PARKSTOCK: Not content to make era-defining documentaries, scruffy, genial Ken Burns has also convinced a stellar lineup of artists to play a free show in Central Park’s East Meadow tonight, as part of the screening premiere of his latest opus, “The National Parks: America's Best Idea” – and in celebration of National Parks Week. Carole King, Eric Benet, Gavin DeGraw, Counting Crows, Alison Krauss and Burns himself will be on hand at 7PM.
BEAN THERE: Over at chocolate purveyor Vosges, they decided truffles weren’t decadent enough solo – so tonight, they’ll be set up in five sampling stations, served with specially-concocted red-fire martinis, and paired with small bites and olfactory delights at the Urban Girl Squad Aztec-Themed Vosges Tasting Party. All that, plus 10% off purchases, luxe gift bags, and more. 7PM.
O YEAH: Radio City Music hall gets a case of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, as Karen O. brings her glossy bob, Chrissie Hynde vocals, and disaffected skinny-boy bandmates to the big stage. As the trio rocks tunes from their current “It’s Blitz” album – which O. has described as feeling “like a John Hughes ’80s movie” -- sloppy, infectious mayhem will reign. 8PM.
