Having trouble keeping track of all the music festivals happening this summer? Well, I am too, but here’s a new one you won’t want to miss, it’s The Deli’s Best of NY Festival which is happening May 6 – 10, 2009. The festival features some of The Deli’s (and NYC’s) favorite bands performing over three days at The Bell House, Southpaw and Joe’s Pub, and to top it off, it’s sponsored in part by the good folks at After The Jump Festival.
