Many of NYCs best pay tribute to punk rock icons The Replacements at Mats City: A Tribute Concert to The Replacements. Performers include Ted Leo, Craig Finn (of The Hold Steady), Brian Fallon, Charlie Mars, Danny Sage, Dave Hause, Don DiLego, Jesse Malin, Johnny T., Kevn Kinney, Alejandro Escovedo, Matt Pinfield, Matt Romano, Matthew Ryan, Nicole Atkins, Steve Wynn, Tommy Ramone, Todd Youth, Walter Lure, Willie Nile and more. 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 barâ€™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 cafÃ© has been serving French food and coffee since the 80s and has a relaxing vibe. Itâ€™s as punk as that neighborhood gets nowadays.
