Wine and Song: Songwriting Showcase at Pet Shop
After getting your fill with delicious ramen and sake, keep the night’s festivities going at Pet Shop JC with their Wine and Song: Songwriting Showcase! From 8:00 pm to 11:00 pm, you’ll be able to hear original songs and covers from some very talented artists.
Here’s a note from the host of the event: “A message from your host Brendan Hartnett: In the cozy little wine bar in the basement of Pet Shop in Jersey City, I plan on having you original songsters get up and do two original songs, and a cover song of your choosing that has personal value to you, and isn’t purely a crowd pleaser. To test and showcase your songwriting capabilities, there will also be a writing prompt each month (a theme, a subject, an idea, etc) that you can choose to write a song for if you like (not mandatory, but encouraged). THIS IS NOT AN OPEN MIC. In order to be on the list of performers you have to RSVP so to speak, and let me know you want to play. It’ll be on a first come, first serve basis.”

WORD Presents Kate Gavino for Sanpaku
What’s more relatable and universal than teen insecurities? We all went through that awkward phase when we thought the world was against us and vice versa. WORD is hosting an event featuring Kate Gavino for Sanpaku. As per WORD:
“Join us for the launch of this ambitious OGN from Kate Gavino that gives voice to the insecurities that haunt teens of all cultures. Sanpaku tells the story of Marcine, a woman fascinated with the Japanese idea of Sanpaku—that seeing the white around the iris of your eyes is a bad omen. But it’s everywhere Marcine looks—her grandmother has it, some classmates at Catholic school have it, JFK had it… Even Marcine might suffer from this odd condition. Eating a strict macrobiotic diet and meditating is supposed to help, but no matter how much Marcine wants it to, it can’t save her grandmother’s life or make her days at school any easier. Sanpaku deftly explores this Japanese theory through Gavino’s own Catholic, Filipino background and weaves a powerful coming-of-age story about challenging the world around you, no matter your age, to find your true self.”
Friday, August 31st at 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm. Tickets are available at: www.wordbookstores.com
