2010 Summer Shows!

New York City in the summer is chock full of concerts.  There are big name shows like Summer Jam and Rock the Bells, as well as ongoing series that bring us music and arts nearly every day of the summer. There's SummerStage, City Parks, Celebrate Brooklyn, Marty Markowitz' MLK Jr. Series, Lincoln Out of Doors, Governor's Island Beach Concerts, BAM R&B Festival, and so much more.  While we will continue to post all of these events on the main page of the blog, I'll be crossposting exclusively concerts here, in an attempt to provide you with a quick and easy way to keep track of all the best (and often free) music you don't wanna miss. Make sure to check back regularly for updates! ~HDaisy
