The official after-party for the infamous parade is back at Childs on the boardwalk and better than ever!

Caught a three piece rock band there playing a soundcheck earlier in the day (3pm ish)... guitar, bass, and drums. Very cinematic, instrumental stuff a la mogwai, big sleep, etc. Sounded interesting.

The guy in the second-to-last picture has bigger boobs than most of the women (does that raise the tone after all the FIRST stuff?)

re: what was Rev Billy protesting?
Replacing Astroland with Niketown (seriously, a Nike super store). The city wants to downsize the zoned amusement area to 9 acres just along the boardwalk. Basically a third of the Cyclone's length.
