One of the many reasons we love New York in the summer is all the great live music that happens here, and it doesn’t get much better than the Village Voice’s 4Knots Festival. Each year, 4Knots turns the South Street Seaport into the best place to be, and this year’s lineup has us even more excited than usual. Headliners Kurt Vile and Marnie Stern are two of our favorite bands in the world right now, and openers White Lung and The Men are no slouches themselves. Did we mention that it’s free, as well? Seriously, all of these great bands are playing for free. Come down to South Street Seaport with us and start the summer off right.
