This week we're taking a quick five from releasing new videos as we hustle in the background to bring you a veritable bevy of GREAT shows. Seriously, we've got some solid gold eye-and-ear-candy on the way. But for now, we're kicking our feet up and bringing you some classic summer shows. Today's focus is Man Man
, who taught us the importance of face paint and short jorts on the shores of the East River last summer.
Editor Nina Mashurova was there: "They sound like a pirate invasion, an electroclash polka, an orchestra turned party turned interplanetary zoo. Gravelly-voiced vocalist and resident wild man Honus Honus howls over melodic sax swells, tribal rhythms, high-pitched refrains, creating a cavalcade of sound that wields plenty of skill to match the spectacle."
Crack a cold one and join us on the deck for this Baeble classic. -joe puglisi
