If you live in the New York area and you want to hear some live music this week, you've come to the right place. It's gonna be a hot weekend, so those of you who don't have air conditioners might as well check out some free late-summer outdoor concerts.
On Saturday, Antibalas will play a free set of their politically-charged, Fela Kuti-inspired Afrobeat on Governor's Island, just a short ferry ride away from lower Manhattan. Up in Queens, Genesis P-Orridge's reformed Psychic TV will play with Flaming Fire at one of New York's finest art museums, P.S. 1. You can listen to Psychic TV's 2006 live set and interview on Strength Through Failure With Fabio in the WFMU archives.
