Yeasayer in the woods (via their recording blog)
Yeasayer

"Three of the best established indie bands in the New York City music scene - two relatively newcomers, Matt & Kim and Yeasayer, and one perennial favorite Ted Leo & The Pharmacists -- are scheduled to headline the 11th annual RiverRocks music series of free outdoor concerts at Hudson River Park's Pier 54 this summer.

With the Hudson River and the setting sun as the backdrop of its Pier 54 stage (at 14th Street), RiverRocks kicks off its three-date series Thursday, July 9 featuring Brooklyn's Matt & Kim with the Chicago-based electronic team Flosstradamus opening the evening....

RiverRocks is Hudson River Park's signature concert series staged on the Pier 54 waterfront adjacent to New York City's Meatpacking District (at 14th Street). Gates open at 6 p.m. for all RiverRocks shows, which are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.

I've been waiting for Ted Leo to announce a summer show. The dates of the three free, outdoor concerts is below...

---

Thursday, July 9 - Matt & Kim, with Flosstradamus

Thursday, July 23 - Ted Leo and The Pharmacists, with Radio 4, and Extra Golden

Thursday August 13 - Yeasayer, with Amazing Baby

Flosstradamus are also playing Studio B in Brooklyn on July 10th.

Ted also has dates in NJ and other places.

I always love seeing Ted play! And hey 3:22-- Amazing Baby is sleeping w/ me. I'm the goddess of rock and have power over all NYC venues. I'm going to keep booking them just to frickin' annoy the hell out of you.

Anon 4:25 and 5:40 - yes! What an awesome GbV show that was... "Sad If I Lost" as show opener with the sun setting into the river behind...

Kinda depressing when you compare it to this year's lineup.

You guys are crazy radio 4 is the sh!t

Posted by Anonymous | May 5, 2009 9:43 PM

seeing gbv there was great.

Posted by Anonymous | May 5, 2009 9:53 PM

Don't forget the White Stripes show there.

Seen GbV a few times, always terrible shows, but the Pier 54 show was great.

How does Amazing Baby get on all these bills? Ugh.

"I hope there are more shows added..Last year we had WIRE and BORIS"

You are thinking about the wrong venue. Pier 54 only has 3 concerts a season.

Radio 4 blow. really awful.

Posted by Anonymous | May 6, 2009 11:13 AM

radio 4 is outstanding, so glad they're playing with ted leo. really looking forward to matt & kim with flossy, hopefully they'll collaborate a bit on stage?

I'm a bigger fan of Amazing Larry.

Remember when the Roots played on the pier? I had to go home and have sex after that.
