Free Summer Stuff, Part II

Sorry this is late in the game, but below is a compilation of what I deem to be the best FREE summer concerts in NYC.

Go, stand in a crowded line and be a hot mess for the love of music!

Governor's Island and Water Taxi Beach
Highlights include...
~06/19 The Morning Benders, Freelance Whales, Wild Nothing at The Beach
~ 07/04 She & Him The Beach at Governors Island

The Today Show

If you are awake from the night before, may as well.
Some shows worthy of the time slot...
~06/18 James Taylor & Carole King
~07/09 LADY GAGA!!!!!!!!!

Prospect Park Bandshell
Super nice venue. As with everything--get there early. But if you can get seats, it's a lovely experience.
Must sees...
~07/30 The Swell Season
~07/31 Sonic Youth

Central Park Summer Stage
Unfortunately, all the good shows are "sold out." You most likely wont' get in, but listening from the outside on a nice blanky ain't so bad either.

River Rocks
Take me the River they say! Great song. This is mostly string quartets, but they have some great outdoor movie screenings like The Hangover on July 7th! And Deer Hunter is playing August 12th.

Brooklyn Bridge Park
So it's movies, not concerts? So what? It's my blog and I can do what I want.

Williamsburg Waterfront
Nothing beats this line up--Pavement, Belle & Sebastian, Weezer, Primus, etc.! Sadly, most aren't free :-(

Feel free to add ones I've missed in the comments!! Enjoy people.
