NYC, 5/21: Berkeley Carroll and rally
We haven't been to NYC to perform in while so we're happy that we'll be in the city for 2 events tomorrow. First, as a reminder, there is a rally/candlelight vigil in support of Laura Ling and Euna Lee, the 2 APIA reporters who are being held prisoner in North Korea for investigating reports of human trafficking between North Korea and China. Catzie and I plan to attend this rally from about 6-6:30pm. Here's the info again:
