Hey again bloggers, or whoever could be reading this blog. And every so often I find myself blah blogging about events in the area of that city of New York for some reason or another. And maybe it's because hey, I am actually in that city at the moment, and also because hey, it's less writing sometimes. And so this is yet another of those music events that's happening there. And even though this event is yet a ways away from the date I find myself blaghing this, it still seems to be happening, And I know this event is still happening, because a friend and that facebook post I came across says so:
