New York is a place where many bands start. Rock, electro, jazz, hip-hop musicians, here’s your home. Every great band has to be here at least once. And there were some legen… wait for it… dary concerts in the city.

So far, I have seen The Kooks in Central Park, Bloc Party at Roseland Ballroom, The Bloody Beetroots and M83 at the Webster Hall (the place for electro/rock sound), Death Cab For Cutie at the wonderful Radio City Music Hall. Everything was awesome! I missed Justice and SebastiAn as it was sold out before I knew it. Tickets were sold over $100 each on black market.

I also had the chance to see Emilie Simon premiering new material from her upcoming album. I am raring to listen to it!

Anyway, there are shows every night on the island and you will find anything you want. That is why New York night life rules.
