Toro y Moi at Moogfest 2011 (more by Diana Wong)
Toro y Moi

Happy opening day to the House of Vans (25 Franklin St in Brooklyn) free summer concert series! The first show is tonight (6/27) with Fucked Up, Title Fight, and Hop Along (which RSVPed out way long ago), and there's some other happenings in the HoV world too.

RSVP for the Toro y Moi, Shlohmo, and Jonwayne show happening on July 11 opens today (6/27) at noon. RSVP is limited to two tickets per person, and as with all House of Vans shows, entry is still capacity-based, so get there early.

It's also just been announced that LA dance duo Classixx (whose new album, Hanging Gardens came out earlier this year, and who already played NYC a couple times) have been added to the July 18 show with !!! and Jacques Renault. RSVP for that show opens Monday (7/1) at 9 AM.

RSVP info is here for all upcoming House of Vans shows. Check out the updated lineup and a new flyer for the !!!/Jacques Renault/Classixx show below...

You get tickets, but still have to get there early? What sort of socialist free show is this?

Did anyone go to the first one? How was the line to get it? How was it once inside?

If it's anything like last year, getting in isn't hard if you get there on time. The beer line is a different story. Total shitshow. Best to get in line, get a beer, then immediately get back for another beer while you drink the first.

Is Ted Leo the special guest? Or he still too busy having an affair with Amy Mann?

Oh yeah! I'm RSVPing to that one. I can't wait until he plays that Chocolate Rain song!

i'm too old to deal with the hot mess that these shows are

I am also too old 12:01, but the lineups for 7/11 and 7/18 are just too good to miss out on. Thing is, I would gladly pay $20 to go to both of them and that would eliminate a lot of the hassle, especially if they doubled down on the free booze that way!

The Toro y Moi RSVP page said it was sold out when I checked last week.

Agreed. Great lineups, but I rather pay standard ticket prices and avoid the shitshow.

not complaining about free beer, but is there an option to pay to avoid a giant clusterfuck line? By offering free beer, they are able to ensure nobody gets too drunk I guess, is that ironic?

Step 1: Get in line
Step 2: Get free beer
Step 3: Get back in line immediately
Step 4: Hide first beer when getting 2nd beer
Step 5: Repeat

So you spend the whole show on line for beer? Sounds like fun.
