A year of Vienna Teng concerts

by Michael on Friday, January 22nd, 2010

There are only two possible reasons for the lack of concert posts here over the past year.  The first is that I didn’t go see any live music.  The second is that I failed to post about it. Fortunately, the second explanation is the correct one. In an attempt to get things rolling again, this […]
