Because what New York really needs is more free summer shows.
Of particular note for readers of this blog:
The Respect Sextet play J. Hood Wright Park, 335 Fort Washington Ave (at W 175th St) from 5:30 PM-9:00 PM.
Manhattan Samba play Jackson Square Park, Greenwitch Ave (at Horatio St) from 8:00 PM-10:00 PM.
Composers Collaborative play Terry Riley's In C in the middle of Cornelia Street from 6:00 PM -8:00 PM.
Not part of Make Music New York, but still free today:
Lizz Wright at MetroTech (sponsored by BAM) -- 12:00 PM.
Richard Thompson in Prospect Park -- 7:00 PM.
Not free, but important:
The Vision Festival continues tonight and runs through Sunday.
