Empire of the Sun at Terminal 5—If you love "Walking on a Dream" and other synth-pop goodies from Australian duo Empire of the Sun, you won't want to miss their concert at NY music hub Terminal 5. They'll be joined by The Juan MacLean, who are sure to spin a rad DJ set.

Electric Chaircut—If you're not afraid to take risks with your tresses, come out for Nelson Loskamp's Electric Chaircut. An interactive, electro-sonic, haircut performance, volunteers are strapped to the chair while Nelson's scissors and clippers are wired to sound effects and blasted through an amplifier. It sounds just crazy enough that we might try it!
