------------
Monday - June 11th
- Foster The People, Tokyo Police Club, Kimbra @ Central Park Summerstage (Rumsey Playfield) - Probably your last chance to check out these bands as they make an encore through NYC.
- 2:54, Widowspeak, The Denzels, Indian Rebound @ Mercury Lounge - great lineup. I really need to catch up with the Denzels. Haven't seen any of their last several shows and their new material sounded very promising.
- Mystery Jets, Grand Resort @ Brooklyn Bowl - A very hasty listen through a batch of Mystery Jets songs off their new album and I have a feeling this may be one of my faves of the year.

Tuesday - June 12th
- Bass Drum of Death, DZ Deathrays, Shark? @ Glasslands - bring your earplugs to this one...actually bring two pairs ...doesn't the band names say it all.
- Glen Hansard @ Housing Works Books Cafe (SOLD OUT) - have no fear, glen returns in late June
- Zulu Winter, Dinowalrus @ Mercury Lounge - nice headline bill for 5 piece indie rock band from London.
- Grouplove, Reptar @ Webster Hall
- The New York Pops with Ozomatli feat. Students from the Harlem School of the Arts @ Central Park (FREE)

Wednesday - June 13th
- Ramona Falls, The Darcys, Dru Cutler @ Glasslands (Early Show)if you're like me and you love Steely Dan, listen to The Darcy's arts & crafts release of this year, where they cover several Steely classics, including the featured "Peg".  Ramona Falls features former members of Menomena...i'm a bigger fan of their debut but their new album still features strong tracks. Both bands play again at Mercury the next night.
- Michael Kiwanuka, Bahamas @ Highline Ballroom (SOLD OUT)Bahamas is the solo project of Toronto guitarist Afie Jurvanen. Very pleasing debut. Michael Kiwanuka is a British soul musician gaining lots of followers, hence the sold out show. You can check him out the following day for Free at Prospect Park.
- Philip Glass, Nate Wooley, Stephin Merritt @ Issue Project Room - This first evening of the three day festival includes a solo performance by Philip Glass, a special presentation of Nate Wooley’s seven part 7 Storey Mountain, a solo performance by Stephin Merritt of the Magnetic Fields, and a special duo performance by Glass and Merritt. Always wanted to see Philip Glass..this may be the best chance.

Thursday - June 14th
- Kanine Records/Terrorbird Media Presents Class Actress, Air Waves with  Zambri, Beach Day, Bleeding Rainbow, Eternal Summers @ Knitting Factory (BK)
- Niki & The Dove, Selebrities, Beacon @ Glasslands - Sultry 80's tinged electro-pop night...and I'm very pumped about it. I'll give you three guesses on what 80's hit theme is conjured in Selebrities "night heat". I love Beacon's No Body EP as much as i love bacon.
- Philip Glass, Tristan Perich @ Issue Project Room
- Ramona Falls, The Darcys @ Mercury Lounge
- Laura Marling, Michael Kiwanuka, Willy Mason @ Prospect Park Bandshell (7pm-FREE) - These three for free is just as good as Dawes and Kurt Vile for Free. I love our parks.
