Dancing Liberally - Mutants and Bikinis

Sixty-two years ago this day, the United States conducted the first underwater nuclear test near Bikini Atoll in the South Pacific. Not only was this an important milestone in cultural and environmental destruction, it provided a marketing angle for two-piece women's swim wear and a string of very badly-done Japanese monster movies. Join us at the Cafe Wellstone for DJ Rocky's finest musical offerings and bartender Dick! Cheney's fond memories of his favorite nuclear dreams. And if you're on the mood, dress up in your best beach and/or mutant wear for a chance to win Lindens.

Dancing Liberally - Hardball Politics

On this day in 1804, Vice President Aaron Burr settled political scores with Alexander Hamilton by murdering him in a duel. Modern vice presidents have broadened this practice to include shooting friendly lobbyists in the face.

Tonight we honor the homicidal sociopaths who inhabit the fourth branch of government with a little dancing, discussion, and possible dueling at the Cafe Wellstone. Wear your favorite 19th century duds for a chance to win lindens and join us as DJ Rocky the Yakblaster shoots us some of the finest tunes of any century.

6:00 pm SLT - JueL Resistance
Suzen JueL, a.k.a. JueL Resistance, is a self taught musician who has been performing since she was 13 years old. She has perfected the weaving of her mind's eye and heart's passion into lyrical paintings richly embedded with emotional hues from her personal experiences. Her lyrics feed the listener's soul and stirs the heart and sentiment of any who have been privileged to hear her perform them.

7:00 pm
Peace, Love and Understanding
In 1690, William of Orange defeated James II, and Loyalists have gloated ever since. In 1812, the US invaded Canada, and Canada's gloated ever since. The former is stupid, the latter justified, but we digress! DJ Rocky will be calling for peace as he takes your requests. Dick Cheney will be in the corner gagged by the white flag of surrender.
