The summer festival season is upon us, dear Boogie readers (Who all rocked out at the Governors Ball?). And coming up Saturday, July 12 at South Street Seaport is the annual 4Knots Music Festival.

Indie rock stalwarts Dinosaur Jr. will headline The Village Voice‘s free, all ages, all-day event, which runs from 1-8pm. Mac DeMarco, who is ruling our world with his current single, “Passing Out Pieces,” will also bring his slacker rock to the stage, as will Beijing’s Re-TROS, Brooklyn fuzz pop outfit Dead Stars, and Nashville-bred country punk trio Those Darlins.
