Get More Sugar With Picnictyme At Independent Bar & Kitchen, Catch A Screening Of The Princess Bride At The Angelika And Jam With Tree, Ursa Minor And Covan Treez At Three Links.

Believe it or not, Central Track has been going strong for (almost) six years now.

Seriously. It hasn’t always been the easiest road to travel — this journalism thing we do — but it’s fun and challenging. And we write really cool stories (we think) that a lot of people seem to enjoy. If they didn’t — well, we wouldn’t be around. But anyway, we’re celebrating six years of Central Track at the Granada Theater come May 5.

Local talents The Texas Gentlemen, The Gritz, Medicine Man Revival, Blue, The Misfit. and Picnictyme will be joining us on stage to party and celebrate us going strong. And of course, you’re invited as well!

So there’s that to look forward to next month. Be sure to mark it in your calendars and we’re looking forward to seeing you there. We will for sure remind you when that date comes around. For now, though, there’s today to get through and we’ve got some of the coolest stuff to get up to tonight.
