New York 40th Anni Celebration This Weekend

Instead of celebrating its 40th anniversary with an electronic cover or some other gimmick, New York is throwing a party this Friday at the Hammerstein Ballroom featuring the likes of The National, Grizzly Bear and comedy troupe Stella (Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter and David Wain). Doors open at 6 p.m.

VIP tix are sold out, but the peons can get regular ones here.
