Downtown’s New Shopping Destination Brookfield Place Fetes Bastille Day
While New York City will honor France’s Independence Day on 60th street Sunday, July 12 why not escape the crowd and traffic and head to Brookfield Place to commemorate La Fête nationale. Brookfield Place, lower Manhattan’s destination for luxury shopping, dining and cultural arts, will feature a full day of music, games, and naturally, French cuisine to celebrate Bastille Day. New French eatery and marketplace, Le District, not only offers guests a taste of Paris in Manhattan but will highlight a number of promotions reveling French food and culture, including specialty picnic baskets filled with French goods and picnic blankets for dining along la Seine, (Brookfield Place Waterfront). A selection of French films will play throughout the day at Brookfield Place’s brassier Hudson Eats, while music can be enjoyed during a stroll into Montmartre (The Winter Garden). Guests can also visit the Champs Élysées (230 Vesey Street 2nd Level Shopping) for children’s storytelling and to view a performance of Sleeping Beauty by the New York Theater Ballet. And to help stay shape super gym, Equinox will feature a “Tour de France” spin class on the plaza with stationary bikes. All events are free and open to the public with food and drinks for purchase.

IndiMusic TV Global Provides A Platform For New Artists
IndiMusic TV Global, owned by Chris Pati, was founded as a “go to” music video website. It quickly advanced as the first 24/7 independent only Worldwide Music Video TV channel and Musician Social Network. With the Global launch of IndiMusic TV, “A Love of Labor” as described by Mr. Pati’s wife, Jaime the network will now reach 30 million homes by way of Verizon Fios, Comcast, Dish Network, Slingbox and Amazon Fire. Rick Everly PR hosted an event at Slake in Midtown where Donna Drake, host of CBS’, Live It Up covered red carpet.
The network provides a platform for new artists. Among those new artists in attendance was top IndiMusic TV artist and headliner for the launch, Justina Valentine. Valentine’s roots are based in New Jersey where at a young age she began her love affair with music. Her father and uncle were musicians so her exposure to different genre’s of music happened early. After seeing her perform it was apparent that her roots were steeped in Rock & Roll and Hip Hop. Her powerful voice and dynamic presence makes her an extremely interesting artist! Her single “Faded” is available on Sound Cloud.
I was able to catch up with Mr. Pati and ask what his vision and end goal was for the network. Simply put, he expressed his desire to be nothing more than wanting to “Get the musician PAID”! He also added that he wanted to help independent artists expand to a more global presence while simultaneously creating a vehicle that could curtail streaming. After leaving the event it was clear that I had just witnessed the reinvention of music for the people by the people on the people’s own terms!
