All The People You Love on July 2nd

Bogs Visionary Orchestra’s imaginative approach to performance has won them audiences at alternative venues like the Brooklyn Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art. The inclusion of their song Everybody’s Broken on Mews Too: An Asthmatic Kitty Compilation attests to their quirky nature and Indie Folk appeal. Led by the simple arrangements, memorable lyrics and peculiar vocals of artist/performer A. Bogs, BVO’s motto always rings true, “Art is for folks!” Check ‘em out at

Brent Eden McCoy grew up on a dairy farm in Northeastern Vermont. He spent his formative years tending to the cows and running a weed whacker. He then learned to juggle, and despite several years of social isolation and esoteric dorkdom, he has become quite the showman. He's performed at festivals, theaters, airports, laundromats, (okay, not really laundromats) around the world. Whether he's wielding five safety cones, untangling a tape measure, or climbing atop a big orange ball, Brent's humble and charming character will clown his way into your heart. Brent lives in Brooklyn, NY, where practices, paints, and prolongs his childhood. Check out

No, Brooklyn’s Project Jenny, Project Jan has neither a Jenny nor a Jan, but the music of vocalist Jeremy Haines and electronic maestro Sammy Rubin will find you hard pressed to pigeonhole. Project Jenny, Project Jan released their first self-titled EP and offered the mp3s up free-and-legal on their site. The press took notice, calling it a “shockingly dynamic, danceable, and hilarious affair” (Billboard) and “incomparable” (Deli Magazine). Their engaging live show got its well-deserved attention too: “This is a band that should be taken seriously, even while singing about homemade sex tapes and the Chinatown bus.” ( out:

He has appeared on everything from The Howard Stern Show to Kurt Anderson’s Studio 360 on Public Radio International. Greg has a thing for Skaters, Surfers, Cowboys, and Celebrity Chefs. Check out:

Jim McBitchy

New Jersey: News - Former Gov. Jim McGreevey said he's not to blame for poor sales of his estranged wife's book, instead blaming the failure of her book in part to "...her awful appearance on the 'Oprah' show, where she wore an inappropriate and ill fitting ball gown with a plunging neckline." He's sitting at home in the afternoon watching Oprah and ranking on women's clothing? Hey, congratulations Jim McGreevey, you are now officially gay!
