Governor's Ball Alternatives: Shows To Attend Around NYC Instead

It is no secret that New York City is about to turn all the way up this weekend. Governor's Ball is back in business with three smashing headliners: The Strokes, The Killers and Kanye West. Supporting acts are just as stellar, but what happens if you simply can't make the festival? The event is, without a doubt, a pretty penny and a rather large commitment -- but fear not! There are plenty alternatives for you to choose from this weekend that don't require you to make a trip to Randall's Island.

We've rounded up Gov Ball alternatives -- pick your poison.
