The Walkmen
Free

Northside Festival. There are some great little shows happening all over town for the fest, but this free outdoor blowout in the park is set to be a real humdinger. Long-running New York alt-rock institution the Walkmen takes the top slot, playing from its mighty, latest album, Heaven. And we're psyched to see Phosphorescent on the bill, too—Brooklyn-via-Alabama songman Matthew Houck just released his finest work to date with Muchacho, which combines deep, blue longing with rollicking grooves.
