The “Big Apple” is known the world over for its thriving and expansive variety of night life. However, a bar or a night club can only be “so”different” from the thousands of other bars and nightclubs in Manhattan and Downtown Brooklyn alone.
For this reason, one can make the argument that New York City concerts are what bring real substance to the various “scenes” in New York. For while you can always go to your favorite bar, lounge or nightspot, you may never know when a certain new act or favorite artist will be back in town. Ergo, whether a $279 concert for Paul McCartney at Yankee Stadium or a $10 Theophilus London Concert at the Brooklyn Museum, many find that New York City Concerts are part of what make up “the experience” of New York for its millions of music lovers. Lower Manhattan, especially, has for years served as a hub for the many stages and “show-spots” which electrify the Downtown avenues and park lawns every weekend. Behind many of these musical gatherings in residential quarters south of Houston Street (such Battery Park City or Governors Island), one will find the hand of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Center.
Being led formally into existence in 1973 by Flory Barnett, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Center (LMCC) has “remained committed to being the leading voice for arts and culture Downtown.” In addition to plays, theatre, dance, and other public expressions of artistic talent in New York, the LMCC has sponsored over 60 different public New York City concerts this year alone. The venues of their shows include the Seaport, the New York Stock Exchange, and the World Financial Center. For those interested in future New York City concerts brought to you bythe LMCC in downtown Manhattan, follow them on twitter, facebook, or their web calendar.
Having already made their mark on the New York City Concert scene, the LMCC and other like-groups will be sure to keep the island rocking-out and alive with revelers creating lifetime memories.
