"Cosmo-Country" divas, THE VANITY BELLES™, have surprised the NYC music scene by choosing The Bitter End to hold their highly anticipated EP release show on Thursday, July 14th at 10pm.

Seth Glier To Open For Folk Icon Ani DiFranco On June 5th And 7th
Singer-songwriter Seth Glier has just confirmed two opening slots with Ani DiFranco for Sunday, June 5th at The Tarrytown Music Hall in Tarrytown, NY and Tuesday, June 7th at The Oneonta Theatre in Oneonta, NY.
Glier is thrilled to be performing with Ani DiFranco, as he recalls, "I remember my father taking me to an Ani show when I was 12 years old. It's incredible to think what 10 years can do. I'm pinching myself."
Feminist folk icon, Ani DiFranco is a songwriter, vocalist and guitarist perpetually on the move. From the raw "folk punk" of her early albums through the jazz/funk grooves she created during her years touring with a five-piece band to the twists and turns of her current work as a solo artist, Ani's restless creativity continually leads her and her listeners into ever more exciting territory.

Mark the Date -- Fashion Night Out
It’s the stuff of New York dreams – to have 5th Avenue open all night long, free-flowing booze, free merchandise, and celebrities serving your every whim. And what was before only a layman’s fantasy is now a reality thanks to the Devil in Prada herself, Vogue editor Anna Wintour.
Fashion’s Night Out, Wintour’s pet project, finally came to fruition last September in a glamorous explosion of boozy fun, with the goal of stimulating the fashion economy. And on the heels of the original’s success, on September 10th Fashion’s Night Out’s second incarnation shows no signs of slowing down the high-rolling fun.
A new and improved website accompanies the second annual FNO, making it easier than ever to plan your dream evening. Complete with a drag-and-drop map, where you can choose your favorite events and place them on your own personalized map of the evening. The best new improvement from last year, however, is the ability to search through the over 1000 listings for things like “free gift,” “refreshment,” or “celebrity” – they certainly know what New Yorkers are after.

Food Truck Festival in NYC
In recent years, food trucks have become popular with consumers and cooks alike. They’re cheaper to open and operate than a regular restaurant, while being cheaper and more convenient for consumers. The rise in gourmet food trucks in New York City, and across the nation, means that people can sample different types of cuisines during their lunch hour without spending the time or money at a traditional restaurant. The annual Food Truck Festival celebrates this concept by taking some of New York’s best food trucks and bringing them all to one place—this year, the location is Governor’s Island. Just take the free ferry from Battery Park in downtown Manhattan; the festival is located on Colonel’s Row.
