Free music is one of most redeeming qualities of the New York summer. In exchange for sweaty and pungent subway rides, and co-dependent relationships with our air conditioners, we are rewarded with free entertainment, in settings that, with a perfectly timed breeze, make us remember why we’re here in the first place. This year’s 4Knots Music […]
If we can swing it, we’ll be crisscrossing Brooklyn from Dumbo to South Slope, Prospect Park to Bushwick to make our way to seven stellar events in BK this week. Between David Shapiro’s book launch (you know the guy who writes the reviews of Pitchfork‘s reviews), a special South African film screening as part of […]
