We're super stoked about these events right here. You should be too- get up and do something! Up for electronic music? comedy? networking? jazz? It's all happening this week in NYC. Take a look, click on the photos for tix and more info, then head out. Plus, there's way more on the app, plus the best way to gather a group to attend. Find people! Do something! Check it out here.

Follow us on Facebook & Twitter for our daily picks of the best things to do in NYC:

Monday, March 9

This pick was internally contentious but wisdom finally won out. If you remember Johnny Cash singing "I See A Darkness" on American III (and you should), you know Will Oldham's songwriting. But it's a treasure trove that goes far beyond that song.

That would be enough but proto-punk great Jonathan Richman is also on the bill.

Together, it's not to be missed.

For Billy, fans of Bill Callahan, Sun Kil Moon, Grinderman & Cat Power will be pleased.

For Richman, fans of Television, Patti Smith, The Velvet Underground & Richard Hell will be in the same boat.

The Allman Brothers Band is the best white blues band ever, and it's not even close. And the very definition of Southern rock.

So even though the brothers themselves have gone to the great beyond and Dickey Betts isn't on the bill as of now, there's a huge amount to celebrate on the 50th Anniversary of the band. And what a group of musicians they're bringing together to do it, including Warren Haynes and the Trucks brothers from the second generation. It's going to be magical.

Honestly, we're kind of inclined to shame you for reading this part, but here goes with the similar artists: ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Derek & The Dominoes, Little Feat, Grateful Dead, Stevie Ray Vaughan.

The Big East Tournament at MSG is a highlight of the sports calendar in NYC (and given the state of our professional sports teams, maybe THE highlight this year). And while none of their teams are in the top 5, four are in the top 20, so the level of play and competition will be high.

The Atlantic 10's tournament is helping make Barclays every bit as much a center of gravity as is MSG. And this year it stands in constrast with the Big East's situation: Dayton stands head and shoulders above the rest at #3 nationally. But don't dare write everybody else off. It's going to be a great week.
