Smack dab in the middle of Independence Day weekend, Canadian electronic duo Bob Moses played a free show in Central Park that had everyone moving and grooving. Though, Days Gone By came about two years ago (via Domino Records) these guys haven’t slowed down too much (we caught them last year at Terminal 5). It was great to see them back on the most gorgeous of summer nights.

They ripped through a majority of Days Gone By but the highlight of the evening was “Far From The Tree.” Hopefully it’s not too much longer till some new sounds hit our ears.

Check out the gallery from the evening below, all taken by Dana Pacifico.

There’s not much that I can say about The Joshua Tree that hasn’t already been said before. And anything that has been said is certainly better put than I ever could. U2’s classic album is now 30 years old if you can believe it. Which is more than enough cause for the band to celebrate the album’s immortality with a giant tour across not only the country, but the world.

On June 28 U2 kicked off the first night of a two-night run of The Joshua Tree tour at MetLife Stadium, bringing the whole tri-state together to celebrate the classic album, and the band that created it. The shows are presented in an unforgettable fashion, with a giant super HD screen that spanned the entirety of the MetLife Stadium endzone (200 feet to be exact – the largest and highest-resolution ever used on a concert tour) of super HD visuals directed by Anton Corbijn.

On June 22 BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival put on a great night of free music at Prospect Park featuring sets from Yeasayer, Poliça, and Cymbals Eat Guitars. At first the lineup seems like an odd triple pairing, but when you take a deeper look at it, you realize all three acts have pushed the sound of their respective genres to exciting lengths.

The Pitchfork Music Festival has been going strong since 2006 and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. The annual July pilgrimage by thousands of music lovers to the beautiful city of Chicago has once again put together a strong line up. Obviously many speak of going to Chicago for Lollapalooza, but this far more intimate affair is really the festival you want to hit in the windy city.

Everyone knows when they go to a festival who is headlining each day. This year’s trio is LCD Soundsystem, A Tribe Called Quest, and Solange. None of them need many words written about them since all three have tirelessly proven themselves over and over again. The undercard is truly what people need to look towards in today’s festival environment since there are so many now to choose from, it’s the undercard that sells. So here are some of the best of what the undercard has to offer.
