What websites/blogs/radio stations do you use to find things to do in NYC?

Besides word of mouth, how do you find out about the various happenings around NYC?

FreeNYC (newsletter and website) has free/cheap events. I met the man I eventually married at one of them.

Gothamist sometimes has events.

My favorite one is Nonsense NYC. It's email newsletter format only, and you can't read the archives online, but do sign up - it has by far the most wacky, cool, and interesting events of all of the happenings-lists that I've found.

Updating bunnycup's suggestion - Gothamist's "Gothamlist" mails out suggestions for the evening every morning. They stopped putting them on the web site because people were frequently seeing things a half hour after they started.
