Music and art converge this weekend in Artbeats, a three-day event kicking off today at Pier 70. Each day begins with art exhibitions, workshops, craft vendors, installations and performances by locals like Exray’s, Bronze, Dan Casey and many more. Check out the full schedule of daytime performances for more info.

Friday and Saturday night offers Artbeats afterparties at the pier. Tonight’s free show features Icee Hot DJs, Avalon Emerson, Silver Hands and Push the Feeling DJs. Saturday night’s ticketed party includes Baths, D33J, Penthouse Penthouse, Running in the Fog and HGMNY.

All told, that’s a ton of music, including a whole lot of cool locals, making a very compelling argument to head to Pier 70 this weekend.
