Aimee Mann's career-spanning concert of new classics and vintage favorites at the BRIC! Celebrate Brooklyn Festival in Prospect Park was the perfect way to spend a breezy summer solstice night.

Like The Head and the Heart, WFUV has been on board with Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats since the release of their first single. So when Rita Houston and I co-hosted a live broadcast from the WFUV Clubhouse at Forest Hills Stadium on Friday night with both bands, there was a lot of "FUV LUV" in the house, and fans shared their adoration with us all night.

Almost a decade into a career that began at open mic nights in Seattle, The Head and the Heart rolled into Forest Hills Stadium last night. The band has a long history with WFUV that includes playing our 2011 Holiday Cheer for FUV show at the Beacon Theatre only months after their debut album came out.

Before The National took the stage in front of a sold-out crowd at Forest Hills Stadium, I had a chance to talk with frontman Matt Berninger. I've been a fan of this band for many years, but this was the first time I'd met Matt.

A Summer of FUV is a Summer of live music. Not only are we back at the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival and the Solid Sound Festival, but we also debuted The WFUV Clubhouse at Forest Hills Stadium. Here's all the info you need for at-home or outdoor listening.

Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers brought their 40th Anniversary tour to Forest Hills Stadium for two shows this week, and with the WFUV Clubhouse open and rockin' on both nights (thanks to everyone who came by to hang out!), a few staffers had a chance to see the FUV Essentials artist in action.
