Sixpoint and My Social List have teamed up to bring New York a chill free concert series at Rockaway Beach this summer, the Back to the Beach concert series at snack bar/bar Rippers on Beach 86th street. The festivities get kicked off with a special July 4th show with Friend Roulette, Celestial Shore, Pow Wow!, This Library Is On Fire, Hippy and The Roads. DJ Tags will spin in between sets.
It continues on August 10 with Heliotropes, Dead Stars, Quiet Loudly, Eastern Hollows, The Meaning of Life and The Veda Rays, and wraps up on August 31 with a bill that is still being worked on but features Blackout, Hector’s Pets, Toaster, Zula and Kids Row with more TBA. Additional dates may be added to the series, and donations will be accepted at each show to support Hurricane Sandy Rockaway relief efforts via City Harvest. Each show is all ages, free and runs from 1-9 p.m.
