 Arto Lindsay was born in Richmond, but since arriving in New York in 1974 by way of Brazil, the experimental composer has led some of the most interesting and forward-thinking projects this city has seen, including DNA, The Lounge Lizards, Ambitious Lovers and, most recently, his own solo project.

 As Pitchfork Media explains, as Arto was “raised on a diet of tropicalia, punk, and avant garde impulses, he clearly wasn’t the kind of musician to get locked down in one style” - and to describe Arto’s distinctive sound would involve using the descriptors “ambient,” “post-punk,” “Brazilian,” “bossa-nova” and “art-rock” all in a one elegantly phrased coherent sentence (and we really don’t think we could pull that off).

 Instead, we recommend witnessing Arto’s unique stylings in person next Tuesday night at (Le) Poisson Rouge - and filling your ears with his recently-released two disc anthology until then.

 Tickets for the show are on sale now and you can also win a free pair on our site.

The Village Voice-presented 4Knots Festival roared through South Street Seaport this past Saturday, serving up two stages of free music, massive crowds, moshpits, beer gardens, and more for the sweaty masses.  Whether it was stomping along to Those Darlins, kicking back to Mac DeMarco, or rocking out to Dinosaur Jr., the fun never let up for a minute.  God bless New York City and beautiful free outdoor music happenings like this one.
