If you’re among those of us drowning in the leftover heat from Memorial Day … well, there’s actually no remedy for that (if anyone knows of a cure for sunburned elbows, you should let us know). But, you can find some relief of the musical kind at the air-conditioned Bowery Ballroom on Wednesday when Great Lake Swimmers returns to New York. The next night, Joe Pug and David Wax Museum will also play Bowery … so camp out, or come on back for round two on Thursday.
North Carolina’s The Honeycutters play a little further up-town on Thursday, as well. Check them out at Rodeo Bar … they’re sweet as pie. Below is video of one of my favorite tunes of theirs performed at a house show earlier this year.
Finally, I urge y’all to head to Rockwood Music Hall on Saturday night to check out the extremely talented Julia Easterlin. I knew her a few years back when she was a fresh face in the Boston music scene, still a Berklee undergrad. Can’t wait to see what she and her talents are doing present-day.
Saturday, June 2
Julia Easterlin — 7 p.m. at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 1

Kopecky Family Band, mynameisjohnmichael, New Bears — 7 p.m. at Mercury Lounge
