Garage Rock DJs Blast Kingston This Thursday

It’s always a plus to come across a cool new Hudson Valley nightspot (or one that’s new to me, at least). This month I was turned on to the Rondout Bay Marina, which is located along the creek that bears its name in the remote Kingston hamlet known as Eddyville. It’s a neat spot, a quirky, family-owned dockside boite with a stage, a large outdoor patio and bar, and a small but colorful cast of local regulars. Call it “Twin Peaks” on the Rondout. Anyway, recently Orange County garage punk DJ Wayne Manor started doing some events there, and I see some real potential for the place to develop into a swell hang. This Thursday, special guest DJ Shotaro (from Tokyo) will join Mr. Manor for the first of two Japan Nights to spin some crazed Far Eastern rock ’n’ roll.

Manor spent several years in Japan—a country that’s notorious for its wild, wonderfully cartoony neo-garage bands—where he befriended many of the acts he releases singles by on his Swamp Fiction record label. Here’s a track by UK band Atomic Suplex, who have a split 7” with Japan’s Theee Bat on Swamp Fiction:

Japan Night with DJs Wayne Manor and Shotaro takes place at the Rondout Bay Marina in Kingston this Thursday, August 28, at 8pm. (Japan Night returns with guest DJ Fumi, from London, on September 4.) The event is free. For more information, call (845) 339-3917 or visit www.roundoutbaymarina.com.
