Do you like music? How about free, intimate concerts? If you can get up early, you're in luck.

The TODAY Concert Series is here!

On select mornings through September, head to Rockefeller Plaza for the shows, which began at 8 a.m. and are broadcast on the show. But you need to get there early. According to TODAY, some people get there the day before to get in line. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis,and typically several thousand fans attend. No age restrictions. 

There is also a special pass called the Fun Pass that you can apply for via a lottery. Get more info on that at

Gothamist suggests just showing up and listening from behind the stage, or outside the viewing area, instead of trying to get in and actually see the artists. That might indeed be easier...
