New York City is the epicenter of American patriotism.

It is this city that has provided many who have arrived here from different parts of the world a chance to live out the American dream, and that is one of the main reasons why many celebrate the 4th of July. There will be a ton of events happening in and around NYC to celebrate Uncle Sam’s birthday, and for those looking for a great concert or show, here are the best to choose from.

July 2 @ 7 pm 
Rough Trade NYC -- 64 N. 9th St., Brooklyn, NY 11249 
(718) 388-4111 

There are two things that Brooklyn music fans love. Their corner bodegas and the band Bodega, the latter of which may be more popular than the former. Bodega got their start in this famed borough, and to pay tribute to the area that shows them so much love, they'll play a set at the Rough Trade to promote their debut LP Endless Scroll

Men In Blazers Live 
July 2 @ 7 pm 
Music Hall of Williamsburg -- 66 N. 6th St., Brooklyn, NY 11211 
(718) 486-5400

Those sharp-dressing dudes are taking their act across the U.S.A. For those who don't who Roger Bennett and Michael Davies are, they're the two most popular icons of Premier League soccer, and they'll bring their unique knowledge of the Beautiful Game to the fans at Music Hall of Williamsburg as part of their 2018 Across America tour to coincide with the World Cup. 

2018 XXL Freshman Class Live

Being on the XXL Freshman Class list is what every hip-hop artist just getting their start aspires to be on. After the July 4th festivities have subsided, the famed hip-hop magazine will honor its 2018 Freshman Class with a live performance at New York's Terminal 5. Honorees scheduled to perform include Lil Pump and BlockBoy JB. 

The Nude Party Record Release 
July 5 @ 8:30 pm 
Rough Trade NYC -- 64 N. 9th St., Brooklyn, NY 11249 
(718) 388-4111 

They're probably the most interesting band ever to come out of Boone, NC. The Nude Party are a perfectionist in their quest to push the boundary of addicting bad taste to the music public and to celebrate a new album, this unique band will head to the Big Apple to put on a record release party no one should miss.
