Free Winter Concert Series for the holidays at Pershing Square. New deejays Friday nights
It's time for "glide in" music at the Downtown on Ice holiday skating rink. The stage is adjacent to the ice rink that is now open everyday through January 20th at Pershing Square.
"Spinning" without skates, deejays Cody Nadeau and Cameron Trowbridge of BRKLYN will host Club Nights every Friday in December from 8:00pm to 11:00pm with an electronica groove. (http://soundcloud.com/brklynmusic)
Framed by towering skyscrapers and historic landmarks, this spacious rink is certainly the most beautiful in the city. This season there is no doubt a rink close to wherever you live, but this is worth going to just to absorb the atmosphere. You can get there easily without the traffic and parking hassels - go Metro to the Pershing Square Red Line Station.
All concerts are free and open to the public
