Hello Kids! Welcome to Summer! Yes, the birds are chirping, the subway’s hot and sticky, and the music you have waiting for -all frozen year long -has come. New York City knows best when launching a summer palooza of awesome indie music for everyone and just like the great city it is, NYC makes sure it hosts a Vans House Party which does it for free! It is the Summer Music Series presented by FYF and it will be held in The House of Vans (25 Franklin St..) a 25,000 square foot warehouse in one of my favorite boroughs of NY, Brooklyn, doors open at 7pm every event but Vans suggests an early arrival to ensure entry.

If you are late on the happening’s, I’ll tell ya what you already missed. Last Thursday: Charles Bradley and his Extraordinaires, Mac DeMarco, and Benjamin Booker.

Interested? Here are some reasons to call off work: Thursday June 19th STRFKR, Poolside, and Chrome Sparks.

Was that enough? Want more? I knew you would, you greedy little children. Well you also got the Black Lips, NightBirds with a Special Guest on Thursday July 3rd.

Thursday July 10th Gorilla Biscuits, Bouncing Souls with a Special Guest- and on we go with exceeding coolness: Future islands, Omar Souleyman, and MAS YSA.

Then for a indescribable finale that can only be explained with extreme and passionate dance, we get loose with the Holy Ghost! (No Church), Kim Ann Foxmann, and Dave P on Thursday August 14th-Whew.

Did I mention it is all ages and free with and RSVP? You can RSVP on or follow the URL

I would suggest taking off every Thursday for the entire summer if you don’t want to miss out on the best time of your life. Just Sayin. Follow vans on Tumblr for more updates and coverage.
