If you go to that Jalopy website, the additional info is not at all obvious. You have to click for "Classes" (the A in JALOPY), then there's a sort of blackboard on which you have to click the line for Workshops. There actually is additional info, there.

But otherwise, it just appears from their more accessible calendar that the place is Closed this weekend.
Hello everyone,

Yes I am quite busy even while on winter break. Thanks, Brian, for posting the information. You have to click on the link that says "Upcoming Shows" (http://www.jalopy.biz/performance.php) in order to find more specific information about the event. If anyone is going to be in Brooklyn over the weekend, it'd be great to see you.

Talk to you soon,
