It’s Not Too Late: Summer’s Best Free Shows


The Village Voice has compiled a list of the season’s best free shows, ranging from small to large, miscellaneous bar to Central Park’s summer stage. The artist list is pretty comprehensive, too, including Mykki Blanco, Yo La Tengo, Fiona Apple, and Steve Gunn, to name just a few. Some of the dates have passed, but there are still plenty left—if you’re going to be in NYC, it’s worth a look. Or if you’re West Coast–bound, Thrillist and LA Record have pretty comprehensive lists of free outdoor concerts in the LA area running through September.
