Subway service has gotten much faster

Now we’re in two places at once.

138th and 3rd

Things are looking UP

My buds in StereoCrowd, 
fresh from their broadcast at the NASDAQ...

...are booked to open for Girl Talk!

GirlTalk is an indie giant who makes a compelling case for the Fair Use Doctrine in copyright law by digitally sampling a variety of artists into exciting mashups. He’s well known for driving crowds right through the roof. It’s not everyday you hear Biggie Smalls and Nirvana mashed up with Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer”.
