We were already pumped to check out the upcoming 4Knots Music Festival (South Street Seaport; villagevoice.com/4knots; June 29 1–8pm; free) once it was announced last week that prolific Philly guitar noodler Kurt Vile and a trio of hard-rocking local standouts (The Men, Parquet Courts, Marnie Stern) would hit its two outdoor stages. And now we’re even more excited: This afternoon, word spread that catchy, continually impressive Brooklyn indie-rock crew the Babies, rising Vancouver punks White Lung and soulful garage-rockers Reigning Sound will also join in on the fun-in-the-sun action. Can’t wait! 

Watch the new music video for the Babies’ “Mess Me Around” below.
