All of musical greats make their way through the Big Apple at one point or another, making NYC one of the best locations for catching pop and rock shows.

Toots & the Maytals - Live in Concert - The Capitol Theatre
July 20, 2018 - Port Chester

Toots is one of the true architects of reggae – so much so that "Do the Reggay," a 1968 single by Toots and his group, the Maytals, is credited with giving the genre its name. Classic songs written and recorded by Toots and the Maytals have been covered by the likes of the Clash and the Specials, and the group was featured in reggae's greatest breakthrough event – "The Harder They Come," the 1972 film that became an international sensation. The all-star guests on TRUE LOVE range from legends like Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, and Bonnie Raitt to younger stars including No Doubt, the Roots, and Phish's Trey Anastasio. The caliber of these collaborators reveals the impact that Toots has had on several generations of rockers and rappers, while appearances from reggae icons Bunny Wailer and Marcia Griffiths show the respect granted to the man who might be the music's greatest living vocalist. At the heart of it all is that voice – drenched in soul, rooted in gospel, and still breathtakingly powerful after almost four decades in the spotlight.

Weezer & Pixies - Party Bus to Pnc! - Rocks Off
July 20, 2018 - New York

Y'know what's gonna be awesome? Weezer and The Pixies performing live at the PNC Bank Arts Center! Y'know what's not gonna be awesome though? Getting your car-less New Yorker ass all the way to Holmdel, New Jersey. That's where Rocks Off comes in! We are running an air-conditioned, bathroom-equipped, sound system, TV screen-rockin party bus from NYC to and from PNC. You don't need to worry about finding a ride, staying sober, or even learning how the hell to get to "Holmdel, New Jersey" on a train. Really, all you've gotta do is buy a ticket, show up, stumble into and out of the venue, and we'll take care of the rest - don't that sound like it's worth a little money spent on your peace of mind? (And - we can't stress this part enough - not having to draw straws to see which one of your friends has to stay sober at a Weezer show!) The bus will run to and from the Hammerstein Ballroom - 34th St. and 8th Ave. Boarding begins at 4:45pm, and the bus will leave at 5:00pm PROMPTLY - we know you guys tend to be late to everything, but, really, you're gonna be super bummed out if you pay for a ticket and then miss the bus (and we're not going to refund you), so please take us at our word on...
