River to River Festival

3 Jun

Those of you in the NY area may have heard of the River to River festival. It’s basically a free multimedia festival that runs all summer and features all different kinds of events, from poetry readings to art fairs and most notably, a great set of free concerts. Last summer they put on a lot of shows at Battery park, which was great. Seeing Jenny Lewis and Conor Oberst there on 4th of july just might have been the highlight of my summer.

This summer, they have got lots of great, free, outdoor  shows  for anyone to attend. Typically the events attract lots of different types of people from all age groups, which is great.

Here are some of the featured shows (some were mentioned by Eric in his mighty list)
