green-Wood Angel 2005-present) would like to invite the entire world (or all who love DTE and ANGELS & ACCORDIANS) to the launch party/signing for her book, FISH OUT OF AGUA: My life on neither side of the (subway) tracks, (Citadel Press)  a memoir about growing up as a freckle-faced redheaded Puerto Rican in an Italian/Irish neighborhood in New York City back when a slice of pizza cost fifty cents. For more info, go to: http://www.michelecarlo.com

Michele is a great Angel and a wonderfully engaging story-teller, even when she’s not in official story-telling mode, so I’m sure her book is great.  Martha just bought a copy so maybe we’ll have a review soon!

Come to the launch parties/signings:
FREE drinks & snacks; including my world-famous Triple X Coquito!
Powerhouse Arena, 37 Main Street, DUMBO, Brooklyn

Hosted by H.R. Britton, with FREE drinks & snacks; including my world-famous Triple X Coquito!
Lower East Side Tenement Museum, 97 Orchard Street, off Delancey Street


Hilarious (if only somewhat-related) Video

On the DTE front:  What of the Night? was great, lots of fun, great audience.  We’ll post some video soon- in the meantime head over to facebook for some pics & such.

But right now, check out this strangely hypnotizing and hilarious video from Nichi Douglas & Political Subversities.

You will never look at this inane subject the same way again.  So what’s the tie-in to the DTE community?  The video was shot & edited by PoliSub member Andrew Butler, who’s our featured artist this month at the Clover Club.

I have to say, the song was even funnier when I saw it live at UCB, so check out PoliSub before its run is over at the PIT.
