I often struggle with whether or not to announce hot tips on awesome concerts on this site. On one hand I’m really excited about the shows because someone cool is going to play. On the other hand, telling other people means I’m less likely to get tickets to the event.
I had one of these aforementioned struggles earlier today. But seeing as how the event is very far off, I’ve decided to reveal the lineup and information for this years’ Wall Street Rising Music Downtown series. Probably by the time tickets are being given out, every other site in the metropolitan area will have already been touting it 10x over, so here goes. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.
Please try not to wet your pants. This could possible be the best free concert series of this year.
Wall Street Rising is thrilled to announce that tickets to our exciting Music Downtown series will be available to the public free-of-charge beginning Monday, October 17th at 11:00 a.m. Each individual is limited to two tickets for up to two shows i.e. four tickets total), which can be picked up at the Downtown Information Center located at 25 Broad Street, on the corner of Broad Street and Exchange Place. All concerts will be held at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center at the Borough of Manhattan Community College and will begin at 8pm. The venue is a 900 seat auditorium.
