2013 Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Delaware
RECOMMENDED: See photos from the 2014 Firefly Music Festival!

On the first official weekend of the summer, Dover, Delaware was the destination of choice for hundreds of thousands of East Coast music fans ready to rock at the 2013 Firefly Music Festival. For its sophomore effort, Firefly delivered a stellar lineup featuring time-tested rockers Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, as well as up-and-coming acts such as Kendrick Lamar, Alabama Shakes, ZZ Ward and Capital Cities. NYC was ably represented throughout the weekend with rousing performances from Vampire Weekend, Azealia Banks, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Matt and Kim, who whipped the audience into a beach-ball-bouncing, crowd-surfing frenzy during a sudden Sunday downpour (after two days of ridiculously perfect festival weather).

Time Out roadtripped down to the First State to soak in the scene at Firefly and, as the venerable Mr. Petty would say, "Take it easy, baby."

Electric Zoo Festival 2015

We were lucky enough to spend Labor Day weekend on Randalls Island for NYC's biggest electronic dance music event of the year. The seventh edition of Electric Zoo Festival hosted top DJs from around the world, including personal favorites of ours such as the Martinez Brothers and Get Real (Green Velvet and Dirtybird's Claude VonStroke). Check out some highlights from the festival in our photos below! RECOMMENDED: Complete Electric Zoo guide

Wild Flag at Celebrate Brooklyn!: Live photos (SLIDE SHOW)

Celebrate Brooklyn! at the Prospect Park Bandshell is a lovely venue, and one of our favorites for seeing an outdoor show during the summer. Still, the concert space felt like an odd choice for last week’s triple bill of Ted Leo, Mission of Burma and Wild Flag—which is not to say the show was a disappointment, but it’s definitely weird to see veteran punk-rockers like Leo or MoB in a space where the crowd is genteel and seated the entire time. RECOMMENDED: Complete guide to Celebrate Brooklyn! In any case, all three were in fine form that evening. Leo, who typically plays at least one outdoor show per summer, kicked things off with a solo set that included well-known tunes (“Me and Mia,” “Bottled in Cork”) as well as a few new numbers. (This Park Slope resident also appreciated his goofy shout-out to Arecibo, a local car service, as he explained the ease with which he got to the venue that night.) His performance was followed by a blistering set from Boston rockers Mission of Burma, which is touring behind its excellent new album, Unsound. The crowd finally got to its feet for Wild Flag, which put on a characteristically great show (I’ve now seen them six times, and the band never disappoints). The outfit's tight set included every song from its debut album, as well as a few covers; in a nod to the New York audience, the band played Television’s “See No Evil” and Patti Smith’s “Ask the Angels” during the encore.

MoMA PS1's Warm Up 2015

This past Saturday, we went to MoMA PS1 for one of our favorite summer music parties, Warm Up. With this year’s extravagant outdoor art installation, as well as a stellar lineup (including Moritz von Oswald, who made it in our list of the 10 best acts to see at Warm Up 2015), the day-time party proved to live up to its expectations yet again. Check out our favorite photos below, and, if you haven’t done so, be sure to stop by Warm Up soon—the series ends September 5. RECOMMENDED: Full guide to MoMA PS1 Warm Up

St. Vincent at Celebrate Brooklyn concert photos

Annie Clark topped off a big summer—which included a St. VincentTime Out New York cover and well-received sets at Pitchfork Festival and Live at Letterman—by closing out the 2014 Celebrate Brooklyn series at the Prospect Park Bandshell. At the packed free show, Clark ran through most of her newest, self-titled album, as well as selections from her previous three records. Judging by all the love, it won't be too long before she winds up playing NYC again, though unlikely at a venue as picturesque as Prospect Park. RECOMMENDED: Complete guide to Celebrate Brooklyn!

I am actually looking for more photos from the silent disco of my friends and I. How can I get copies?
