The three best things to do in New York today

By Lea Ceasrine

Catch a performance by Live at the Fillmore: The Definitive Tribute to the Original Allman Brothers Band
Take a trip "Southbound" for a good 'ol taste of Southern rock, as these long-time Allman-admirers perform some of the legendary band's greatest live hits. Although they won't be performing at the Fillmore East rock venue, where the original band first recorded their top-selling live album At Fillmore East, the tribute band will still have you singing the Westboro Blues.
Brooklyn Bowl, 8pm; $8 adv, $10 door 

Bring your favorite third-wheel for Friends of Single People
With only five days left of the Brooklyn Comedy Festival, you won't want to miss the opportunity to drag your single friends along to this. Members of the crowd will be randomly selected to represent their single friends onstage in a live dating game. Expose their dirty Tinder secrets—and hey, they might even meet a match! They'll thank you later, we hope. 
Littlefield, 9pm; $7

Catch a screening of the cult-classic, The Blues Brothers
Filled with comedy, craziness and cameos from jazz-icons James Brown, Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin, this is one of the best throwbacks in the annual Central Park Conservancy Film FestivalThe film is a tale about brothers Jake and Elwood Blues, who decide to get their old band back together in hopes of raising money for the old Catholic school they went to. Be sure to bring a picnic basket and blanket for this one. 
Sheep Meadow, 8pm, free
