Rumsey Playfield, Central Park
Tickets: $35 Advance / $40 Day of Show
Tickets On Sale Friday January 23, 2015 12PM

MASTODON
Art is a cyclical beast. The same can easily be said of Grammy Award nominated hard rock juggernaut Mastodon. The group’s four members recognize the importance of life’s omnipresent cycles on their sixth full-length album, Once More ‘Round the Sun. The band orbits around themes of loss and rebirth, twirling a sonic spiral of its signature robust riffing, hypnotically haunting soundscapes, triage of dynamic voices, and thundering seismic grooves. At the same time, this particular collection proves personal for Brann Dailor, Brent Hinds, Bill Kelliher, and Troy Sanders, with the very title saying something slightly different for each member.

CLUTCH
Maryland rockers Clutch have been pushing the boundaries that define heavy rock music since the 4 original members got together in high school. Having been tagged hard rock, blues rock, southern stoner rock and alternative metal by press and fans across the world alike it is safe to say one thing… “What you see is what you get”, and what you get is a musical force that has been best described as the quintessential American rock band.

Kick off the weekend with some fresh air while you drink in the sounds at this monthly musical get-happy hour. The Friday Freshen Up series takes place in West Harlem Piers Park on the last Friday of the month, May-August.

May 29 Kelly Zullo / Funk-slap-hammer-on acoustic guitar

Guitar World Magazine calls her music "An energetic acoustic guitar assault by this skilled, funky speed demon." Zullo approaches the ‘one man band set’ with a focused frenzy on the acoustic guitar technique and songs they are centered around. A standout from many one-individual shows, Zullo slaps and picks her acoustic at lightning speeds, weaving in and out of the loops on live drums she played just moments earlier. Her feet simultaneously play the bass via midi foot pedals.

This event made possible in part by an Encore Award from Staten Island Arts, in partnership with Gov Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Additional support by the Stettenheim Foundation. Special thanks to RPM Insurance Agency and Honor Wines. Free, fun, and family-friendly. Registration preferred.
