PRF NYC is a gathering of independent music fans and friends that met through Electrical Audio’s forum section. This will be the second hosting of the PRF ( the jocularly dubbed “premier rock forum”) in New York City, following previous PRF events in Chicago, Milwaukee, Louisville, the San Francisco Bay Area, among others. United by a shared interest in record engineering, independent music, and aluminum guitars, PRF NYC is an event to bring this community of bands together.
