Lincoln CenteR

In addition to Lincoln Center's 2010 Midsummer Night Swing which runs from June 29th to July 17th, the schedule for this year's Lincoln Center Out of Doors Festival (July 28th-August 15th) has been set, and in it there's a wealth of worthy, free music.

One of the centerpieces is an all-day Ponderosa Stomp-presented lineup on Saturday, July 31st. That's split up into an afternoon show at the Hearst Plaza Stage, and a night show at Damrosch Park Bandshell, and includes music from "sixties garage icons Mitch Ryder and ? and the Mysterians, iconoclastic rockers The Gories and Death (who recently played Europa), nomadic bluesman Eddie Kirkland, stirring soul singers Melvin Davis and Spyder Turner, Motown hitmakers The Velvelettes and Dennis Coffey and R&B all stars The Party Stompers."

The July 31st shows are part of the two-day 27th Annual Roots Of American Music series that also includes a show on Sunday, August 1st with Asylum Street Spankers , Los Straitjackets, David Johansen, and Melvin Van Peebles performing a one-act version of Hamlet adapted by Shel Silverstein.

Also on the schedule are Balkan Beat Box, Kronos Quartet with Gamelan Galak Tika, and multiple appearances by Asphalt Orchestra, which debuted last year. August 4th has Robert Glasper Experiment with special guests Q-Tip and Bilal (who also plays a free show at Metrotech this summer). There's actually too much to list up here right now (Juana Molina, Tom Verlaine...) The full lineup is below...
