Break out your dancing shoes and close out your Monday with a bang!

Later tonight, Asphalt Orchestra, the guerilla marching band known for putting on spirited and dynamic performances in Lincoln Center Plaza and other famous public spaces around New York City, will perform on the High Line. According to the New York Times, the Asphalt Orchestra is “an iconoclastic 12-piece marching band… part parade spectacle, part halftime show and part cutting-edge contemporary music concert.”

The group will enter the High Line near 16th Street at 6:30 PM and perform near the 10th Avenue Square.
