This Weekend’s Concerts, From Karen Elson to New Kids on the Block

By

Today Out on the Weekend goes national, breaking out of New York City to get awesome shots of Matt and Kim and B.o.B. rocking something called the Summer Solstice Beach Ballyhoo in Santa Monica and Steve Earle upstate at the Great Hudson River Revival. There are great photos from right here in town as well, including Band of Horses and Jack White's lady Karen Elson inaugurating the new season of the Williamsburg Waterfront shows, and New Kids on the Block (!) and the Backstreet Boys (!!!) at Radio City Music Hall. All this, plus the New Pornographers, the Cringe, Melvins, the Morning Benders, and, of course, Shawn Colvin.
