KUBE 93 Summer Jam

Summer Jam is the antithesis of the Capitol Hill Block Party; a commercial concert filled with overplayed radio anthems, overpriced alcohol, and inebriated college kids. In other words, it’s a hell of a party, one in which you can down tequila and shout things like, “I’m sick of blow jobs, bitch, leave me alone!” (You can thank this year’s headliner Game for that.) Some may argue that the lineup, which also features Drake, Trey Songz, Fabolous, Rick Ross, and Jason Derulo, offers more hype than actual talent. But the Summer Jam experience sure beats the alternative: standing alongside sneering, Pabst-swilling hipsters and nodding along to MGMT’s new shiteous album. ERIKA HOBART
