Chances are, you didn’t get a ticket to one of the two Terminal 5 Florence & the Machine shows, the second of which is tonight. (It’s not you, those tickets sold out in about eight seconds.)
You can still soak up a full measure of the magnificent, crazy-in-the-best-way sound of Florence Welch and Co. at the Apple Store in Soho (corner of Prince and Greene Streets), where the Machine plays an hourlong set between 4 and 5PM today. (Stop by beforehand for a wristband to guarantee admission.) Come for the tunes, stay for the chance to watch the Genius Bar staffers drench their iPads with unrequited nerdlove tears for the gorgeously wacked-out singer-songwriter.
Two other Flo-related treats for you: Check her out decked out in full Day of the Dead Makeup (of course she was) for the band’s Boston show on Halloween over at BrooklynVegan. Then settle in her for cover (with harp!) of Beyoncé’s Halo, recorded live last year for BBC’s Radio1Live Lounge.
What I'm listening to: Big Bird – Eddie Floyd
