Central Park Summerstage, NYC, 6.05.2012 – Central Park Summerstage mixes a series of free shows with paid shows every summer.  It gives people confined to 300sf apartments many chances for a night out under the stars with some great music.  But there is obviously a cost that comes with this.  Summerstage relies on donors to […]
