Independence Day is Saturday and Macy's annual fireworks extravaganza remains on the East River for 2015. This year's 25-minute-long display, which should start around 9 PM, will set off more than 50,000 pyrotechnic shells from the Brooklyn Bridge and barges in the water below and further up the river. Anywhere with an unobstructed view of the sky is a good place to watch -- maybe a friend's roof? -- but there are designated public viewing sections on the elevated portions of FDR Drive with the following entry points:
FROM HOUSTON TO MIDTOWN:You can also watch the fireworks live on NBC, as part of a concert event titled "Brave" that features performances by Kelly Clarkson, Flo Rida, Brad Paisley and more.

"The band just sent out a tweet with a mysterious Japanese text which translates as 'Hachiko Square Shibuya, Friday 18:59', referring to the square in Tokyo, Japan. Is it a webcast, a surprise show or are Radiohead just giving us something to do?" [At Ease] (thx Hiro)In related news, Kelly Clarkson of "Since You've Been Gone" (and stuff after that) fame says her new album "was influenced by Prince, Tina Turner, Sheryl Crow, Radiohead." Hmmm. Radiohead's new album is out this Saturday. The band's co-manager Chris Hufford says...
"that the move to make Radiohead's eighth studio album The King Of Limbs available to download on Saturday February 19 via bespoke website thekingoflimbs.com, more than a month before a physical release via XL Recordings, is a "logical progression" from the release strategy behind previous album In Rainbows.Jonny Greenwood meanwhile is hard at work on a new score, and tickets are on sale for a NYC perormance of another.
He explained that Courtyard and the band learned what aspects of the In Rainbows release worked and what aspects did not during the campaign. The decision was made not to take an 'honesty box' approach with The King Of Limbs, as they had with In Rainbows."
