The Daily Shortlist July 5
The CBGB Festival features emerging artist showcases, music business conferences, rock and roll film screenings and industry panel discussions and a whiskey fest. This showcase will see Richard Lloyd, The Bowery Tones, Faith, The Indecent, and The Waldos perform. For dinner, The Stanton Social has earned a reputation for being a beautifully designed restaurant/lounge while serving up some delicious multi-ethnic cuisine. For drinks, a favorite of mine is The Magician, this bar’s chill atmosphere just may be the cure for a well-earned night of rocking. A great way to end the night? Stop by The Pink Pony. This boho café has been serving French food and coffee since the 80s and has a relaxing vibe. It’s as punk as that neighborhood gets nowadays.
