August 12: SummerStage!

Apr 12

I’m as surprised as anyone to announce that I will be opening for none other than our friends They Might Be Giants at their big family show at SummerStage in Central Park on August 12.  I’m doing a DJ set, which is not something I have exactly done before!  But I have chosen a lot of songs in my time on this here radio machine so maybe I can figure this out.

SummerStage Family Day runs from 2:00 to 5:00 and the band’s show is all themed around science, so I’m thinking my set will be too.

It’s all free!  See you there?
