The Decemberists in Central Park In the Summertime!

Central Park is at its most perfect–its greenest, sunniest, its coolest–when the Summerstage concert series rolls around. This July, the Decemberists (a band made famous by a song named “July, July!“) will be headlining a big show with the big Brooklyn act Grizzly Bear.

The Fifth Avenue doyennes will love it. Indie rock ahoy!
