Late last night we recieved an e-mail from our friend Aaron Bartley at PUSH.  It was a good reminder of the dance party being held tonight to benefit the Partnership for the Public Good and Massachusettes Avenue Project.  It should be a great time and its only 5 bucks to get in!  We hope to see you there!

This was Aaron’s e-mail.

Dear Friends –

The first Movement Party jumps off tomorrow night (Friday) at 8 PM, and what a party it promises to be. Here’s why you should be there:

1. We’ve got the best DJ’s in Buffalo. If you like real hip-hop music, rooted in the best of the jazz-soul-funk tradition, then Cutler and LoPro are your people. They’ve proven they can get a crowd moving without sacrificing their creativity and originality.

2. You’ll be joining the fight for social justice in our city. The proceeds go to the Partnership for the Public Good–a network of community-based groups working on issues like poverty and the urban environment–as well as Massachusetts Avenue Project, which teaches urban youth about the fruits of urban farming and the beauty of eating local. What better setting than Langston Hughes for a movement party. PPG affiliated groups include Ujima Theater, ReUse, the WNY Homeless Alliance, Buffalo First, PUSH, CEJ and MAP.

3. There will be crumpers and b-boys on the scene to lead the way.

4. There will be a puppet parade led by Buffalo’s creative collective (Kyla Kegler, Pat Cain, Gabe Guttierez) at some point in the night.

5. Russell Pascatore, a leading light on the local poetry scene, will bless us with an ode to the absurdities of late-late capitalism. No better way to respond to the financial crisis than with a prayer by Russell.

6. We will DANCE and Flying Bison will flow.
