Hey Bloggers, it's that summertime of year again and summer festivals are happening again. It seems to be time for those outdoor concerts here in New York City and around the world again. And Central Park Summer Stage is one of those festivals that seem to happen each summer time of year in that city of New York. And that festival is happening now and it's free. I know because this weeks Nonsense NYC list and a bunch of other publications and advertisements says so. And so I thought to post their schedule if you happen to be in the neighborhood, that Central Park SummerStage music is worth checking out, and also because, hey, it's less writing sometimes:
