UV Ray (featuring Yuval Gabay and Sebastian Steinberg of SOUL COUGHING) is playing a show at Wetlands Preserve in NYC. For those of you who dont know, Soul Coughing used to play there a lot. Some really great performances came from that club. The club will be missed by a great many people. So, show your support and come out to see UV Ray on Monday, September 10. The show is with Project Logic featuring DJ Logic. Doors at 8pm.
