Another major reason I went ahead and got myself to New York was the fact that Brenda’s band, North Highlands, was going to play their last show ever

Be good or be gone

Sort of out of nowhere, after 8 years of her living there, finally decided to get on a plane and visit my dearest friend, Brenda Malvini, in New York 1the unforgiving light of the subway and hours of travel later
