CL gives the season's upcoming shows some summer lovin'

So we're flipping through magazines one afternoon, and we realize, list issues are on the Hot List. And if everybody else is doing it, we could list the reasons we should, too. Summer is the season when there are so many distractions -- your time disappears as quickly as your skin on a dry Slip 'N Slide. Now, we at CL have compiled these lists of summer concerts to alert you to the best times and places to buy $7 beer and $25 T-shirts outside of NYC.
