Peg Simone, Sorceress of the Slide Guitar at LIC Bar, 8/27 http://thewgnews.com/2014/08/peg-simone-lic-bar-827/ http://thewgnews.com/2014/08/peg-simone-lic-bar-827/#respond Wed, 27 Aug 2014 09:09:24 +0000 http://thewgnews.com/?p=40533 “A lot of new music boasts of a good time, but it ends up being the same caffeinated sugar water in a fancy plastic bottle, completely lacking in nutrients, life, and anything that’s good for you.

NYC doesn’t get it. Is there still time to reverse a mistake? Possibly, if they stop demolition.
