Best Free Concerts (2008)

World Trade Center

One never actually goes to World Trade Center shows—they're in the epicenter of the financial district, fer chrissakes! However, for all the hype and accolades Central Park's summer season perennially gets, the WTC series has had a far more interesting, potentially more provocative booking pattern over the last few years. Rita Coolidge? Richie Havens? Los Van Van? And the very fact of the banal, lifeless plaza's locale means a stodgy refuge from the sweaty, heathenish, wilding masses SummerStage draws. Who knows? Here, in the shadow of the sleek shafts erected in 1973, you might just get your groove and your freak on with the Man in the Gray Flannel Suit.
