As part of the Oval Lawn in Madison Square Park, Kat Edmonson plays a free show in the park tonight starting at 7pm. The Brooklyn artist’s eclectic style draws from the singers of the 50’s and 60’s. Check out her video below for an idea of her sound. The music is hosted by the Madison Square Park Conservancy on Wednesday evenings throughout July.

Lineup announced for 2015 Oval Lawn outdoor music concerts in Madison Square Park

Rating: 3.0/5 (4 votes cast)

Every summer on the Oval Lawn in Madison Square Park, the Madison Square Park Conservancy holds free Wednesday evening concerts in a variety of genres. Unlike years past, this summer looks to have some great cutting edge artists that push the envelope a bit rather than the “safe” but at times boring bluegrass/jazz/folk music of prior years. It feels like someone new is in charge of curating the music. In particular we are intrigued by Kat Edmondson, The Stepkids, Kiran Ahluwalia, the Dance Off, and the dual bill with Arc Iris and The Family Crest.

Here is the lineup for the 2015 Oval Lawn series.

June 24 (7pm-8:30pm): Chris Potter Underground Orchestra (Jazz)

July 1 (7pm-8:30pm): Kat Edmonson (Eclectic throwback songwriter)

July 8 (7pm-8:30pm): The Stepkids (70’s style funk rock)

Brooklyn Roasting Company opens location just west of Madison Square Park

IMG_0339-400x300Brooklyn Roasting Company recently opened a location just west of Madison Square Park at 50 West 23rd Street (between 5th and 6th Avenue). The Flatiron location is their first in Manhattan and follows up on the success of their two Brooklyn locations.

One of their differentiating coffee beverages (and currently only available in this location) is their Nitrogen Cold Brew, a “cold-brew coffee infused with nitrogen gas” that is said to end up looking like a Guinness. We have not had one yet but will report back when we do.

They also serve donuts from Dough, and croissants and sandwiches from Margo Patisserie.

Brooklyn Roasting Company is open weekdays 7am-7pm and weekends 8am-7pm.

With the edition of Brooklyn Roasting Company and Toby’s Estate Coffee, we may have to bring up voting for Best Coffee in the Flatiron again at the end of this year.
