Get The Jump On Your 5/12 – 5/18 Plans.
A quick public service announcement from your friends at Central Track: Do something nice for your mothers today. Then, and only then, do we condone the planning of your week.
So we'd get right on that if we were you, because as per usual there's lots going on this week. Like? More festivals (surprise, surprise); Spooky Folk's last show (for now); a trio of live tv/radio programs; a comic book convention; and a whole boat load of good concerts.
