It’s just about July, so here is the July Music Calendar. The usual ground rules apply: listings are for venues in New York City and for bands that I can personally recommend or which I have reason to believe are worthwhile. All shows listed here are free or have tickets which cost $40 or less. I’ve tried to list the set time for each band. If all I have is a time when the show starts or when doors open, I’ll list that and so note it.
Also of note this month is The Prospect Heights Music and Art Festival which runs from July 15-19. The music portion of the PHMAF will take place at The Way Station, Branded Saloon, The Soda Bar and The Saint Catherine. I have not included any recommendations for the Festival because I am mostly unfamiliar with the bands playing there. But there is a PHMAF mixtape here.
Some venues play things close to the vest. So this calendar will be updated from time to time during the coming month.
