    3. Painting Arden 'Red'
    The aroma of tunes flavored in global influence will arrest the Arden Gild Hall Saturday night, thanks to Red Baraat. Hailing from Brooklyn, N.Y., Red Baraat offers a sound so powerful it's placed the band in its own unique and enviable class. The eclectic outfit is also known for throwing down at venues such as an overheated and unannounced warehouse party in their Brooklyn neighborhood to Barbican in England.
