Make Music New York today (free music & events all over NYC); Punk Island Sunday

Make Music NY

Like AA batteries on the subway tracks and college kids in polo shirts trying to get you to sign some petition, music is pretty inescapable on NYC. But today, June 21, 2012, it is even moreso as it’s the annual Make Music New York day which puts musicians of all shades and colors on the sidewalks of our fair city. As you might imagine, some neighborhoods (like Williamsburg) will have more going on than others.

Besides a bunch of random bands, there are some fun events. Mass Appeal brings together hundreds of musicians to perform works created for one specific instrument that anyone (with said instrument) can participate in. This includes the world premiere of Philip Glass‘ choral work “The New Rule” which happens in Times Square at 6:30. If you’d like to join in, you can download the sheet music here.

Other Mass Appeal events happening today include accordions in Sheridan Triangle (6:30PM), bagpipes in Herald Square (7PM), harps at Urban Plaza (5:30), ouds at Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza (7PM), and many more.

More MMNY: Joe’s Pub is throwing an all-day block party at Astor Pl./Lafayette from 11AM  – 7PM with performances from Chris Parrello, Heather Christian & the Arbornauts, Sxip Shirey and more.

Slavic Soul Party is playing at Jacobi Medical Center Pedestrian Mall; and Tompkins Square Park has Support Women Artists Now at 3PM, the Hungry March Band at 6PM, and Bill Popp & the Tapes at 7PM.

There’s lots, lots more going on today. Go outside, you’ll probably run into some of it. But you can check their website to see what’s going on in your neighborhood.

Historically and technically Punk Island is part of Make Music New York, but this year Punk Island actually happens three days later (this Sunday) on Governors Island. Flyer and more info below…
