"You know this is amazing. I didn't think there could be this much summer."
I suppose one shouldn't be too surprised when those words slip out of Emanual Lundgren's mouth. After all, the fiery red head and the lovely legion of fresh faced choral contributors that join him do call temperate-challenged Sweden home. I can only imagine what they put up with during the winter months.
Well, might I say, "Welcome to Brooklyn in August Emanuel..."
For only their second US show to date, much ballyhooed Swedish band I'm From Barcelona brought 20 members plus to McCarren Park for a ruckus Sunday afternoon pool party. And while some might find it easy to argue that the massive band thing is getting a tad overdone, it is hard to deny the fact that every one of Barcelona's members chip in to help furnish their nifty cheerleading sound, not to mention contribute to the wildly dynamic performance. Just try and keep up with these kids. While they rollick through "We're From Barcelona", "Oversleeping", "Treehouse", and "The Painter", you'll get lost in a sea of balloons, confetti, bear costumes
hey wait, is that Steve Zissou?...oh, and crowd surfing. Might I suggest watching this one over and over to really appreciate it. - David Pitz
