I saw Wu Tang there, which was one of the wildest shows I've ever seen whereas literally like fifty five people on stage and they gave everyone a mike which I was like. This executive. Pay That person be fired. Everyone does that need a Michael the stage? But yeah. New York it bums me out that. So many of those been user gone and that we're seeing this happen get the been user disappeared right now through the isolation in pandemic moment. It's so sad it's like this whole pandemic situation as put so much clarity in.

Yeah. Yeah. You moved to New York in the late nineties for graduate school than as a music journalist for a little bit and then where did you go? After that like. The Picking up stray jobs for like a while and whatnot then ended up working for a guy named Jonathan more who ended up founding a club called AP T- which was a pretty groundbreaking video that was in the meatpacking club that.
