As mentioned, Dean Wareham is touring this summer and coming to NYC for a ‘Galaxie 500 show’ at Le Poisson Rouge on July 20. Since posting that show, LPR’s website has noted that it will be his final ‘Galaxie 500 show’ in NYC. Tickets for that show are still available.

Dean and Britta also have another NYC area show the day after the LPR show, which happens in Wantagh, NY (near Jones Beach) at Mulcahy’s Pub on July 21 with The War On Drugs. it’s a benefit show billed as the “SHINE A LIGHT MUSIC FESTIVAL,” in support of the Tommy Brull Foundation. Deer Tick played a similar show at the venue last summer, and like that show, this one will also be supported by Wormburner. Tickets for the Mulcahy’s Pub show are on sale now.

You can also catch The War On Drugs play a free show in NYC next month when they join Guided by Voices, Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and Cloud Nothings for a free Central Park Summerstage show on July 7 as part of CBGB Festival. They also play the XPoNential Music Festival in Camden, NJ.
