NEW YORK (AP) - A memorial concert is scheduled for the musicians of an Iranian band killed in their Brooklyn home last week.

Arash and Soroush Farazmand were members of The Yellow Dogs. The brothers and their roommate were shot to death last Monday.

The concert is set for Monday evening at the Brooklyn Bowl.

The venue's web site says all the proceeds will go to the victims and families affected by the tragedy.

Performers include the well-known local act Nada Surf and several international bands and DJs.

Tickets are between $15 and $30.

The victims were killed by a former member of another Iranian rock band. He opened fire and then killed himself on the roof of the Brooklyn apartment.

    Believe it or not this, some say New York's outdoor basketball courts are a dying entity. Even Rucker Park in Harlem -- where Dr. J and countless others honed their skills -- used to be standing room only all times of the day. Now there's plenty of room to stand on most days.Basketball programs like one at Chelsea Piers are gaining popularity. That means the place to hoop it up for many appears to be indoors.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?

    If an iced coffee from Dunkin' Donuts is part of your afternoon routine, expect a nudge to buy a cookie or doughnut you didn't plan on. Dunkin' Brands CEO Nigel Travis said in a phone interview Thursday that the company is pushing to get its cashiers to "upsell" to afternoon customers. It's part of an effort to increase sales after stores have emptied out after the morning rush.
