The Drums at Surf Lodge during Memorial Day Weekend (via)
The Drums

Montauk's Surf Lodge, a restaurant, hotel and sometimes concert venue booked by C3 (Lollapalooza, ACL), have partnered with SPIN for two shows this summer. Dirty Projectors will play the venue on June 30 and Real Estate on July 7. It's about a three-hour drive from NYC, but is a great vacation spot, so if you're hoping to see these bands and want an excuse to go to the Hamptons, this would be a good time. Hopefully you won't have any memory-erasing experiences while you're there.

In related news, the Surf Lodge is no longer owned by Edgemere Montauk, LLC. Curbed Hamptons reports that it was recently sold to Michael Walrath's investmenet company, Montauk Properties, LLC. The lodge has also got a new team to help revitalize their guestrooms, landscaping, menu, juices, music, workout and more. The Summer 2012 Concert Series is being overseen by GrandLife's Tommy Saleh and Mandy Brooks. That series kicked off over Memorial Day Weekend with a show by The Drums. The photo above is from that show. No word on what other shows will go down this summer yet (besides Dirty Projectors and Real Estate).

The War on Drugs and Dean & Britta also have a show coming up in Long Island.

Dirty Projectors also have other upcoming shows including two in NYC: MHOW on 7/9 and Prospect Park on 7/10, the latter of which you can win tickets to.

Real Estate have other shows too, including a NYC show at Webster hall on August 11 with R. Stevie Moore and Andrew Cedermark. Tickets for that show are still available.
