Bang on a Can Marathon at Winter Garden Reviewed

From NYTimes.com:

However quixotic the notion of mounting a 12-hour concert is, and however impractical it can be to attend one in its entirety, I feel guilty when I am unable to be at the annual Bang on a Can Marathon from start to finish. I feel obliged to meet a challenge on its own terms, as I did when Bang on a Can celebrated its 20th anniversary with a 27-hour event in 2007. That said, practicalities do sometimes get in the way. And happily, there are ample thrills to be had by the more casual attendee, a category that presumably included most of the audience that filled the Winter Garden at the World Financial Center in Lower Manhattan on Sunday. According to numbers provided by Arts Brookfield, which helped to present the marathon, along with the River to River Festival, an estimated 10,000 attended the free event.
