Summer 2014 Ultimate Show List

In my mind, summer = concerts and this summer is loaded with good ones, many of them free. Below is the ultimate summer show list for the NYC area. I will most definitely be hitting up most of them, comment below if you’ll be attending any as well! Also, make sure to comment if you have any shows to add that I missed.
