[HEAR YOUR FAVORITE BANDS]
Regardless of what kind of music you like, you’ll find something you enjoy at Bonnaroo. Seriously—the headliners are Arcade Fire, The Black Keys, Eminem and Widespread Panic. Held on a farm in Tennessee, the fest also has a comedy and cinema tent. The only annoying thing will be all of the neo-hippies Hacky-Sacking to String Cheese Incident. June 9-12. More info at Bonnaroo.com.
Is the Pacific Northwest a little more your thing? Do you dream of hang- ing out with Death Cab-loving hipsters while you watch the Washington sun set? Then Sasquatch is the festival for you. This year, you can chill in the mountains while watching Wilco, which might just be nirvana. Memorial Day weekend. More info: SasquatchFestival.com
[HAVE SUMMERTIME FUN]
3 SUPERHERO MOVIES
This summer, you can get your superhero on like never before. There are movies about Thor, Green Lantern, Captain America and the X-Men—and it looks like most take pointers from the best of the genre over the last few years. Everything kicks off with the release of Thor on May 6. Odin’s raven!
We don’t know why this site exists, but we can’t look away.
5 BASEBALL GAMES
America’s pastime is one of the best ways to pass a summer evening, and chances are you have opportunities to see baseball no matter where you live. Even if the city you live in doesn’t have a pro team, check out minor and semi-pro leagues—they’re much cheaper than Major League games and still really fun. If you don’t have any options like that, join a summer baseball or softball league. You’ll be surprised how kid-like you feel when you get out on the field.
6 DON’T FORGET YOUR PARENTS
Mother’s Day is May 8. Father’s Day is June 19. Be thoughtful. You’re welcome.
