New, free concert series This Is Midtown arrives to save Second Saturday

It’s actually just called “This.” But that’s weird, so I’m calling it “This Is Midtown” until someone tells me to stop.

I didn’t eat breakfast one day last month and wrote a cranky, decaffeineited diatribe against the nu Second Saturday.

Should’ve waited a few weeks, because a new, free concert series in Midtown promises to channel the SecondSat goodness of yore.

The party is called “This.” Or “This is Midtown.” I can’t tell, based on the Facebook page.

What I do know is that bands like Yacht are playing for free on 20th Street, between J and K, plus deejays, local brew—and weird stuff like a “skim board court.” There’s even the promises of “water slides.” In the middle of the road. However that works out.

Anyway, I pasted the friggin’ poster above (see above!), so no need to rattle on any further.
