It Looks Like Midtown's Troubled Music City Tippler Will Close This Weekend

Yahoo! Music News - Wed, 10/29/2014 - 05:09

It Looks Like Midtown's Troubled Music City Tippler Will Close This WeekendAfter a little over a year in business, it looks like Music City Tippler, the Midtown restaurant and bar that has struggled for a large part of its short life, will shutter permanently this weekend. Back in August, local restaurant group Strategic Hospitality was hired on in what appeared to be a last ditch effort by the Tippler owners to save the project, but Eater has now received a tip from a trusted source saying that an 'empty the bar' party will be taking place this weekend, something typically done as a last hurrah. Additionally, a social media post from former Tippler general manager Daniel Cheney confirms this, stating that his sources tell him this Friday night will be the restaurant's last.

Trip Tips: New York City for music lovers

Yahoo! Music News - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 23:41

File photo of a man playing an erhu, a traditional Chinese instrument, in the subway following the 14th Annual Chinatown Lunar New Year Parade in New YorkNew York is a center for blues, jazz, folk, rock, hip-hop, punk, classical and other musical styles played in its world-class concert halls, dive bars, parks and museums. The city that never sleeps moves to the beat of many different drummers, from the timpani player at the New York Philharmonic to the street performer skillfully pounding the bottom of an overturned plastic bucket. Many of New York City's 8.4 million residents were born in another country, which means the typical subway rider has likely commuted to the sounds of an Andean harp, a West African kora, a Chinese erhu or a Caribbean steel drum being played at rush hour as part of the Music Under New York program (http://web.mta.info/mta/aft/muny/). Fans of the late American composer Leonard Bernstein swear certain subway trains sound the first few notes of his "West Side Story" hit "Somewhere" when they pull out of the station.
