At this point many people are probably thinking that "Citysol" is merely a free Les Savy Fav show happening this Saturday at Stuyvesant Park in NYC. WRONG! Citysol is actually four days long, and also includes Friday night at South Street Seaport.
How will this week's Seaport concert be different from the ones in weeks past? Well, besides the fact that this is the only week that Beat the Devil & Menomena are playing, there really isn't any difference. BrooklynVegan & Solar One (Citysol) are just helping "present" the 'River to River' show - aka counteracting all evil associated with the 'Friday the 13th' date which in turn will guarantee harmony and 'good times' for all by the water. Oh, and there will also be a table where you can "switch to a green energy package with ConEdison Solutions", so bring your electric bill.
Also coming up at South Street Seaport....
July 13 - Menomena, Beat the Devil
July 20 - Bishop Allen, Rock Plaza Central
July 27 - SUICIDE
The ubiquitous electronic sounds emanating from many of today's most acclaimed indie music performers owe much of their art to the often troubled group known as Suicide, aka Alan Vega, on vocals, and Martin Rev on keyboard. The drummer-less, rhythm-machine-driven, guitar-free duo was effectively the world's first art-rock, synth-pop band, but it has taken nearly 30 years for the band to received its warranted props.Last year they had the New York Dolls - this year SUICIDE
Aug 3 - A Night of Billie Holiday Remixed and Reimagined
Aug 10 - Au Revoir Simone, Metronomy
Aug 17 - The National, The Forms, Takka Takka
