Geneva's downtown continues to gain momentum with the announcement of a jewelry-store tenant for the high-profile corner of State Street and Third Street. A sign of the times is visible in the storefront at the northwest corner of State and Third, announcing that Perlman Fine Jewelry will be the new tenant. Bob Erday of Erday's Clothier confirmed Wednesday that the new tenant for that part of the Erday Building would be moving in after the first of the year. Perlman Fine Jewelry is presently located in the Geneva Commons, 1610 Commons Drive. Erday said the move is a win-win-win. "We're glad to have them as a tenant," he said. "It should be good for them, good for us and good for the downtown." The space at the corner of State and Third …

Kiss the Sky's last Day in Geneva is June 30. First day in Batavia is July 3.
When Kiss the Sky moved to Geneva's high-profile corner of State and Third, it was hailed as a coup for the city. Now Batavia has bragging rights for the record store that's considered a destination for vinyl afficionados. The store's last day in Geneva is June 30. It opens on July 3 at its new location in Batavia, at 180 W. First St. "Although the move is somewhat bittersweet, we're looking forward to venturing out into new territories, while heading back to where it all began, so to speak," an e-mail press release said Friday. "Our stay in Geneva has been wonderful. The city officials have been fantastic, and the residents have been very supportive. Thank you, Geneva, for taking us into your town and making us feel right at home."

From Kiss the Sky to the Paul Ruby Foundation, the "Made in Aurora" album has a bunch of Geneva links and is a great holiday gift.
So it’s time for me once again to tell you about something cool I’m involved with. You may remember earlier this year, I talked about a local music compilation called Made in Aurora. Well, it’s back—the second volume is subtitled City of Lights, and it’s a two-record Christmas album, with a CD enclosed. Sixteen tracks by some of the best musicians in the area, full to the brim with holiday joy. Yes, it’s all about Aurora, so why should you fine people of Montgomery (or Geneva) care about it? Well, I have five good reasons to check this out. 1. It fits right in with your Black Friday shopping. Made in Aurora Vol. II goes on sale Friday morning, so while you’re already out and about looking for the best deals, stop in at Kiss the Sky in …

Didn't know I do music reviews too, did you!
I’ve never been disappointed by a Greg Boerner (pronounced burner) album. You know the drill. You buy the latest offering from your favorite artist and, if you’re lucky, two songs are worthwhile in a generally disjointed effort. In fact, this “one or two decent songs and the rest is crap” standard is, in great part, responsible for the demise of the album and the rise of online music venues like iTunes. Why pay 13 bucks for something that turns out to be mostly filler. I often wonder if my sons will ever be able to enjoy the great feeling that comes from listening to an album from start to finish and finally understanding the whole is far greater than the sum its parts. Anyone who’s listened to Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon can attest…
