8807853052_13dfbe30fdOn Oct. 9-13, the second annual CBGB Music and Film Festival will take over in more than 175 venues in Manhattan and Brooklyn with over 700 live events. One of the big events of the fest—and believe us, there will be many—will be a day-long free concert in Times Square on Saturday, Oct. 12. The concert will feature performances from My Morning Jacket, Grizzly Bear, the Wallflowers, a DJ set from James Murphy and others. Two more stages will be announced for the event, which will take place from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The new CBGB film will also premiere at the festival, which will also feature films about Bad Brains, Iggy and the Stooges, the Stone Roses, Bruce Springsteen, the Descendents and more. For more information, check out the festival website
