Governors Ball After Dark shows are here. IF you have no idea what Governors Ball After Dark shows are we have a full guide, but it's pretty simple: they're essentially after party concerts that take place after each night of Governors Ball (and the Wednesday / Thursday before). Unfortunately due to restrictions Governors Ball has to end fairly early each night by NYC standards, so you can keep the party going after Governors Ball with the after dark shows. Note that none of these are included with your Governors Ball wrist bands - they are an additional cost on top. If you are going to Governors Ball you can get first crack at these shows, and a lot of them will sell out, but they are separate.
Anyways, there's a lot of great shows this year, and they are really reasonably priced. Here's our picks for the best of the Gov Ball 2018 After Dark shows:
- Cut Copy, 11PM Friday at Brooklyn Bowl, $25 - I would kill to be at this show. Cut Copy in a non-festival venue is absolutely awesome and this is the perfect way to keep the Gov Ball party going after the festival ends.
- The Regrettes, 8PM at Knitting Factory, $15 - This band is an absolute steal to catch for $15. I just saw them at Coachella and they were one of my favorite performances of the whole weekend.
- Galantis, 10PM at Schimanski, $40 - A bit pricey for an After Dark show, but few of the shows will be as much as Galantis will be
- Wolf Alice, 10PM at Brookyln Bowl, $30 - Surprised Wolf Alice can now get $30, but I suppose they are getting fairly popular. Still love their first album and was a fan of the sophomore effort as well. Good performers live and if you don't mind leaving Sunday a bit early for Brooklyn I'd consider it
