It's End-of-Season Sale Season

As fall approaches, you're about to have plenty of end-of-season sales to pick through, starting with Aether Apparel, assuming you haven't started yet. Venture to bet light waterproof biking jackets, down vests and simple hoodies will still be useful next year, as they have been useful every year prior.

Through Aug 27, Aether Apparel, 13 Crosby St (between Howard and Grand), 212-226-8349

We Trust Pitchfork's Founder Knows His Way Around the Decks
THE '60S JAMS

We Trust Pitchfork's Founder Knows His Way Around the Decks

Yesterday, Pitchfork celebrated the 200 Best Albums of the '60s, publishing a pretty intensive guide to records like Jefferson AIrplane's Surrealistic Pillow and Johnny Cash At Folsom Prison, and 198 others we won't name. Tonight, they're throwing a release party for the story, where Pitchfork staffers (like, the founder and executive editor) will be spinning their favorite '60s tunes, with folk and jazz by the front bar and more danceable stuff on the dance floor. Makes sense.

THE HENDRIX BY FERRIS

Are You Experienced Dropped 50 Years Ago. Attend Art Exhibits Accordingly.

Down at Soho's Morrison Hotel Gallery, they're celebrating the 50th anniversary of Jimi Hendrix's debut studio album with an exhibition of the photographs he made alongside photographer Karl Ferris for Are You Experienced's cover art. It's all extremely colorful, trippy, and generally Hendrix-esque.

Saturday
A Night Dedicated to All Things Prince
THE TRIBUTE

A Night Dedicated to All Things Prince

Rahj Mason, founder of the Mash, a band Prince used to go see every week at the Village Underground, is behind the lineup at this Prince tribute show. Other artists have worked with Mary J. Blige, A$AP Rocky, Alicia Keys and the man himself. Tickets are half-off right now. All good reasons to make these your Saturday plans.

Aug 26, 10:30pm, $15-$30, The Hall, 470 Driggs Ave (between N10th and N11th), 718-387-4001, tickets here

THE EDIBLE COLLAB

Dō and The Meatball Shop Have Teamed Up, and It Is Glorious

It's resulted in a sundae consisting of Mexican chocolate cookie dough balls, handmade vanilla ice cream, caramel, whipped cream and toasted almonds—which will be available at the Meatball Shop's West Village digs starting Monday, and should be consumed by you posthaste.

Aug 28-Sept 12, The Meatball Shop, 64 Greenwich Ave (between 7th and Perry), 212-982-7815
