Title: Album Release Party for The Curk

The neighborhood is primarily residential, with a mix of tenements, apartment blocks, city housing projects, townhouses and renovated rowhouses, and its many retail businesses reflect the ethnic and social diversity of the population.
The western part of Chelsea has become a center of the New York art world, with many art galleries located in both new buildings and rehabilitated warehouses.
Greenwich Village, often referred to in New York as simply "the Village", is a largely residential neighborhood on the west side of Lower Manhattan in New York City. A large majority of the district is home to upper middle class families. Greenwich Village, however, was known in the late 19th to mid 20th centuries as an artists' haven,
the bohemian capital, and the East Coast birthplace of the Beat movement. What provided the initial attractive character of the community eventually contributed to its gentrification and commercialization.

With the chill of the air in the city that never sleeps about, the non-sleeping have opted to do their business in the warmth of the indoors. This makes for a quiet streetscape for the most part. The glow of lights of the buildings of Chelsea show the life that the outdoor scene is currently devoid of and even Golem Studios, a business that does not appear to follow the typical 9 to 5 hours is breathing its movement. A party is going on inside as the first of a pair of albums has made its initial debut to the music scene with some promising pre-orders.

That's interesting…

Jono doesn't follow the typical 9-to-5 either. Fact, the Professor's probably gonna be a little pissed he snuck out after curfew. But whatever. Jono needed some air. Besides, it wasn't like he could get drunk, or smoke dope, or anything like that. So what's the problem?

…OK, there IS that thing about him lighting up Mutant scanners like Christmas trees. But BESIDES THAT! Jono tends to keep to himself anyway, even when he's out.

But tonight, as he passes by the studio, he pauses. What is he doing? Who knows? He just heads for the studio, looking to peek inside, if he can.

As Jono comes near the studio, there's a slight pop of movement as a wild Nick Drago appears! Kind of. It is still dark. In the shadows, he mutters a curse, straightening the red collar that peeks out from his leather jacket before checking to make sure his hair is still pulled back into a pony tail. Yes. He has a calendar, yes he knew the party was happening, and yes, being that he's involved with The Curk's new album, it might be weird for him not to have been there already but demons are not very nice when it comes to scheduling.

Jono blinks at the person he sees appear from the building. And squints. Guy looks familiar. Mind, Jono's eyes are no better than anybody else's, so he can't see very well. Also it's been a while, he might just not remember.

For himself, Jono's pretty normally dressed — for him. It's still chilly, so he's wearing a waist-length leather coat over his black t-shirt. Though the black jeans and black boots don't make him much more easy to see. Or the black wrappings on his face. Though if he can be seen, those wrappings are pretty good at identifying him.

Having paused outside to make sure his attire was straightened, Nick turns his head as he feels like he's being looked at, pausing as he waits for him to come more into view. The musician smirks, "Well, its been a while," he comments, letting a bit of accent pop out, "How's life been treating ya'?"

Oh! Jono remembers that voice. He 'smiles', his eyes narrowing in a friendly way. Has been a while, 'asn' it? he notes. Jono can't really help his accent. He shrugs at the question though. Same as always. How yer been?

Nick chuckles, "I did another movie and two more albums since the last time I saw you. The rest, you'll just have to support your local tabloid for." He gives a bit of a wink, nodding to the recording studio, "You heading to the release party?"

You been busy, Jono notes, with an amused note to his voice. The question gets a tilt of his head. Didn' know there WAS one, actu'lly, he admits. S'pose it wouldn't hurt if I was ter stop in. Pause, and he looks at his attire. Unless it's black tie. I'm not exactly dressed for that sort 'f thing.

Nick holds his arms out, displaying the leather jacket, black jeans, and dress shirt. "It is a release party for an album. Who expects musicians to follow a dress code for that sort of thing?" Lowering one arm, he turns to the glancing to Jono "You'll be fine. Great touch with the black bandages by the way. You still play guitar?"

Jono nods, reassured. You're not wrong, he agrees. As for whether he still plays? Jono nods. On occasion. It's just a hobby, though. Can't have a super-visible mutant going out and getting famous, after all.

Hmm." Nick nods, "Well, if you get back into it professionally anytime soon, it is a good time to be a studio musician. Oh! You like Irish Rock and Folk?"
s?"

A good time, huh? Jono raises an eyebrow. How's that? he inquires. Irish folk music? I do like it, but I don't know much about it, he admits.

With the world merge, there are more solo music acts that have a wider audience pool to entice so some are crossing over to studios that were not part of their original world." Mike explains, "Which means more need for studio musicians to fill the demand." He pauses at the door. "Release party is for The Curk. An Irish Folk Rock band from Gotham City. Coincidentally enough, they're going to be in the market for a guitarist eventually."

Jono listens to this, and his brows raise. He'd heard about it happening, the world thing. But, maybe kind of stupidly, he hadn't really given it much thought. But he seems interested at the mention of the need for guitarists. I wouldn't mind 'elpin' 'em out, he offers. He's not a dick about money, after all.

At the response, Nick grins, "I'll be sure to introduce you to them then." Reaching the top of the steps, Mike reaches over to open the door for the other musician. "After you."

Jono 'smiles', and heads up the steps too. Lookin' forward ter it. And when Nick opens the door, he nods. Thanks, he says, and enters. Though as he does, he looks around, possibly seeming a little nervous…

Jono gets a pat on the back from the other musician, "Alright. Time to network."
