An Outdoor Music-and-Film Fest in LIC, a ‘Mad Cow’ Marching Band, and More

Time again for Good Shows, our weekly roundup of what’s good in live music.

The LOT LIC Music & Film Series, an eight-week summer party, makes its debut in Long Island City this weekend. It’s a free event, with music on Saturdays and film on Thursdays. We know what you’re thinking: no G train service will make it impossible to go. Not true! You can take the 7 to Court Sq. or the N to Queensboro Plaza and it’s a quick jaunt from there. This week’s performers are Sinkane, Takuya Kuroda and DJ D-Felic43-29 Crescent St, Long Island City, Saturday, August 2 from 3-9 p.m., tickets free

Earlier today Schnitz, the aptly-named schnitzel shop in the East Village, told us they’d be giving away Bamberg (chicken shnitzel) and Sweet Onion sandwiches to their first 80 customers this afternoon. As of right now, they have 10 Sweet Onion and two Bambergs left. If you’re not reading this on the Bedford + Bowery app, within a couple of blocks from Shnitz, don’t worry— tomorrow Prohibition Bakery is giving away free pina colada cupcakes, while supplies last.

At Cheeky Sandwiches on the Lower East Side, things are starting to look normal again; or, as normal as it gets at Cheeky. After closing its doors just over two weeks ago due to a bad inspection by the DOH, Cheeky reopened them—cautiously—last Monday. Din Yates tells B+B that the basement is also under renovation, and it’ll open as a new, separate restaurant within the next two months, ostensibly to fill the void of his shuttered “breakfast club,” Bread for the Eater, in Greenpoint.

Last week Ilhan Ersahin opened a new club just a few blocks up from Nublu, the East Village institution he launched back in 2002, and tonight he’s celebrating with a party. The second-floor space is called Studio 151, which, yes, is meant to invoke Studio 54. “There’s a little word play of course, because it’s also going to be a great hangout place,” Ersahin says. “It’s inspired by Andy Warhol’s Factory and the glory days of the ’70s.”

Lauryn Hill Killing Us Softly With Her Ticket Prices; Can’t Fight Veruca Salt

Time again for Good Shows, our weekly roundup of what’s good in live music.


Take a trip back to the ’90s with grunge-rock babes Veruca Salt. The band has reunited to tour for the first time since 1995, but just because they’ve been off the map doesn’t mean they’re out of energy. They’re still wrecking eardrums left and right. Music Hall of Williamsburg, Friday, July 25 at 9 p.m., tickets $25
