Just ask Little Big Town: Nothing says summer like making waves and catching rays during an evening cruise. Of course, it’s unlikely that you’ll hear any Little Big Town on tonight’s .WAVs Hudson River Tour, but with a lineup that includes Switch (who produced tracks for M.I.A. and, once upon a time, Major Lazer), Neon Indian (the early chillwaver who will be trying his hand at DJing), and Grandmaster Flash (the early DJ who better not try his hand at chillwave), it’s also unlikely that you’ll voice any complaints. Even openers like Octo Octa and Cousin Cole should kill it—back on land, the latter’s Tambourine Dream mixtape has soundtracked many late-night roof hangs.
