Black-Eyed News:

This Week’s first story is that this weekend is the Meriden Daffodil Festival. There are 36 Ct Connected bands playing, Free Admission, Free Shuttle, Free Entertainment and Free Parking. Want to know more check out their website here:

The second story this week came from USA Today and was about Superman: the Man Of Steel turning 75 last week and that there will be a new movie coming out on the 14th of June bringing the Man of Steel back to the big screen.

The next story this week is from Rolling Stone magazine and it’s about the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony that just happened in Los Angeles this past weekend. It looks like there were some cool performances and the show was taped to be re-aired on May 18th on HBO

The last story this week is about a new music service being offered by Twitter and whether or not it will help the Blues and Blues artists. You can find all of the info here:
