  • Free

Last spring, American Patchwork & Quilting magazine teamed up with local store the City Quilter to host a national contest for blankets inspired by the 100-year-old terminal. The grand prize, first- and second- place winners, and 27 finalists in this display draw from the building’s design

Bill Laswell Residency

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

Bill Laswell’s output is sprawling and exceedingly tough to classify. One reason is that his bass work—stretching from ’80s gigs with avant-funk collective Material and punk-jazz brutalists Last Exit to more recent projects such as prog-fusion trio Blixt—is just a fraction of his sonic

The Bad Plus

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

Once known mainly as the quirky trio that made its name covering rock and pop tunes, the Bad Plus now comes off as the consummate contemporary jazz combo, by turns cerebral, visceral and disarmingly emotive. Pianist Ethan Iverson, bassist Reid Anderson and drummer Dave King boast a rare magnetism

Gay Camp

  • Rated as: 3/5
  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

[Note: This review is from the show's run at the 2012 New York International Fringe Festival.] Christian Mansfield, Philip Mutz and Ken Urso (who collectively play all of the roles in Gay Camp) are adorable, boundlessly energetic and rarely less than hilarious in their delivery. Using only crude

Andrew W.K.'s Grand Piano Party

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

The endlessly fired-up Andrew W.K.—last year he broke a world record by drumming for 24 hours straight in Times Square, which gives you a sense of his irrepressible spirit—is a demon at the keys. Whatever he's got in store for this (presumably) solo-piano gig, we're sure it's going to be a

Kurt Rosenwinkel

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

Guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel is one of the most quietly solid and supportive team players on the scene, and a formidable leader whose phenomenal chops are seductive rather than overbearing. Here, he turns up for a roomy run with pianist Aaron Goldberg, bassist Orlando LeFleming and drummer Kendrick

David Bromberg + David Johansen

  • Price band: 3/4
  • Critics choice

Veteran folkie David Bromberg keeps one foot firmly planted in the singer-songwriter tradition, the other in bluegrass. A former sideman to Bob Dylan and Jerry Jeff Walker, Bromberg's been one of America's most revered roots musicians since the early ’70s, and at this Town Hall show he'll be

Tommy Tune: More Taps, Tunes and Tall Tales

The Feelies

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

North Jersey indie-rock legends the Feelies drew on the Velvet Underground years before the influence became de rigueur, creating wired, bookish rock at a time when the Vampire Weekend kids were but twinkles in their parents’ eyes. Expect to hear old favorites mixed in with tunes from the

Hauschka

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

Düsseldorf pianist-composer Volker Bertelmann performs adventurous and inventive prepared piano works—which can sound sort of like acoustic electronica—under the pseudonym Hauschka. Expect to hear selections from his brand-new disc, Abandoned City.
