“On the death of a friend, we should consider that the fates through confidence have devolved on us the task of a double living, that we have henceforth to fulfill the promise of our friend's life also, in our own, to the world.”
On the physical birthday of Joe Birdsong, Howl Happening Gallery has kindly donated their space for the event. The gallery is located at 6 East 1st Street between Bowery and Second Avenue, in Manhattan. Light libations will be available. Pat Ivers' and Emily Armstrong's exhibit 'Alone At Last' is also up and available for viewing. There will be several magickal ceremonies performed in memory of Joe, as well as a mic for those who wish to share a few words about him.
