If anyone out there is gonna be in the NYC area during any of these events, I would HIGHLY suggest trying to attend. Also check out Tools Of War too.
Christie Z Pabon from http://www.myspace.com/toolsofwar also had these comments : We had our first jam of the season last night (June 4th) @ Behagen Park. What I didn't realize is that Behagen is really the legendary 23 Park where Flash, Mean Gene, GW Theodore, Caz, DITC got their start! I hope you can make it to one or more of our jams this summer. We are so excited that NYTimes.com gave us some love yesterday!!! http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/%20...%20eneration/ ... eneration/
