Unemployed Hipsters Pwn New York
If we needed any more evidence that unemployed hipsters own this town, Belle and Sebastian have announced that tickets for their free July 4th show in Battery Park will be available on a first-come/first-served basis at, ahem, several Starbucks locations.
Specifically, tickets will be made available (2 per person) on Tuesday, June 27th as follow:
Noon to 2:00PM:
Starbucks, corner of the Woolworth Building, 233 Broadway at Barclay Street
Starbucks, Park Slope, 164 7th Avenue, Brooklyn
5:00PM to 7:00PM:
Starbucks, One Battery Park Plaza, Near State Street and Pearl Street
Starbucks, Astor Place, 13-25 Astor Place
Seriously, they couldn't have done one midtown/uptown location for those of us with day jobs?
For those of you unencumbered enough to snag tickets, gates are at 2pm, show starts at 3:30pm, and Martha Wainwright opens. For more info, go to the band's tour page.
