Summerstage 2013: FREE & Low Cost NYC Concerts

Summer in New York City is incomparable; the sights, the sounds, the food, and of course, the FREE concerts. The City Parks Foundation prides themselves in creating summer-long arts & music programming under the Summerstage moniker for no cost upwards to about $40 for benefit events. Summerstage always was and will continue to be what makes summer in my city so special. I’ve compiled a grand list of some great shows to look out for in the months of June through August. Some of my FAVES, including Quadron and Disclosure, are performing, so I am beyond excited. My guide compiles mainly hip-hop, soul, and electro acts. Check out the Summerstage site for more.
