Pierson's Thursday (and Friday!) Spinning Gigs

Looks like Pat Pierson's sphere of influence continues to expand, at least a bit. Not only will he hold court in the back room at Passaic's Loop Lounge, but he's found a cozy place called The Iron Monkey in Jersey City that appears to hold a bit of promise...
When Dan Roorda (of famed New Brunswick punk band Buzzkill) said he was managing the Iron Monkey and asked if I wanted to DJ, I said sure, but hesitated a little only because I've never been to Jersey City... That is, unless someone drove me through while I was sleeping.

When I finally stopped by to see the place I was amazed to see a bunch of familiar faces and a cool place to have a beer. One was a bartender who once worked at The Roxy in New Brunswick (Reggie) and the other was one who once bartended at The Goldhawk in Hoboken (Amber). And there was Mark from The Court Tavern bartending up on the rooftop (which may or may not be open this weekend depending on the weather).

So needless to say, this place passed the smell test with flying colors. And I know a bunch of people who have spoke highly of it before. For now this is a one-off until something is hashed out with my schedule. But the main thing is that good music will be played and you're guaranteed some very cool bartenders to boot.
So: ya free Friday? Why not head over and make Pat a hit?

Please Look At Our Advertisers (Or The Website Gets It)
Congratulations, you've found the hidden text.
Welcome to, also available at and Here's where the remaining listeners of several fine radio stations have retreated, regrouped, and built a replacement strong enough to stand on its own. It builds on the independent legacy of New Jersey's FM106.3, New York's WPIX and WLIR, Oklahoma's 105.3 The Spy, the pre-buyout mindset of KROQ, WBCN and WHFS and of every other alternative station that was destroyed at a moment's notice - not because they weren't making money, but because there was bigger money to be found elsewhere.
We've stood by as truly independent alternative rock radio died. Sure, something called "alternative" took its place, but we know for sure that anything that "tests well" with soccer moms just ain't alternative. (Even if some of us happen to be soccer moms.) So we've taken matters into our own hands.
This really is independent alternative rock radio, visible here at and audible at our web radio station. It has the classic music that fired our passions back in the day - or that we maybe only heard about from our elders - but it's mostly made of the new music that does precisely the same for us now. We're paying attention to scenes all over the world, watching the energy build, and waiting to see what it creates. Wherever it happens, we'll make sure you can hear about it here. We've been slowly building all this since 2001, and now that you've noticed us, we're glad you're here.
Of course, it's only here because you want it to be here, and it can only stay if you help it along - especially by checking out our advertisers (they support us) and by listening (the more that listen, the more visible we are.) Please use the "feedback" link above to let us know whether it works for you, and what you want it to be as the future unfolds. (And if you need help hearing it, let us know that, too.)
