Day 360: Top 6 Music Moments of AYINY

June 25th · 1 Comment

New York has so much music that it regularly bursts out of the auditorium and into the streets. For your enjoyment, here’s a sampler of some of the best found performances I saw this year. Which is your favorite?

Convo Exceptional’s sound was so huge it not only filled the Union Square station, but made people drop their ‘tudes and dance.

This duo at a Halloween street fair in Brooklyn left me disturbed in a tingly kind of way.

Scandinavian folk music performed by a wind ensemble might be an acquired taste. But it’s a lucky find while wandering around Fort Tyron on a cloudy June day.

Lucky for them that Child Protective Services doesn’t ride the rails.

How things might have turned out for Barry White if he hadn’t gotten a record contract.

A roving steel drum float at the Halloween Parade. ‘Nuff said.

“Down by the Riverside,” down by the turnstiles on Broadway.

    It was the bad ass birkenstocks wearing trumpet player that did it for me… I’m gonna vote for …Riverside Down by the Turnstiles!
