Back to New York everyone and it feels good. Here is some news:

The Police reunion is official. For months there have been reports that the Police would be reuniting for a tour to coincide with the 30th anniversary of their first single. Well now the rumors are true as the Police have been announced as the opening act to this year's Grammy Awards. The trio will play together for the first time in over 20 years and will announce dates for an 80 gig tour that will take place later this year. (Source)

While this news is not really new anymore it is new to the blog since the announcement happened while I was away. The official line-up for this year's Coachella festival has been announced. The festival will take place over the course of three days this year for the first time since the festival's inception. The highlights for this year's festival include headliners Bjork, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and a reunited Rage Against The Machine. (Source)

Last night some friends and I had a night on the town after the first week of classes. After what stated out as a little disappointing we trecked for over a mile around the the city before winding up at the Bulgarian Bar. This little hole in the wall on the Lower East Side was a great find. Amazing eastern European dancing music and the D.J. was none another than the lead singer of the gypsy punk band Gogol Bordello. So being back in New York City is pretty exciting. Hope everyone has a good weekend.

Keep it scene in the city.
