IN oRBit: A DOWNTOWN KIND OF YEAR

As the music director for The Downtown, Chris Masi is responsible for wrangling seven nights and two stages worth of live entertainment every week at the Red Bank hotspot.

So it’s understandable that the expanded and reimagined club’s one-year anniversary almost caught him off guard.

Not us. redbankgreen and its sibling site, Red Bank

, have been keeping tabs on the Downtown’s doings, from the first sneak peek inside the work-in-progress building, to regular coverage of the acts that make the place pop — including Arlene’s World Famous Rock and Roll Karaoke Band, who do their Thursday night thing upstairs tonight.

Downstairs at The Downtown, Masi and friends will present “a big ‘ole All Star Jam Session” featuring contributions from many of the performers who’ve found friendly harbor there on the banks of the Navesink.

It’s a one-shot special event, and you’ll read about it only in the pixelated pages of Red Bank

Also in oRBit today: details about the Asbury Park screening of a short film based on a story by 19th-century city resident Stephen Crane, and a pop-in on an exhibit of Mike Bell paintings that will crinkle your Batcape.
