J & R Musicfest and Tech Expo Starts Today (The Smithereens, KRS-One, Clipse and More)

J & R Musicfest and Tech Expo

Sure, it’s more of a clever way to sell iPods and flatscreen TVs than it really is a “musicfest”, but any way you look at it, it’s free concerts in Downtown NYC (23 Park Row and City Hall Park). Here’s what the lineup looks like for this year’s J&R Musicfest & Tech Expo:
