Great Seaport Lineup in NYC This Year
When I was living in New York - and presumably when I live there again - one of my favorite things to do in the summer was to see shows at South Street Seaport. It gave me an excuse to get to a part of downtown that I rarely went to, and to see great bands in a cool, outdoor setting.
Granted, the apocalypse seemed to come down every time Ted Leo played there, but that's a different story.
Anyway, I recently saw that they've announced a big chunk of their lineup for this summer, and it's another good one. Especially the first one. Man I miss New York.
