citi vault music thirty second to mars



It’s a ground shaking week in music January 24th-28th, even for New York standards, with Thirty Seconds to Mars, The National, Eminem, Childish Gambino, Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds and The Roots in town, playing back to back at two of the city’s most loved venues, Irving Plaza and the Gramercy Theater. Eminem has been gracing ever single major festival lineup lately, so it’s no surprise to see his name in this stacked roster.

Yes, this is all really happening. But, there’s a small catch. To be granted access to this traditionally industry-only-invite shows, you have to be a Citi cardholder. Who knew you a had a blessing in disguise in your wallet this whole time. (Help a friend out?)
