LOT LIC Music & Film Fest

The LOT LIC Music & Film Series is an eight-week summer party in Long Island City. 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 SinkaneTakuya Kurodaand DJ D-Felic43-29 Crescent St, Long Island City, Saturdays from 3-9 p.m.; Thursdays from 6-10 p.m., tickets free
