The Daily Shortlist March 30
Part of the Wordless Music Festival, this show sees Flying Lotus who makes experimental hip hop that has been getting a lot of attention lately performing. Also on the bill is Kode9 who makes dubstep music that is just as experimental and cutting edge as Flying Lotus. For an eclectic menu that mixes upscale and down-home food, Blue Ribbon Downing Street Bar, a wine bar and restaurant, offers lighter fare including foie gras, cheese plates, caviar, and steak tartare. The Village Tavern is a really comfortable neighborhood bar that’s great for catching sports games or just chilling for a drink, which is what I prefer to do when I’m in the vicinity. Also in the area is Bleeker Bob’s . It’s one of the oldest independent record stores in NYC and the selection is deep. The place looks a mess, but the staff is surprisingly friendly and extremely knowledgeable about what they have.
