DJ C freeks out

By DAVID DAY  |  November 27, 2006

And how can a benefit to save Boston’s last roller rink get more desirable? When you get New England’s best DJ team to mix the music. ALL SKATE, the organization founded by LINDSAY CRUDELE, is holding its second skate party at Chez Vous this Wednesday, December 6, and it’s enlisted Rhode Island’s finest: CERTIFIED BANANAS. If you’ve seen their Enormous Room residency kill month after month, the thought of being on wheels to enjoy the duo’s sound has to be irresistible. Circuits attended the first All Skate benefit October 18 and gave it a hearty thumbs up: mirrored walls, colored lights, raffle tickets — what more could you want? Crudele and friends are calling this one “A Winter Wonderland on Wheels” featuring ELI “PAPERBOY” REED, disco overlord JOSEPH COLBOURNE, and of course the Bananas boys. There’s even a food drive: any non-perishable item you bring will be donated to the Boston Food Bank the following day. So bring a can plus $12 (or $10 in advance) and get to the Dorchester-Mattapan line (11 Rhoades Street). Not only will you be helping to save a 75-year-old Boston community institution, but you’ll hear some real current and retro class while you have wheels for feet. For more information, visit
