4th of July at Metrograph: The Concert Film

June 30 to July 4
Try as you might, the plain fact is that unless you're Robert Christgau you've probably missed seeing a lot of the greats at their absolute greatest. Short of a time machine, there's no better solution to this problem than the concert film, a supplement--or an antidote--to the summer festival season, which rules supreme for one big kick-out-the-jams weekend at Metrograph, featuring all of the riffs and none of the beer lines.

On Fire Island

Sixty miles southeast of Manhattan, Fire Island acts as a calming tonic for those (mostly queer folks) looking for an escape during New York's balmiest months.
