It's the moment New Yorkers have been waiting for since the freezing winter months. We've finally reached the month of June, and there's set to be a plethora of good times in store for the next few weeks. Some of the awesome memories might come from the amount of great shows heading to the Big Apple soon. Several artists will have multiple stops in the area, including an acoustic duo celebrating the 10 year anniversary of a critically acclaimed album. We'll also have performances from a heralded rap crew and a beloved Canadian goth rock outfit. You can take a look at what's going down in June below.
