If you were psyched about the Jane’s Addiction show at Brooklyn Bowl but not so psyched about the $125 ticket price, here’s another chance to catch some ’90s legends in a fairly intimate venue — for free. Rubber Tracks, the Williamsburg recording studio run by Converse, has announced that Britpop outfit Blur will perform in New York City for the first time in 15 years, at Music Hall of Williamsburg this Friday, May 1.

Boy oh boy this weekend’s gonna be a wild one. There’s a lot of dark energy floating around right now. People have reached their breaking point with winter and it’s hard not to feel like something’s bound to give at any moment.
