Dahday’s Picks For July 4th Weekend Live Events

Nothing personifies the fun and sun of the summer more than July 4th weekend.

Some fire up the grill. Others head to the beach. But how about catching a live event? Here are some fun some things to do this week:

Baseball and Fireworks!
Collage baseball_edited-1For sports fans looking to check out a ballgame, you have the treat of having lots of choices. Both New York MLB teams are in town this week, with the New York Mets hosting the exciting Chicago Cubs June 30-July 2 and the Yankees playing a key series against the first place Tampa Rays July 3-5.

In Philadelphia, the birthplace of Independence, the Phillies host post-game fireworks shows after the July 1st and July 2nd games against the Milwaukee Brewers.

If you want to enjoy baseball for less, the minor league Brooklyn Cyclones, Long Island Ducks, Staten Island Yankees and Trenton Thunder all host post-game fireworks shows this weekend.

We Want The Funk!
If music is more what you are looking for, here is a funky suggestion: head out to Governor’s Island on July 3rd and enjoy George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic. This “Funk N’ Cue” also includes a chance to eat and drink to the sounds of The Mothership.

Welcome America!
Every July 4th weekend, Philly hosts a free concert featuring chart-topping artists backed by the legendary Roots crew. This year, R&B star Miguel headlines the annual Welcome America! celebration on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The show is absolutely free. Just head down early for your best possible spot to see the show.

African Arts Festival in Brooklyn!
Head to Commodore Barry Park in Brooklyn and for just a $5 donation enjoy a celebration of Black music. The International African Arts Festival features artists like salsera Cita Rodriguez, rapper Talib Kweli, R&B legend Normon Connors, rockers Living Colour and world music artist Kaïssa.

Dance The Night Away!

If dancing under the stars is your thing, check out Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night Swing. This week you can either dance some Mambo, jam out to traditional New Orleans Jazz or soak in the sounds of Motown. There is admission to get on the dance floor near the stage but nothing stops you from enjoying the music in the plaza just outside the dance floor gates.

Dahday’s Five Favorite Clips of The Late Juan Formell’s Los Van Van

In honor of the legendary Los Van Van founder Juan Formell, who died on May 1, here are Dahday’s five favorite live clips of this timba powerhouse:

Here is Los Van Van performing “Se Muere La Tia.” Formell is playing the bass guitar:

Led by the fedora-donning lead singer Pedro Calvo, here is Los Van Van performing “Por Encima Del Nivel (Sandunguera).” Anyone who has seen Los Van Van live knows Calvo always makes sure to bring up on stage a lady to dance with before the show is over:

Los Van Van made a controversial tour stop to Miami in 1999, with thousands of protesters outside the arena – and thousands of adoring fans inside the arena. Here is a clip of the entire concert:

Here is the band performing “Seis Semanas” at the same 1999 Miami Arena concert:

Finally, here is the legendary group performing the aptly named “Somos Cubanos:”
