Summer is officially here! At Lincoln Center, this means we're counting down the days until Midsummer Night Swing and Lincoln Center Out of Doors. Our Director of Public Programming Jill Sternheimer—the curatorial force behind both series—primes us for the season with this playlist designed to capture all the blissful joy (and potential pitfalls) of the backyard barbecue. So have a listen and wherever you go this summer remember: wipe your feet really good on the rhythm rug and lay off Loretta Lynn's man if you don't wanna go to Fist City.
