The Met’s electronic music series, Sun Sets, which has made the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden Museum a top destination all summer long, will enter its final weekend with an exciting lineup: Friday tonight Musclecars will perform, followed by Analog Soul on Saturday. It was the first concert series to occupy the museum rooftop and quickly became a popular experience drawing visitors and music lovers to performances amid sweeping views of the New York skyline and Central Park.
Sun Sets runs Friday and Saturday nights, 5:30-8:30 p.m., through September 3 and is free with museum admission; no reservation is required. Access to the Cantor Roof Garden will be on a first-come, first-served basis, weather permitting and subject to capacity restrictions.
