Join the Times Square Alliance and the Clocktower Gallery next Wednesday, July 10 at 9:30pm for Sky Lines: an evening of music with Jana Hunter and Peals. The performance, which will take place on the breezy rooftop of the Playwright Celtic Pub (732 Eighth Avenue at 46th Street), is the final event in the 2013 After Hours series that brings experiential, multimedia programming to select venues around Times Square.

As the temperatures in New York rise into the summer heights, there is a place in Times Square that’s always frozen. The Aspen Social Club on 47th Street with its tree trunks sprouting in the walls, decorative deer antlers, and icy-toned space where a waterfall replicates a Rocky Mountain slope acts as a year-round Aspen cabin. It’s this hidden winter oasis that will host the next Times Square After Hours program on Wednesday, June 12, from 9:30–11:30pm.
This year, we asked the Hyperallergic team to pick a few artists they deemed “worthy to keep your eye on” from their travals across the mega-swathe of Brooklyn and Queens known as Bushwick Open Studios (BOS).

Hawaiian-born artist and designer Jasper Wong is inspired by the day-glo energy of 1980s America. “I’m mostly inspired by 80s culture, like Mr. T and Chairman Mao, and I like to draw them in little dresses and shooting laser eyes,” he explains.
Times Square is full of surprises, but the Liberty Theater may be one of the oddest and most hidden urban gems of all. Located behind Famous Dave’s BBQ joint on 42nd Street, the historic venue, which was originally built in 1904, will be the location of the next Times Square After Hours program featuring singer-songwriter-producer Nomi Ruiz.
