Among New York City’s quintessential free outdoor summer concert series, Hudson River Park’s RiverRocks marks its 14th season this July and August with a new location on Pier 84, and performances by an array of established and breaking artists.
Wild Nothing’s songs are inspired by a longtime love affair with nostalgia. Released this spring, Wild Nothing’s debut album Gemini is full of dreamy, carefree, synth-pop songs that linger with an inexplicable sense of regret.
Grimes, aka Claire Boucher, is among the most talked-about musical artists of the year. Her live performances are both musical and visual, embodying art, performance, dance, video and sound.
DIIV, the brainchild of Z. Cole Smith (Beach Fossils), crafts a sound indebted to classic kraut, dreamy Creation-records psychedelia, and the primitive-crunch of late-80’s Seattle – a perfectly fused patch of classic-underground influence.
