Is it time to start thinking about summer concerts yet? I just took at look at the Central Park SummerStage and River To River pages. Someone mentioned to me today that Sonic Youth are playing on July 4th as part of River to River. That sounds good, but will probably be pretty crowded. I see Vampire Weekend on the SummerStage schedule on June 14, and Junot Diaz doing a reading on July 17. I’m curious as to how a reading would work at the SummerStage venue. It just doesn’t seem like the kind of space that would work well for something like that. It might be interesting to go to, if only to see if it works.
