Why are so many haters on the internet? Like a lot of cities that have seen better days Utica has 3 great things going for it. MWP, Saranac Thursdays and the Utica Music Fest? How can anyone complain when you can see a variety of top notch musicians playing their hearts out for 30 minutes coming for all over the country and beyond for 10 dollars. Stroll around from one venue to another running into friends, meeting new ones. Are u kidding?! It's great, cudos to Joe Sweet and Galaxy. It's like one last blow out before the ungodly winter hits. Enjoy!!!!
