show: Forest Fire Record Release Party at Union Hall

"With Gatling Gun Social Skills"
"...We Dance to the Beat." The first Chocolate Bobka Presents, a record release party for Forest Fire's Survival (finally available on vinyl via Infinite Best Recordings), is sure to be a doozy. In fact, the band has actually ensured that the evening will "have an overall sense of danger in the air," which, to me, sounds like a pretty good thing. Oh yeah, and there will be cookies.

In addition, the nice folks at Union Hall have agreed to let us give away a few pairs of tickets for the event. To enter, simply leave your favorite type of tree in the comments, along with your email address. A winner will be selected on Friday. Hope to see you there.

The Tamarindus Indica, a rare African fruit tree, because you can but it on ebay.

"America's National Tree" -- the Oak. Used for shipbuilding and whiskey distillation.

my flowering baby bonsai... because it is so adorably portable you just want to carry it around in your pocket all day long...

or the cork tree because, well, there's nothing like the sound of the popping of a cork!
