The Most Blogged About Shows Of The Week

Twin Sister

Twin Sister (via Paste)

The trifecta of Flaming Lips, Weezer and Yeasayer at Jones Beach handily leads our list of the most blogged-about shows this week. Toss in Sufjan Stevens, Lykke Li and Death Cab for Cutie and you’ve got seven days dominated by indie rock. Tickets for these shows may be $30+, but it’s hard not to enjoy a little late-nineties/early-aughts nostalgia.

Beyond the old faves, we hope you’re checking out some of the great free shows this weekend: Fucked Up, Cro-Mags, Screaming Females and Pissed Jeans is one of the best lineups of the summer — and free entry plus free Heineken at the House of Vans will almost guarantee you a great hardcore evening. You also don’t want to miss the Mad Decent Block Party at South Street Seaport. Diplo may not show up, but Gang Gang Dance, Zeds Dead and others will certainly do their best to make up for it.
