We’re getting pretty hyped for summer, and the nonstop summer show announcements this week are sure amping up our excitement. Williamsburg’s House of Vans is excited about how close to summer we are, and are declaring their love for the time of year with a bunch of free concerts called The Almost Summer Series at the House of Vans in May and June. The lineup? Holy punk, the lineup is tremendous, starting with The Julie Ruin, the current band of Bikini Kill founder and all around punk goddess Kathleen Hanna! Plus: Pusha T! Parquet Courts! All free! And like all House of Vans shows, they come with all-you-can-drink PBR too.

5/9: The Julie Ruin, Bleached, Youth Code (DJ)

5/23: Parquet Courts, Radioactivity, Pill, The Blackouts (DJ)

6/13: Pusha T, DJ Envy and a TOP SECRET Performer
