Yeasayer. Here's hoping things are a bit warmer than this for their shows this summer.
Today Live Nation announced a slew of shows at Long Island's Nikon at Jones Beach Theater and New Jersey's PNC Bank Arts Center, and in addition to the many classic rock acts (with "classic rock" now being expanded to include the mid-period Headbanger's Ball era of Tesla, Firehouse, etc.) and country stars lining the bills we've got Brooklyn's own Yeasayer, who have been tapped to open the Flaming Lips/Weezer tour that stops at PNC on July 28 and at Jones Beach the following day. Other highlights: Ke$ha (Jones Beach, August 20); Janet Jackson (PNC, August 6); Aretha Franklin (Jones Beach, July 28/PNC, July 30); and the New York Pops playing the music of Billy Joel (Jones Beach, August 13), a performance that looks to be bereft of the Piano Man himself. There's also the Identity Festival, which looks to be an all-electronic-music Lollapalooza starring the likes of Rusko, Steve Aoki, and Chad Hugo. Tickets for a bunch of these concerts go on sale this Saturday; full schedules for both venues after the jump.
