P.C.D. Post Carnival Depression

If you’re a soca music fan, you’re probably listening to Commish Radio everyday at noon EST to check out the latest music. If you live in the NYC area, you probably heard of an event called Post Carnival Depression (P.C.D.). If you haven’t heard of it, let me break it down for you.

I just came back from Trinidad Carnival. As a DJ, I’ve been apart of P.C.D. in the past but never understood why the energy at this particular event is much higher than any other event that I’ve seen. After being in Trinidad for almost a week during Carnival and going to various parties, I understand now. Carnival is such a high energy, euphoric and peaceful musical event that it creates a feeling that you can’t let go of. Thus the event being names P.C.D. is accurate. When you go home, you are depressed. I’m going through it now.

If you’re a soca music fan, this is a must attend event. Click on the ticket link for info on the artist and DJ lineup.
