NYC Show Guide Part VI: July 21 – July 31

In Celebrate Your Scene, Gigs on July 24, 2010 at 3:45 pm

After a slow week or so (besides Siren and the Gospels show last night), the end of July in NYC is gonna be nothing short of awesome. Too many good shows. Highlights are hard to come by since almost of these look like outstanding shows, but I’ll pick the best of the best. I’m super excited to see the guys from Sirs play in none-other-than Shea Stadium on Thursday (7/22), where not too long ago lots of Ridgewood kids just played/watched the fantastic Chocolate Bobka showcase. On Friday there’s the Free Energy/Best Coast/Loose Limbs FREE show at South Street Seaport (let’s hope for no riot…). Big Troubles are also playing that night with Doug Gillard from Guided by Voices, which is awesome. Saturday is the HARD NYC show with M.I.A., Die Antwoord, Skream, Benga, Sleigh Bells, Theophilus London, Ninjasonik, and others. HOLY SHIT! It’s pricey ($55) but could totally be worth it. Sunday afternoon is the sure to be great time Cap’n Jazz/No Age/Lightning Bolt/The Death Set FREE show at Williamsburg Waterfront. That’s pretty close to a dream lineup. Later that night Tim Kinsella is playing Maxwell’s, which may or may not be with the rest of Cap’n Jazz (though it is billed only as Tim, not the rest). Monday the Star Fucking Hipsters play Maxwell’s. Tuesday there’s either The Black Keys/Morning Benders or a little more my kinda show The National/Beach House. I believe both may be sold out, but those are the best two shows that day for sure. Wednesday The Black Keys/Morning Benders play Central Park again, but it is also sold out. Built to Spill are playing Wednesday and that would be a great show to catch. Thursday (7/29) is Chromeo/Holy Ghost! or The National/Kurt Vile. Friday (7/30) is the Microphone Memory Emotion-curated show with Julian Lynch, Ducktails, Campfires, Big Troubles, and La Big Vic, which looks siiick. Saturday (7/31) is day 1 of Osheaga in Montreal, which I’m thinking of going to, but in NYC there’s a Japanther/Shellshag show, but its 21+. Or you can go out to Long Island City and see Animal Collective DJ? Great great end of July, so enjoy it.
