We really love music and finding new bands to listen to. So, we’re excited to host three days of free, live broadcasts from the lobby of Ace Hotel New York with KEXP and Free Yr Radio this Wednesday through Friday during CMJ. The Drums, Devotchka, Holly Miranda and The Decemberists’ Colin Meloy are playing, plus lots of other rad musicians. 

After each day of broadcasts, the fantastic John Richards of KEXP will spin live happy hour sets from 5:30 to 7:30pm in the lobby. We’re also honored to announce that John and his partner Amy — together, Pair Music — are collaborating with Ace to curate playlists for New York and Palm Springs. These people always know how to pick the right song to mysteriously match your mood.
