Hey bloggers, if you happen to be in the neighborhood, I will be performing my No Police State song for anyone who shows up at the Green Oasis Garden, 8th Street between Ave C and D in New Yorks East Village, Saturday June 21st from 1pm-2pm as part of this years 2nd annual Make Music New York musical celebration. And in case you haven't done so yet, you can sign up at Make Music New York to be a participating artist.
Make Music New York is a new live, free musical celebration across the city that takes place each June 21—the longest day of the year.
On that day, public space throughout the five boroughs—sidewalks, parks, community gardens, and more—become impromptu musical stages, dance floors, and social meeting points. Thousands of amateur musicians, in every genre, perform on sidewalks for the biggest crowds of their lives. Professional musicians perform for new audiences, who come out from under their headphones to hear unfamiliar groups risk-free. And everyone is invited to sing along and enjoy the first day of summer.
And in other thoughts, I received this email from Galinsky who does those really cool Manhattan Monologue Slams. And I thought this email looks interesting to repost:
