Mission of Burma, Swirlies, Raveonettes playing free shows this summer

Mission of Burma @ SPACE Gallery in May (more here)

Well, this just made my day. If you were upset at all about there not being any free Pool Parties this summer, it appears that a worthy substitute is in place. The “Beach Party Music Series,” which also appears to be dubbed the Seaport Music Festival will take place from July 10th-August 14th every Sunday at the Beekman Beer Garden, which is located at Northside Pier 17 in Manhattan. And not only that, but Mission of Burma (aka the Greatest Band On The Planet) will be headlining the August 7th date! Admission is 100% free, and doors will open at 11:30am, plenty of time to enjoy the summer air and watch one amazing show from the legendary Boston band.

Other bands playing will be the Raveonettes, Swirlies, the Babies, Cheesburger, Frankie and the Outs and many more. Check out the Seaport Music Festival website for more details and see the full lineup below…

July 16 Cheeseburger
July 17 Xray Eyeballs w/ Frankie & the Outs, and the Babies
July 24 Swirlies w/ Psychedelic Horseshit
July 31 The Raveonettes w/ Eternal Summers
August 7 Mission of Burma
August 14 TBA

Can’t wait.


  1. OH HELL YES. Nothing says "awesome summer in the city" like a waterfront MoB show. See you there buddy. :)
