The annual River Rocks series of free shows on NYC's Pier 84 kicked off yesterday (7/9) and thanks to the weather, it got off to a rocky start. Rain and lightning caused headliner Waxahatchee's set to be cancelled, for which the band apologized and said "we'll make it up to NY." Speedy Ortiz did get to play, but unfortunately the weather wasn't too kind to singer/guitarist Sadie Dupuis' gear:

As far as we know, everything went over just fine for opener Weyes Blood's set though. Pictures of her and Speedy are in this post.

Waxahatchee are set to return to NYC on their tour with Kurt Vile, which hits Webster Hall on October 7 (tickets). They also have an Asbury Park show with Weyes Blood on 10/10 at Asbury Lanes (tickets).

Speedy will be back here on July 22 at Terminal 5 with Courtney Barnett and Torres. That show is sold out.

And Weyes Blood recently announced a tour with Little Wings that hits NYC on September 10 at Rough Trade. Tickets for that show go on sale today (7/10) at noon.

River Rocks continues with We Were Promised Jetpacks and Krill on 7/23 and U.S. Girls and Yuck on 8/6.
