Happy 2019! It has been a somewhat low-key start to the year in terms of shows but we’re back with a bang, though sadly including a farewell, this weekend. It finally got real cold, so wrap up warm and let these acts get your blood flowing.
Only three weekends before christmas, which seems stressful, so rather than waste your time shopping, hit up these events instead…
We are crashing into December this weekend but here are some great options to start closing down 2018.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I still feel full of turchetta, all the sides, and pie… but I’m thankful for that, and all the great shows that have happened this year, are happening this weekend, and will happen in the future. It’s a great time to be in New York with so many […]
