Get Out! The Weekend Guide

Our picks for fun and local weekend events.

Still have no idea what to do this weekend? We’ve got you covered. Here are your best bets for a good time come five o’clock Friday:

Where/When: , Prospect Park W & 9th St, Friday, June 29 at 7:30 p.m.

Why Go: The SF Chronicle said that Troy “TROMBONE SHORTY” Andrews, is "New Orleans' brightest new star in a generation.” The Washington Post said that his band whips up "a near-deafening, funk-charged blast of percussion, brass, reeds and guitar distortion” that unites the Crescent City’s past and future. How could you miss this show after reading that?

Cost: Free!

Where/When: , Friday, June 29 at 10 p.m.

Why Go: Party Like It's 1999 is back at the Bell House for their “Sleepless in June Edition.” The last weekend of June in 1993 saw people around the country flocking to theaters to see Tom Hanks find love with Meg Ryan in “Sleepless in Seattle.” So, the party will mark the occasion by spinning the best rock, pop, R&B and hip-hop that could inspire your own romantic comedy with a significant other — or perhaps someone you just met that night — in the Frontier Room!

Cost: Free!

Where/When: , Friday, June 29 at 10 p.m.

Why Go: Led by trombonist/vocalist Alex Asher, People’s Champs feature some of New York’s top musicians, who also perform regularly with Slavic Soul Party!, Meta and the Cornerstones, Baye Kouyate, Jo Jo Kuo and his Afrobeat Collective, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, Afrodesia, Nation Beat and many others. Enamored with roots dance music from all over the world, they mix jazz, hip-hop, rock and soul from the USA, Latin America and Africa to create new hybrids.
