Will Friedwald's 'Clip Joint: A Video Music Mixtape' Set for Independence Day Americana Special, 6/24
On Tuesday June 24, from 7 to 10 PM, Will Friedwald's "Clip Joint: A Video Music Mixtape" is set for The Independence Day Americana Special.
Will Friedwald's "Clip Joint" is a unique music video presentation, designed for the comparatively intimate space of a bar or a nightclub.
