Artistic expression manifests in myriad forms. Music, in particular, is an amorphous beast at best—ranging from shuddering dub-step bass drops, to stripped-down acoustic folk numbers—variety is inherently enmeshed within the medium. With a surplus of musical diversity comes an equally ravenous following of enthusiasts. While some may confine themselves to one genre, there are the pioneers out there—those who thrive in the poly-rhythmic chaos of aural variety.
For those desirous of venues with a multiplicity of musical options, look no further: here are 5 spots that range the spectrum—providing the panacean sounds of your choice!
Frenetically we race against clocks: clocks demarcating time, deadlines, and necessary markers in our existence. Nothing reaffirms this more than the construct of the “work week." Battling the exasperation, disillusion, and general listlessness inherited by the “Americana Proletarian Dream”—one must salvage sanity when they can. One must make a concentrated effort to forcibly infuse joviality into the miasma of the week. Every day the options are ripe with enticing avenues for exploration and cultural growth—one need merely seize desire and reroute the inevitable doldrums towards more sunny horizons.
Festivus Presents: FROLIC returns for its 10 year anniversary celebration tomorrow afternoon on the Great Hill at Central Park. The long-running event where music collides with art is intended to bring together all ages of the community with a common interest in electronic dance music. The members of non-profit organization, EMU, Electronic Music Umbrella, believe that this type of music speaks to the souls of the public and use this as a positive medium to unite New Yorkers. EMU and Festivus have been raising money for the Art and Music education of the city’s children with the FROLIC festival since 2008, raising money through sponsorships, helping to keep this event absolutely free for patrons. What is most unique about the event is that it is solely run through consistent volunteer work every year with continuous support from New Yorkers.
