What's better than getting a little sexy? Getting sexy for free at noon in the middle of Metrotech, BAM is guessing. That theory will be put to the test once again at the 2012 R&B Festival at Metrotech Commons, the annual, completely free and open to the public series going down throughout the summer. Kicking off on June 7th with a performance from the legendary Larry Graham and Graham Central Station, the party goes down every Thursday at noon until middle August and features appearances from Aloe Blacc, Fishbone, Blitz the Ambassador, The Orchestre Poly-Rythmo, Shemekia Copeland and NRBQ, Ky-Mani Marley, and more. Full shcedule is below.
The Orchestre Poly-Rythmo also play Central Park Summerstage while they're in town.
Aloe Blacc's appearance is one of THREE scheduled for NYC, including another free show at Lincoln Center on August 12th. He'll also be on hand to celebrate the late, great Curtis Mayfield on July 20th.

Van Halen @ MSG in Feb. (more by Chris La Putt)
Van Halen, still reunited with David Lee Roth and out touring in support of a new album, have announced a July 13th show at Izod Center in NJ. "Tickets Go On Sale Monday, April 23 at 10AM at www.livenation.com, www.ticketmaster.com, charge by phone at 800.745.3000, and at select Ticketmaster locations." Prices are $49.50, $79.50, and $149.50.
Opening the new date will be one of Bob Marley's 11 children, Ky-Mani Marley. Why do I point out how many brothers and sisters Ky-Mani has? Because it's still fresh in my mind after seeing the "Marley" documentary (which opens in theaters on 4/20).
All Van Halen tour dates are listed below...
