It's summer in the city...the air is clear clear clear*

The summer season is slowly creeping up and soon we will be immersed in sun-saturated days with steamy sidewalks and Mr. Smoothy stationed on every street corner. Your favorite bars suddenly become yours once again as the NYU students filter out and people retreat to their Hampton resorts. I tend to stick around because i personally adore my neighborhood the most during its' quiet season, despite the faint scent of trash and my daily heart attack that comes from living in a walk-up apartment. To keep me happy i indulge in weekly doses of delicious concert decadence. I am highly excited for this concert going season and hopefully you will be as well. See you out and about!

The Fleet Foxes are a band that has been recieving ample amounts of blogger love and have just recently wrapped up a tour opening up for Blitzen Trapper. Make sure to pick up their album on June 3rd via Subpop Records. Tickets go on sale for their recently announced show at Bowery Ballroom on July 9th tomorrow at Noon (the same night Feist is playing Prospect Park *tix* are alread on-sale).
