We had a few contributors out and about Brooklyn this weekend. Each one will spend some time showing and telling about their experiences. Today we finish up checking in with Michelle Geslani, who really went for the gold in show attendance.
6/26 - BrooklynVegan @ Music Hall of Williamsburg Presents
MEMORY TAPES (also pictured in the header)
6/27 - Newton Barge Park- The MetroPCS Stage
LES SAVY FAV
Brooklyn's Les Savy Fav play an in-your-face, aggressive hybrid of post-hardcore meets post-punk. Frontman Tim Harrington is never at a loss for crazy stage antics (like spitting water all over himself and the crowd, sticking his mic down his pants, and shaking his romp at photogs) and absurd costumes. They played numerous crowd favorites off past records Let's Stay Friends and Go Forth. Their sixth full-length album, Root for Ruin, comes out this Fall on Frenchkiss Records.
6/27 - Active Child @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
The church met the dance floor as Active Child's soaring falsettos, tender harp-plucking and thumping beat machine made for an interestingly enjoyable set. The LA-based musician, Pat Grossi, recently put out an EP titled Curtis Lane, further showing the beauty and power in such experimentation and creativity.
6/27 - Wave Pictures @ Public Assembly (Front Room)
The quirky trio of indie-rockers flew all the way from the UK to play Northside Festival. They wooed the crowd with their anecdotal tales, and towards the end, even invited some friends to come sing on stage with them. The band's released countless albums since the late '90s, many of which were through the label Moshi Moshi.
