I'm tempted to badmouth this lineup, since that's what *everyone* on here does with *every* festival...but this is actually a pretty ace roster of people. Nice way to kick off the NY summer concert season.

It's a cool lineup, but they're not paying me to attend, and it's not in my loft in "East" Williamsburg, so meh.

thx for pointing out several events are free. i totally overlooked that fact. the McCoy Tyner Quartet featuring Ravi Coltrane is free and should be great.

$15 for Jason Moran/Arkestra? Bargain, you morons.

PS: I am the commenter above and can verify that both of the artists are good, despite not having a 8.6 on Pitchfork or anything. Check them out!

You will Never see any of this talent play the 55 bar in the West Village. Wanna know why??? THEY SUCK A FUCKING ROTTEN RAT ( which by the way the place is crawling with them). Water down drinks, NO beers listed on the menu available WTF!!!! and outside enjoying a smoke with a band member whose band played that night ( I do that alot)I am informed that bands are scheduled 1 hour before they are actually supposed to perform. Leaving them with no time to practice, a hurried set up and unnecessary set list changes( that happens alot ).The staff SUCKS there also.This placed Used to be good,but now.......55 bar Sucks.Go to Blue Note. TRUST ME !!!!!!

Well, He ho there....I was one of the bartenders at the 55BAR for 10 years (last 2 1/2 sucked)! I must speak up! The place was great when Queva owned it..That woman made things happen.... The new owner ran it into the ground....yes, I have to admit he will double bill, play games with the bands...Never call them back, His voice mail box was always full for his staff and his bands...Lots of time it would be q weekend and there was no wine to serve, tap beers were out and back up shelves were empty for days and weeks ? Go figure! The talent were great but some show were getting stale when they were playing the same tunes for 10 years...It's crazy when the staff knows what Number/song the band is going to play next...but not all bands! It's hard to work for an owner who does not give a rats ass about his own club and his staff.....Then lie's and plays head games and money games....really sad.... I know lots of folks that won't go there anymore....They have found real hangs where talent rocks and they at least get a buy back! It's sunny when an early show ends and he clears out the house for the next....and people old folks are standing in the cold and rain with an empty house! Hmmmmm.... 55BAR is not the same venue and this is coming from a staff member is worked there for a decade XOXO

Well I must step in here....I was a costumer for over 30 years at the 55BAR....the older bartenders wee grand! now in the last few months are a bunch of kids who can't make a fucking drink, who can't fucking think for themselves! It's really sad....I went there on a sunday and it was " JAZZ for kids sunday" Hello this is a fucking drinkings man bar! since 1919... What the fuck is Jazz for kids shit! when a father who has a family needs to get out on sunday for a break with his buddies in the afternoon and the shelves are empty and kids are being serves milk, cheese and yoguart? What the fuck did I miss...I thought this was a fuckin bar not a preschool! This turned me off where I could never go back ever again! The male owner of Scott was a rude bastard and asked us to hush while the music was louder than us! What the fuck is that all about..... sounds like the owner had control issues...i finally took this bes bar off my list of bars...back to the ear in, White Hourse, Kettle of Fish! That's where a real man can get a drink! and soak up the old village hangs.... to bad the 55bar sucks the big old Monkey Dick! really sad how everything becomes commericalised...the place has lost it's warmth and it's special charm...back to McSorley's old ale drinking real music bar with real owners

I was there with my Husband guys are so on the nail. It's so not the same 55bar spcial village home... When Queva passed on, Ed Calahan, and Taralynne is gone the place has gone to the shits! Yes, I do know the male woner Scott and his has not a clu how to run a business... Looks like he is out for the money that I don't see coming in when people sit at the table for an early show for three hours and the bartender's have to throw them out cause the costumers ask for 5 glasses of water and one soda that whole time...place looks packed but there are no folks drinking and meeting it's like a dead stool next to ya! The pa hums...the bass amp is hissing, the keyboard is always untuned, toilets are always flooding out to the band...the bartenders tried, but have given up when there is one bar person...where is staff? how can one girl run the place ..make drinks, set up, answer the phones, deal with loosers drinking water and juice and have the nerve to ask for coffee and tea....How on earth the one girl handled it all I bow to her with my bumm knee and cane....sometimes we leave in midset cause the music is such a snore on a friday and saturday ...it's enough to make an old fart like myself fall asleep. I could have stayed home for that! So now we hit the Stonewall where there is always something fun going on R&R
