There’s nothing quite like a day spent by the water listening to amazing music, and when that music includes live performances by Dinosaur Jr., Mac DeMarco, Speedy Ortiz and Radkey, the experience is even better. This year, the Village Voice hosts its 4th Annual 4Knots Festival at South Street Seaport once more, and the line-up has become even more comprehensive over the years. After an unfortunate dropout due to illness by the Julie Ruin, scuzzy legends Dinosaur Jr. fill those pretty big shoes quite nicely. They are joined by a number of acts that draw inspiration from the veteran band. Afterward, the day-long party continues at Webster Hall with a special performance from Ab-Soul with guests Jarren Benton and YC the Cynic. We’ve got you covered all day and night.
