Where has the summer gone? Sadly, the last week of summer is finally here. Looking back we've had some great times from EDC to SummerStage concerts at Central Park.

Here it is once again - our playlist for you to live up the last of this sweet, sweet summer.

Fresh from the Olympics, Mark Ronson jetted out to the Hamptons in a crisp pinstriped suit to spin at The Hamptons' favorite new poolside hangout, the Montauk Beach House. Joined by MNDR, who was armed with a microphone, the duo got seriously lucky with the weather situation, because it was absolutely storming an hour before they made an appearance. More»
The Surf Lodge is undoubtedly one of Montauk's main attractions. Whether you're staying at the hotel, eating at the acclaimed restaurant Byron, or simply stopping by just for the ambiance, The Surf Lodge is an eastern Long Island hot spot. This year, the Surf Lodge has arranged a concert series, featuring many must see performers. More»
One of the best kept music secrets in Montauk is not so secret anymore, and not to mention still free of cost. Overlooking Fort Pond Bay, the Surf Lodge has been hosting musical guests that in the past have included notable names such as Cults, Local Natives, Alberta Cross, and G-Love. More»
Since its inaugural concert in 2010, the Apollo in the Hamptons Benefit has always drawn an impressive list of star performers. The third annual event, which will take place on August 11th, will continue the tradition with Usher as the headliner. The Isley Brothers are also set to perform, and Pharrell Williams will be the creative director for the event, which will surely feature a slew of surprise high profile musicians. More»
Memorial Day weekend is only a little more than a week away -- meaning it's time to head out east for sun, sand, and the surf. What better way to set the mood than with the perfect playlist on your road trip (or train or Jitney ride) out there? Check out these 10 recently released tracks that will put in the summer mood (and put you ahead of the rest of the music nerds) this summer.
Summer is coming to an end, but the parties are just heating up! You know you have made it safely into after hours when there are few things going on around you... More»
This summer was an epic fail as far as concerts go (and that's putting it mildly) and now that the weekend is looming closer, we can't help but think of all the things we were looking forward to at the Music To Know (MTK) festival... but then we started thinking about all the things we weren't looking forward to. So here it is, what we will and most definitely will not miss about the MTK music festival. More»
Wait a second, did we miss something? When The Vaccines played their set at Escape to New York they got into a fight at the end and security came out. Apparently, the lead singer strangled the guitarist with a bra someone threw on stage, and then the guitarist ran into him twice. The lead singer put his elbow up and caught him in the face twice. Next, the guitarist ran and jumped into the drum kit, and as he got up pushed the drummer super hard. Was this staged? Was it for real? Any ideas? Lets us know! We want the deets! [Photo via]
Hamptonites hotly anticipated how the battle of the festivals would turn out this summer -- and, unfortunately, a battle didn't even get to happen. Finding out the disappointing news that the Music To Know festival (which was scheduled for this upcoming weekend) was cancelled around 4pm on Saturday because of low ticket sales was a bummer enough, but then, when the Escape to New York festival cancelled it's last day due to inclement weather, we were ready to pull our hair out. So what happened here? With the Hamptons being known as a hubbub for artists and creative minds, why couldn't these musical festivals survive out east?
