A 2011 NYC Winter Jazzfest
And even when it seems as if the world could be going to hell in a hand basket, and the headlines of the day read something like TSA chief: Resisting scanners just means delays, 'SNL' takes on TSA: Parody over protest, as in those Transportation Security Administration body scanner things suck at those airports to be found on planet earth for the Thanksgiving day holiday travel and beyond. I still find myself blah blogging away on this blagh for some reason. And that 2011 New York Winter Jazzfest is happening in that city of New York again this year, I mean next year. And I know that 7th annual Winter Jazz Festival is happening again next year because some friends who are playing there says so. And I find myself blogging about music events and more on this blog every so often because hey, it's less writing sometimes, I think. And according to that facebook event invite that I came across in my facebookaholicness, that festival is taking place at five West Village venues of Le Poisson Rouge, Sullivan Hall, Kenny's Castaways, Zinc Bar and the Bitter End, Friday, January 7th & Saturday, January 8th with sixty and more groups showcasing music all night.
