Free Rock Concert Friday in East River Amphitheater

Members of the rock band Bodyface are worried that rock radio is dying in New York City, in the wake of the reformatting of WRXP-FM this summer, and they plan to do something about it.

This Friday, Sept. 30, the band and other sponsors will host a free concert called Bring Rock Back, featuring bands from all five boroughs playing in the amphitheater in East River Park, just south of Grand Street. Here’s the lineup:

  • 2:00 PM The Blackfires
  • 2:45 PM The Karen Curious Band
  • 3:30 PM Full Molder
  • 4:15 PM Vinyette
  • 5:00 PM Patchwerk
  • 5:45 PM Cinema Cinema
  • 6:30 PM Bodyface
  • 7:15 PM Jolly
