The Postal Service, Solange, & More Shows To Catch This Week

1
The Postelles, Pretty Nice, Swaai Boys: The Studio at Webster Hall, June 11, $13
The Postelles make guitar-driven New York City rock like we rarely hear these days, while opener Swaai Boys have a knack for chilled-out jams perfect for an afternoon spent sipping dark-and-stormies. Together they're a recipe for a great summer night.
Tuesday, June 11, 7 p.m., The Studio at Webster Hall, 125 East 11th Street (between Third and Fourth avenues); 212-353-1600.
Northside Festival: Mac Demarco, Iceage, Solange, Petite Noir, Twin Sister, Sinkane, Chrome Canyon, The Walkmen, Bleached, Sonny and the Sunsets, Light Asylum, Why?, Black Flag, The Men, Helado Negro, and many more: various venues, June 13 through 20, $80
The Northside Festival continues to expand with its biggest and best lineup yet. This year, the fest features a week of showcases, panels, and films with some awesome free shows along the way (Solange, we're looking at you). You can get tickets for virtually all of the concerts individually or buy $80 passes for the whole shebang — a steal considering the number of quality acts this year.
June 13 through 20, Various Venues in Brooklyn.
