With releases from Best Coast, Kurt Vile and Real Estate, it’s not been a bad five years for Mexican Summer. Keith Abrahamsson and Andres Santo Domingo founded the Greenpoint record label in 2008 as a freer, alternate imprint to their main outlet, Kemado Records. To celebrate the milestone, 17 of the young label’s bands will perform in a two-day fest; these include pop’s resident weirdo, Ariel Pink (Oct 11), and long-lost ’70s psych-folk singer Linda Perhacs (Oct 12), in her first NYC appearance, plus Tamaryn and the Fresh & Onlys (Oct 11) and Spiritualized and No Joy (Oct 12).
