Who's Next at LIC Bar
After Hurricane Sandy LIC Bar in Long Island City was flooded and much of its sound equipment was destroyed. In a heartwarming tale, British rock stars The Who donated amps and microphones to the bar after a customer contacted their management team. To repay the favor, Who's Next, The Who tribute band, will play a concert at the bar on Saturday. Tickets are $20 and all the proceeds will be donated to Teen Cancer America. 45-58 Vernon Blvd, Long Island City
