    Towerin' talents

    Alex Chilton and the Box Tops are among the classic rockers playing for absolutely free at the World Trade Center this summer — and who could that special mystery guest be?

    CenterStage Lunchtime concerts at the World Trade Center If you find yourself with the workaday blahs in lower Manhattan this summer, a lunchtime concert at the World Trade Center by some of yesteryear's most notable hitmakers may be just the tonic you're looking for. At the Plaza (accessible by any World Trade Center building) every Tuesday at noon, various Top 40 legends will regale the crowd at CenterStage with two 45-minute sets, so grab a to-go container of pasta from Sbarro's and start grooving.

    Legendary singer-songwriter Alex Chilton appears on July 17 with his hitmaking '70s group The Box Tops. You know their hits "Cry Like A Baby," "The Letter" and "Soul Deep." July 24 will find the Plaza grooving out to the sounds of The Troggs' hits such as "Wild Thing," "A Girl Like You," and "I Can't Control Myself." On July 31st there's a very special guest to be announced. (Here's a hint — he's British.)

    Heavy-duty rockers Mountain appear on August 7 featuring guitar hero Leslie West charging through their '70s hits including "Mississippi Queen." Have fond memories of Paul Revere and The Raiders? Then you'll certainly enjoy the appearance by their former lead singer Mark Lindsay, singing many hits such as "Just Like Me," "Hungry," "Kicks," and the number-one "Indian Reservation."

    Doo-wop is on the lunchtime menu on August 21 with Jay Siegel & The Tokens singing smashes "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," "Tonight I Fell In Love" and "Portrait of My Love."

    CenterStage concerts  
    Good golly miss Molly! The series closes on August 28 with the electrifying Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels kicking it with hits like "Sock It To Me Baby," "Jenny Take A Ride" and "Devil With A Blue Dress."

    Voted as NYC's best free music series by the Village Voice, CenterStage is celebrating its 15th year with a new stage and sound system, so take a long lunch break and get your groove on.
