Lady and Maura ask you for a video with your stories about the old punk scene

only $25 , the hours are 3-7pm (it may run later if people want)
they are still looking for vendors though space is limited so email 'em if you want to sell stuff
. And if you don't want to be a vendor well you'll
want to be there as a shopper so save the date!!
2) after that you can go to the Middle East for Magic Christian (members
