Out in the Streets is NYC's best music festival held at an old farm house

Just when you think it's safe to book a weekend trip out of New York this summer, something like Out in the Streets comes along to throw a wrench in your two-day jaunt to Buffalo or Nashville or wherever. The fest, in its fourth year, brings top local talent to the historic Vander Ende-Onderdonk House (and its adjacent yard) on July 16 and 17. The venue—a Ridgewood, Queens, farmhouse—was built in 1661 back when NYC was a Dutch colony and has the distinction of being just a block away from my first NYC apartment. If that isn't incentive enough, the lineup of talented indie-rock acts includes the So So Glos, Frankie Rose, Potty Mouth, TEEN, Guerilla Toss, Big Ups, Future Punx, B-Boys, Boytoy and more. There'll also be a market with items by local Ridgewood artists and vendors, and neighborhood coffee spot Wyckoff Starr is signed on as a sponsor, which I can only assume means they'll be selling their excellent cold brew on site (if not, the storefront is just a few blocks away). Tickets are on sale now.
