For those in the NYC area looking for an excuse to blow off work, here is a good a reason as any. U2 is playing a free show at 3pm today (11/22) in the DUMBO section of Brooklyn. MTV will be there filming it for an upcoming special. Not quite sure how the show will go down, it is open to the public?
