So it used to be held from 6pm to 6am and that was an amazing only in new york experience! Then it was changed to noon till midnight, and that was way less exciting but okay. Now it's just 8 hours long?? Lame! Way to ruin one of the few special things that have left in this fading sad town.

Dear "ME": we all look forward to the free 8 hour concert of music you organize. Please let Brooklyn Vegan know when that happens. I'm sure they will post a nice write-up with some good comments.
