Janelle Monae last played NYC at August's Afropunk Festival, and she'll be back in the city this month at Central Park SummerStage on September 29. It's with Nate Ruess, who featured Janelle on the fun. song "We Are Young." It's a free show, but there's a catch. You have to be a Capitol One Bank customer to get tickets:

To get your complimentary tickets (limit 2 per Capital One Bank® customer) go to the Capital One Bank in Union Square on Broadway and 14th St on Thursday, September 15 from 4pm – 7pm. DJ Moma of Everyday People will be spinning on-site, as well as limited edition concert posters to commemorate the event. Based on availability, while supplies last.
