Tuesday / May 29th
- Foster The People, The Kooks @ Central Park Summerstage (Rumsey Playfield)
- No Glow, Night Shining, Gracie, Beca @ Glasslands - Don't know too much about No glow except that it's a new project by Sean of Your Youth which doesn't say much because i don't know Your Youth either. Regardless, I defly want to check this guy out ASAP.  Sounds superb. Night Shining is appealing as well and Gracie is on Small Plates Records which already have started making a name by signing really promising indie acts.
- Dustin Wong, Sam Hilmer, Weasel Walter, Mike Wexler, Driphouse @ Zebulon (FREE) - Dustin Wong plays very intricately layered riffs on pedals ; it would seem interesting to see him perform it live or simply listen to it while folding your laundry like me. Kind of like Kishi Bashi but without the vocals. People purchasing tix to this will prolly want to go to the Tune-yards show on Friday and Dan Deacon's next show.
- Haybaby, Shy Hunters, Noble Laureate, Little Anchor  @ Cameo Gallery
- Cory Chisel, Bhi Bhiman (WFUV Live Broadcast) @ City Winery - Bhi Bhiman is a singer song-writer from St. Louis ; his voice sounds like a male version of Nina Simone.

 Wednesday / May 30th
- Great Lake Swimmers, Cold Specks @ Bowery Ballroom - The Great Lake Swimmers new album has been getting poor reviews but it still sounds good to me. Canadian singer-songwriter Al Spx who goes by the name Cold Specks (newly signed to Mute/EMI) is grounded in blues, hymns and Appalachian ballads.
- Foster The People, The Kooks @ Central Park Summerstage (Rumsey Playfield)
- Parlovr, Mainland, We Run, The Drowners @ Glasslands - Mainland sound really nice to me ; the picture video for Summer Sick is kind of a beautiful bummer.
- Galactic @ Brooklyn Bowl - The New Orleans funk/jazz jam band plays their first of four nights at the Bowl.
- I Break Horses, Field Mouse @ Mercury Lounge (SOLD OUT) - not that hard to believe both bands have an animal in their name ; I Break Horses opened for M83 a few weeks ago ; Field Mouse is a four-piece dream pop act from BK ; first release on the above mentioned Small Plates label.
- The Crystal Ark, Avan Lava, Kim Ann Foxman @ Music Hall of Williamsburg - Avan Lava play fun electro pop of the same fabric as Penguin Prison.

Thursday / May 31st
- Apparat @ Grammercy Theater- Been a fan of German electronic producer Sascha Ring (aka Apparat) since his collab with Ellen Alien ; his 2011 release was a brave transition into a developed artist ; he will unveil those beautiful tracks with a full band. Should be a rare treat.

  1. the north face バッグのダウンジャケットはノースフェイス商品の中でなんと言っても1番人気商品となっているようです。他のブランドもたくさんあるようですが、ノースフェイスのダウンジャケットが人気を集めているようです。ザ・ノースフェイスのダウンジャケットも極寒にも耐えられるようなつくりになっているので寒さ対策にも欠かせない物となっているのです。TNFの保温性は抜群みたいで熱を逃しにくい構造になっているようなので注目を浴びているのです。north faceノースフェイスを安くて入れるためにはアウトレットはかかせない商品となっているようなので1度見てみるといいと思います。the north face アウトレットノースフェイスは、メッセンジャーバッグ、ベストなどのアウトドア用品メーカーで有名なので知っている方も多いと思うのです。ノースフェイスの商品ですが、ネットでたくさんの商品があるようです。私はS/S MAXIFRESH ShirtW Hedgehog Shadow2 GTX XCRフリースインナー付きジャケットには興味があります。
