These Governors Beach Club shows have quickly become one of our favorite parts of New York City summers. From the ferry rides over to the island to the unbelievable sunsets above the city, these shows play out in a setting that is truly nothing short of magical - one of those perfect combinations of aural and visual elements that only happens in this city.

If you don’t know Coastgaard, you soon will. They’re surf-rock, yes, and from Brooklyn, yes, but there’s something uniquely enticing about these guys. A lot of it is wrapped up in lead singer Matt Miller’s voice - calm, confident, reminiscent of a relaxed Hamilton Leithauser - but a lot of it is also contained in just how effortlessly their songs flow out. There’s a lightness to Coastgaard that is at times very similar to Alt J or a sunny summer breeze. You just trust that this band knows what they’re doing - and they’re not going to beat you over the head with noise to prove it. We recommend their BTR Live Performance video to get a taste of what we’re talking about.
Thievery Corporation has been composing intricately electronic music weaved with lush textures since the mid-1990s. With the recent release of their album, ‘Saudade,’ the duo has devoted its sound to the Brazilian bossa nova genre that connected Eric Hilton and Rob Garza at the inception of Thievery Corporation.
Australian psychedelic/dance band Jagwar Ma formed in 2009 in Sydney. Last summer, they released their debut album Howlin and immediately turned more than a few heads at doNYC, most notably for containing some of the most delicious drum sounds we’ve heard in a long while.
Since the album’s release, we’ve caught the band all around the city - and we’re stoked to be featuring tomorrow’s show at Webster Hall with Cities Aviv as a recommended event. If you’re looking for something to do, this might be the show for you - especially if you’re a fan of any groovy pop-driven dance/rock such as St. Lucia, Foals or Tame Impala.
