Tony Allen vs Sal P - this Wednesday

This Wednesday sees the kick off of Music On the Oval at Stuy Town & Peter Cooper Village. All the info is provided below. The line up looks pretty promising, and for free who can complain? The opening show features Afro-beat legend Tony Allen as well as downtown's own Sal Principato, from Liquid Liquid, spinning.

Music On The Oval

Cool off in a grassy expanse after work on Wednesdays as you toss the frisbee, eat from an evening picnic basket, hear some exotic tunes.

Two of NYC’s downtown, sprawling apartment complexes, Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village, will present their fourth, free Music on the Oval summer concert series, starting June 16th and running through July 21st. An international mix of rock, funk, reggae, and soul will take the stage on consecutive Wednesday nights on the well-groomed lawns of the Stuyvesant Town Oval. Each week will start with a different pre-show DJ each night (spinning at 6pm), to be followed by a line-up to include
the Easy Star All-Stars, Delorean, Tony Allen and Juana Molina.

The Stuyvesant Town Oval is located between 16th and 18th Streets and Avenues A & B, with the entrance off of First Avenue and 16th Street. For more information the public can call (212) 598-5296 or visit www.stuytown.com and www.petercoopernyc.com.

June 16 – Tony Allen, w/ DJ Sal P

In the 1970s, Nigerian drumming legend Tony Allen helped his infamous band-leader, Fela Kuti, invent Afro-Beat; and over the ensuing decades, Allen has lent his rhythmic prowess to dance music, alt-rock, and dub, while continuing to explore his original jazz-funk-highlife love.

Best known as a member of seminal New York band Liquid Liquid, Sal P now DJs records that cross-sect disco’s inferno and Lagos’ heat.

• July 7 - Delorean, w/ DJ Brennan Green
