Friday, May 8, 2009, ATRINA, Kimono Draggin' and Eula rock to benefit the Naugatuck Riverfest - 9pm, Polish-American Club, Bridge St, Naugatuck. Then, Saturday, May 9, the action continues at 12PM with The Mountain Movers, Pariah Beat, 30 Bag and more more more!
Unless you moved to Connecticut the day before yesterday, you're well aware of Atrina, Eula, and The Mountain Movers. But Kimono Draggin' are new to me, and wow what a swirl of tweaked Television, Stooges and maybe even a touch of Notekillers. I just ask that all you guys down in southern CT be careful. So much is going on down there, that you risk causing an earthquake that could break Connecticut in half, and the chunk would float into Long Island Sound. It's totally possible based on my pseudo-scientific analysis of the situation.
The NRRG (Naugatuck River Revival Group) is dedicated to the restoration and clean up of the Naugatuck RIver. On May 9th, there will be a canoe and kayak race down the Naugy beginning from behind the old Howard Johnson's in Waterbury and ending in Beacon Falls by the train station. It is time the Naugatuck River was returned back to its natural state. If it is respected, we can also use the river for entertainment, like it was many many years ago before pollution made the waters unsafe to navigate, boat, swim and fish. This is a river race and festival. There will be food, several vendors and live music. Please come and support the Naugtauck River. Also, on May 8th, at the Polish American Club in Naugatuck, there will be a rock show/fundraiser to raise money for the festival. COME ON DOWN! For those who would like to be in the race registration forms are available at CT 4 Outdoors in Watertown, Avid Skateboards in Naugatuck or Vintage Furniture in Naugatuck. T-shirts are also available upon registration or the day of the race.
