    I saw that you guys posted Gered Mankowitz’s event at the Morrison Hotel tomorrow. I saw on Facebook that he’s also going to be at Good Records on Sunday at 7pm and the SOHO Apple store on Monday at 6:30.

    Here’s where I saw this. http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/pages/The-Experience-Jimi-Hendrix/111494958869162?ref=ts
