Concerts in NYC: Summerstage, August Picks Feat. DJ Natasha Diggs, Blood Orange, Musiq Soulchild, & More!

August is creeping up on us, so I bring to you another list of splendid musical shows in New York City parks, and this time around, they are ALL FREE! The genres represented in Summerstage’s August line-up are quite diverse covering Hip-Hop,  R&B/soul, experimental electronic, funk, and jazz.

As I will be out of the country the majority of the month, I do encourage you music lovers to soak up the goodness, especially Blood Orange & Moses Sumney on the 16th. Have fun for me!
